Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony could play against Cavaliers

  • Russell Westbrook left and Carmelo Anthony

Russell Westbrook's and Carmelo Anthony's status for the Thunder's high-profile game Wednesday AEDT against the reconstructed Cavaliers remains up in the air after both sat out their second consecutive game Monday AEDT. Expect another strong showing from George on Tuesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers if Russ and Melo remain out.

Paul George led the Thunder with 33 points. The Cavs tied a franchise record for points allowed. "I wanted to have somebody if they came in late with him at the end of the first quarter, beginning of the second quarter and Paul [George] was off the floor, and to have some length and size on him".

In the Cavs' 121-99 rout over the Celtics, Cleveland's four newest members combined for 49 points, led by 17 from Clarkson. The Thunder beat Memphis Sunday without them, and has won two out of three (including that victory over Golden State). Russell Westbrook is easily a top five player in this league, Steven Adams may become a top three center in the National Basketball Association over the next two years, and role players Terrance Ferguson, Alex Abrines, Jerami Grant, and Josh Huestis have already showed signs of improvement over the course of this season. The Oklahoma City Thunder are -1 over the Cleveland Cavaliers assuming Russell Westbrook plays for the home team.

Amazon is laying off hundreds as it praises Alexa
For the employees affected, the company works trying to find new roles in areas where hiring is taking place. As one of the country's largest private employers, Amazon has been hiring aggressively in recent years.


Thunder fans chanted the same several times Sunday, and he gave them more reasons to feel that way. Alex Abrines scored 16. Steven Adams went for 25 points (on 12-of-13 shooting!) with 10 rebounds in that win over the Cavs last month. "The look is said to by inspired by George's hometown of Palmdale, with green representing the inland city's desert and dust, while orange is symbolic of it sunsets".

Oklahoma City has the talent to be very good for a long time. It was amusing. I called Sam after that and said, 'That was to my buddies, that wasn't to you guys.' He laughed about it. Paul is at a place where he has a chance to compete at the highest level against some of the best teams and for us we hit a little bit of the reset button, but Victor (Oladipo) has been at the very least super special for us and somebody we can really build around.

He looked on his way out a week ago, but the massive roster overhaul before the deadline might turn the table around for the Cavaliers.
