Westbrook stood no chance against the 76ers giant, who was not done, staring down the Thunder star on his way back down the court in Oklahoma City. He was taken to the locker room and examined by a Spurs team doctor.
The win - the Thunder's eighth in a row - was helped by Russell Westbrook, who had 37 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been on a tear lately as they've won 10 of their last 13 games and they will be gunning for a ninth straight win after blowing past the 76ers in a 122-112 home win on Sunday.

"We just tried to find somebody to make a three", coach Brett Brown said of his team's futile effort from long range.
I think any Sixers fan that watches the team regular can admit that Robert Covington is a streaky shooter. The Warriors fell 92-88 at Boston on November 16 in which they squandered a 17-point lead. So you can not turn it over. The Thunder had 18 offensive rebounds and 60 total rebounds, while the 76ers had seven and 50, respectively.
