Russell Westbrook’s season-high 46 points, six assists, and six rebounds extended the Oklahoma City Thunder’s six-game win streak with a 121-112 win over the Washington Wizards. Westbrook shot nine-for-11 in the fourth quarter for 21 points, helping the Thunder close out the game after already surrendering a 19-point lead earlier.

Paul George contributed 18 points and four steals while playing elite level defense. Steven Adams was also dynamic, dominating the offensive glass to finish with seven offensive rebounds (10 total), and diving for loose balls on multiple occasions.

Bradley Beal fueled the Wizards comeback as he had 41 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists, and John Wall added 21 points and 12 assists. Washington remains winless in Oklahoma City(0-9), and are now tied for fifth in the Eastern conference with their fourth loss in five games.
