Oklahoma City Thunder Survive Massive Meltdown; The Georges Rip Atlanta a New One; A Brittney Griner Photo Leaves Us Speechless

Russell Westbrook

Mid-way through the fourth quarter of last night’s Thunder/Rockets game, Oklahoma City was up 15 at one point and for a minute Houston looked like they were just trying to stay in touch. Russell Westbrook (29 points) was slashing to the cup, Serge Ibaka was knocking down mid-range jumpers and Kevin Martin was pump-faking everyone in red to stick wide open threes.
