Oklahoma City: The Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers are not even in the same conference, still they played as if they were long-time enemies. Russell Westbrook scored 37 points, Paul George added 31, and Oklahoma City beat Philadelphia 122-112 on Sunday night for their eighth straight victory. The game was more interesting than usual from the start, with a lot of extra trash talking and bumping. The teams combined for 51 fouls and 61 free throw attempts. It carried over from Oklahoma City’s triple-overtime victory in Philadelphia in December. Westbrook said, “Leading into this game, after a little talk after game one, I think to this game, I kind of was looking forward to it.” He even added, “But you know — Oklahoma City 2-0.” Westbrook made just 6 of 20 shots in the first half, when he was knocked to the ground trying to take a charge as Joel Embiid threw down a vicious dunk over him. He was 8 of 13 in the second half and also had 14 assists and nine rebounds.
