Thunder's Andre Roberson stretchered off court after scary fall

Oklahoma City Thunder's Paul George says Russell Westbrook is making his free-agent decision easier and easier

Fast Westbrook carries OKC past Washington

Oklahoma City rattled off its eighth straight win Sunday with a 122-112 home victory over the 76ers.

The only downer for the Thunder was that guard Andre Roberson was taken off on a stretcher in the third quarter, having landed hard after trying to jump for an alley-oop.

This is the second game of the season between these two teams.

Against the Thunder Drummond will find him again facing another strong big man in Steven Adams.

The Oklahoma City Thunder, on the other hand, are flying at the moment.

A number of statistics point to Roberson's value at the defensive end of the court.

Westbrook scored a triple-double, including 31 points.

Oklahoma City forward Paul George will replace Cousins on Team LeBron in the All-Star Game. They won today's game by a score of 121-108.

So what? Well, it makes a difference.

Anthony scored his 25,000th point on a free throw with 8:30 left in the third quarter. The Thunder should have the advantage on that side of the ball. Both George and Westbrook rank within the top five in steals and they combined for six against the Wizards. Expect that to decline now that George's primary assignment will shift to defending the opponent's best scorer.

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.

Devin Booker hit a sweet step-back 3-pointer before leaving the Suns' loss to the Rockets.

That partially reflects Oklahoma City's inability to come up with a good alternative on the wing.

The 33-year-old Anthony was playing in his 1,024th game.

Roberson finished with five points and five rebounds in 22 minutes against Detroit. Cousins was averaging 25.2 points and a career-best 12.9 rebounds per game in his first full seasons with New Orleans. His length is useful on defense, but Huestis has shot 28.4 percent from downtown.

"We're going to find out more details and imaging when we get back to Oklahoma", Donovan reported.
