OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma — Russell Westbrook recorded his seventh triple-double (22 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists) of the season to help the Thunder defeat the injury plagued San Antonio Spurs 90-87 on Sunday night. The Thunder have won their second straight after losing five of their previous six.
“There’s a lot more trust being built, which is what was going to come around. We’ve been in the battles, we’ve been on the losing end,” George said. “You just tinker stuff, you work off stuff, and you just figure out ways to win.”
Steven Adams added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Thunder. The Thunder (10-12, 8-3 Home) who will face the Utah Jazz on Tuesday, held the Spurs to 40.8 percent shooting.
