With Westbrook and Carmelo injured, Thunder get clobbered by Lakers

12 February 2018

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers have been in great form as they've won seven of their past nine games and they will be aiming for a fourth straight win after blowing past the Suns in a 112-93 home win on Tuesday. A day after the Lakers leaked they were shifting their focus to the 2019 free agency class, George said he wouldn't rule out considering them if they have space for him.

After a slow start, Walton got his answer. During that game, the Lakers front court pair of Brook Lopez and Julius Randle combined for 39 points as the Lakers shot an impressive 43 percent from the three-point line.

"I don't know if whether I'm going to LA, or what I'm going to do this offseason. I was curious to see how long it would take and if our guys would be able to perform after two of their teammates got traded away and, obviously, they did a nice job", Walton said.

The Lakers ended the first quarter on a 21-8 run that saw them end the game's first frame with a 30-27 lead. Rookie Josh Hart broke his streak of double-doubles but finished the game with 10 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Anthony is listed questionable along with Russell Westbrook due to an ankle injury. Steven Adams was the only other Thunder player to score in doubles figures.

However, the man himself has provided Oklahoma City with some relief, as he has stated in an interview with Sam Amick of USA Today that he is happy with the Thunder and that will play into his decision at the end of the season. It's just a matter of whether they get the opportunity to say yes. Paul George led the team in scoring with 38 points on 11 of 23 shooting to go with six steals, Russell Westbrook added 34 points with nine rebounds and nine assists while Jerami Grant provided the spark off the bench with 16 points. Patrick Patterson, who replaced Anthony, was scoreless in 26 minutes.

After starting 0-for-7 from three-point range in the first quarter, the Lakers made 6-of-9 threes after that in the second quarter, creating some separation on the scoreboard.

Still, he isn't ruling out leaving the Thunder in free agency.

With the National Basketball Association trade deadline being later today at 3pm ET, it wouldn't be surprising to hear about at least one team send a trade offer to the Thunder to see if they can pry away PG13.
