Carmelo Anthony on the Thunder's playing well against the top teams in the league: "I don't think that's been our issue, it's beating teams we're supposed to beat."

Through 46 games, Russell Westbrook is averaging 24.8 ppg, 9.7 rpg and 10.1 apg. Assuming he plays all 82, he needs to average 10.4 rebounds and 9.9 assists in the remaining 36 games to average a triple-double again.

Paul George on if he was aware LeBron needed 25 for 30,000, and if that was a little extra motivation defensively: "I've been a part of a lot of those baskets he had so that's an achievement or milestone I didn't want to be a part of."

George scores 36, Thunder blast LeBron, Cavs 148-124

LeBron James couldn't get to 30,000 career points and he and his Cleveland teammates couldn't stop Paul George, Russell Westbrook or Carmelo Anthony as the Oklahoma City Thunder thumped the Cavaliers 148-124 on Saturday for their fourth straight win.

It wasn't long ago where the Thunder would consistently struggle to score 100 points in a game. They hit the 100-mark today against the Cavs with 3:40 left in the third quarter. Bit of a chicken/egg thing as to if it's good Thunder offense, or the Cavs defense is really that bad.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

With 76 points, the Thunder scored the most points in a half this season, firing on all cylinders against the Cavs' limp defense. Russell Westbrook piled up 11 assists as Paul George dropped 25 points on 8-11 shooting, including 5-7 from 3. In games against the better teams, the Thunder have had a different look to them this season, and at least for this first half, it's more of the same.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

About as good as it gets for the Thunder in the first quarter in Cleveland. Westbrook was dynamic scoring and creating (7 assists), while George, Anthony and Patterson all knocked down clean looks. When OKC plays with pace in their offensive sets, they often get good looks, and tempo was cranked up in the opening 12 minutes.

Charles Moynihan ESPN Producer 

Thunder coach Billy Donovan on the challenges of playing LeBron James: "I have always felt the best part of his game is when he passes the ball. He is as good as it gets in manipulating defenses."

Melo: Game is 'fun again' after accepting role

After scoring a game-high 27 points on Wednesday, Carmelo Anthony said the game is "starting to become fun again," as he has accepted his role with the Thunder.

After saying that the Lakers let Memphis "punk us all over the floor" on Monday, Luke Walton said OKC "beat us up" and that the Lakers "weren't tough" as Los Angeles surrendered 21 offensive rebounds. The Lakers were out-rebounded 54-30 as Steven Adams set the tone with his 21 points and 10 rebounds (seven offensive). The Lakers' starting five totaled eight rebounds. "We weren't tough," Walton said. "They beat us up... the way Adams was doing whatever he wanted out there on the floor, we're not really giving ourselves a chance to win the game… We've got to realize certain teams like Memphis, OKC, Minnesota, these are big, strong men. We've got to be ready to fight and unfortunately we were not tonight."
