Westbrook, Thunder roll right past Bucks

Russell Westbrook and the Thunder earned an easy win against the Bucks.

MILWAUKEE — The Oklahoma City Thunder were in town on Halloween night to take on the Milwaukee Bucks and the crowd was ready for a superstar MVP battle between Russell Westbrook and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Unfortunately, the Bucks’ offense failed to show up in the contest and it was a blowout from start to finish for the Thunder, who wound up winning 110-91 for their second straight win.

Westbrook was his usual productive self even though his scoring output was low for his standards. The do-it-all explosive point guard finished with 12 points, nine assists and 10 rebounds in 27 minutes.

Paul George scored a team-high 20 points, Carmelo Anthony added 17 and big man Steven Adams registered a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Westbrook and Adams put on a pick-and-roll clinic and connected on a few stirring alley-oops.

The Thunder players were in great spirits in the postgame locker room after coming away with the big road win, especially Anthony, who had some fun during Westbrook’s media availability.

George, meanwhile, says the Thunder are starting to find a groove both defensively and offensively.

For the Bucks, Antetokounmpo was the only player who had it going, as the versatile swingman racked up 28 points and eight rebounds in the loss on 9-of-14 shooting from the field.

The 22-year-old didn’t receive any help from his teammates whatsoever. Besides Antetokounmpo, no other Milwaukee player reached double-figures.

  1. KD’s “home”coming to OKC would be more interesting this time!
