After the Thunder had run a few straight pick-and-rolls at Enes Kanter in the first half, Steven Adams walked up to Knicks coach David Fizdale and told him, "Sub him out. He doesn't know how to play defense. We're running pick and roll every time." Adams, who is very close friends with Kanter, explained his trash talk and reasoning.

Paul George was brilliant again in the absence of Russell Westbrook, scoring 35 points in 29 minutes of 13-22 shooting (5-11 from 3) and running the Thunder beautifully as they beat the Knicks 128-103. OKC dished out 32 assists, hit 16-33 from 3 and swarmed the Knicks from start to finish. Next up for OKC is the Suns on Saturday, with a chance Westbrook is back for it.

Russell Westbrook participated in practice, though the Thunder didn't do any contact. He's "doing more and more each day," Billy Donovan says, like running, cutting, etc. Sounds like he's getting close, but it's unclear on his availability for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Paul George switched up OKC's defense himself in the fourth quarter and told Terrance Ferguson to guard Devin Booker, who scored just 4 points on 1-6 shooting in the fourth.
