The Oklahoma City Thunder forward became the 21st player to score 25,000 points in an National Basketball Association career Saturday, as he scored 21 points in the Thunder's 121-108 win over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday.
Bucks 110, Bulls 96: Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 27 points and visiting Milwaukee improved to 3-0 since interim head coach Joe Prunty replaced the fired Jason Kidd. Oklahoma City has led the National Basketball Association seemingly all season in any sort of takeaway category.
Tobias Harris netted a team-high 21, while Andre Drummond had 12 points and 13 rebounds.
"I thought our defense in the first half was really good", Donovan said.
He said it repeatedly, specifically to Paul George, who stood in front of him and just to the side of the scorer's table during a stoppage. "Because I know how it is. So real unfortunate. But one thing about Dre, man, he's tough, and he's a strong person, so he'll definitely persevere through it". "It's a huge blow to us, but we're just gonna have to rely on some other players".
US shutdown: Govt services closed as working week begins
Should the government remain shut down after that time, work will continue as scheduled, but without pay going forward. President Trump on Monday accused Democrats of prioritizing services and security for noncitizens over us citizens.
Russell Westbrook is the best player on the Thunder team from a fantasy basketball perspective, with 53.75 fantasy points per game.
It looks like the Thunder saw the real Pistons as well - an inconsistent, defensively deficient team that lacks cohesion and a bona fide offensive lynchpin. In 39 minutes, Drummond's stat line came out to thirty points, four assists, 2four rebounds, three steals and six blocks with 5 turnovers.
"A lot changes", Westbrook said.
Westbrook tried to take a charge, but instead got thrown to the ground on the receiving end of a massive poster dunk.
Oklahoma City won both regular season games, meaning the teams can't meet again until the NBA Finals. A group of five Detroit backups helped cut the deficit to nine around the midway point of the fourth, but Oklahoma City was able to hold on.
The beef between the reigning MVP and Embiid began back in December when Westbrook led the Thunder to a 119-117 victory over the Sixers.
