Thunder's Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony remain sidelined with ankle injuries

Grizzlies vs. Thunder NBA Predictions: Is Memphis a Live Dog? 2/11/18

The Thunder tied a team record by hitting 16 3-pointers.

Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony may have missed Sunday night's contest over the Grizzlies, but even without them, the Thunder were able to walk away with a 110-92 victory.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Josh Hart and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George at the Staples Center. According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Thunder is an 8-point home favorite versus the Grizzlies, who opened as 8-point road underdogs. "I like what he brings", Lue said. "This time, without Westbrook and Anthony but with a different starting lineup and rotation pattern, Head Coach Billy Donovan helped orchestrate a 74-point first half behind a Thunder record-tying 12 made three-pointers over the opening 24 minutes". In the last 17 seconds of the third quarter, OKC took its first lead of the game and chose to hold onto it until they pulled away with a 105-94 victory. The initial struggles of this year's Thunder team and their inconsistency throughout the season will prevent them from obtaining a high seed in the Western Conference, thus hindering their playoff chances, but they have shown all year that they can compete with the best of the best. A lob from Felton for a dunk by rookie Terrance Ferguson pushed Oklahoma City's edge to 102-80. OKC started off hot, going 7-8 from 3 in the first quarter.

Anthony suffered his injury during the first quarter of the Warriors game and did not return.

Twenty-three others have represented the U.S.in worldwide competitions and captured 14 medals. Blaz Gregorc, who had a goal and an assist for Slovenia, fired shot on goal from the point.

Oklahoma City ranks fourth in fast break points per game (14.6) while Memphis ranks 25th in fast break points allowed per game (13.8).

During their last five games, the Thunder have scored an average of 106.8 points per game (0.6 above their season average) and allowed an average of 112.0 points per game (9.1 above their season average).

Patterson's 14 points were a season high in his second start of the season for the Thunder.

The Thunder is 9th in ESPN's latest batch of power rankings: "Not only is Paul George leading the league in steals, he also leads in deflections by a wide margin". Oklahoma City is still trying to figure out who will fill the void left by G Andre Roberson, who recently had season-ending left patellar tendon surgery. He was a possible starter before the Thunder traded for Anthony right before the preseason.
