Real Plus/Minus in Thunder’s win over Dallas

Paul George dropped 37 points and if it wasn’t for a quick timeout by Billy Donovan, the Fresno State alum was about to pull up from three and make it an even 40. George’s 37 points led Oklahoma City to a 112-97 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday evening.

PLUS

Westbrook vs Smith Jr.

It was the first time we have gotten the chance to see Russell Westbrook vs. Dennis Smith Jr. And it was fascinating to watch. Westbrook was playing against his younger self and his younger self was not backing down. Smith Jr. Played 33 minutes scoring 15 points on 6-of-17 shots at 35.3 percent and 2-of-6 from three at 33.3 percent while also getting five rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and five turnovers. Westbrook in return scored 27 points on 6-of-18 shots at 33.3 percent and 3-of-5 at 60 percent from three with six rebounds, five assists, three steals and four turnovers.

Smith Jr. Is going to be a superstar in this league and we’re going to enjoy every second of it but until the day Westbrook plays his last game Westbrook will be the man in this league.

Paul George and Russell Westbrook

Carmelo Anthony missed this game against the Dallas Mavericks with a sore back.

So we finally got to see what Russell Westbrook and Paul George would look like together by them selves and it was beautiful. Westbrook finished with 32:41 minutes 27 points shooting 6-of-18 at 33.3 percent and 3-of-5 at 60 percent from three, six rebounds and five assists while George finished with 42:10 minutes 37 points shooting 12-of-22 at 54.5 percent and 7-of-12 at 58.3 percent from three, eight rebounds and five assists .

George and Westbrook exploded in the third quarter scoring a combined 32 points shooting 8-of-13 and 5-of-7 from three point range, five rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Westbrook black shoes

Russell Westbrook returned after half time after changing his shoes from fluro orange Jordan shoe’s to black and blue Jordan shoe’s and it changed everything for Westbrook and the Thunder. Westbrook shot 4-of-8 at 50 percent and 3-of-4 from three point range at 75 percent for 18 points. Westbrook also recorded two rebounds, three assists and only one turnover in the second half. Westbrook exploded in the second half from three point range while also trash talking the Mavericks bench counting every time he hit a three pointer.

Black shoe Westbrook is phenomenal.

MINUS 

Early shooting struggles

In the first quarter the Oklahoma City Thunder shot 5-of-17 from the field at 29.4 percent and 2-of-7 from three point range at 28.6 percent. Russell Westbrook shot 1-of-6 from the field and 0-of-1 from three it was a slow start for the Thunder and if it wasn’t for some good free throw shooting 6-of-8 at 75 percent the Thunder could have been in a hole.

Westbrook’s orange shoes

Russell Westbrook decided to start the game wearing fluro orange Jordan shoes and it didn’t go to well. In the first half Westbrook shot 2-of-10 at 20 percent and 0-of-1 from three point range at zero percent for nine points. Westbrook also recording four rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in the first half against the Dallas Mavericks.
