Pistons drop seventh straight, 121-108 to Thunder

Oklahoma City Thunder's Paul George says Russell Westbrook is making his free-agent decision easier and easier

If their defensive ace does miss the rest of the season, they should look for a replacement at the trade deadline.

Russell Westbrook is the best player on the Thunder team from a fantasy basketball perspective, with 53.75 fantasy points per game. Roberson will undergo further testing once he returns to Oklahoma City.

Anthony said the Thunder will sometimes rely on Roberson to guard some of the opponent's top offensive threats and that he's a "smart defender" whom they could rely on nightly defensively.

On Saturday, Thunder swing man Andre Roberson reportedly ruptured a patellar tendon, likely ending his campaign as well.

He's shooting the ball at a solid clip (although his three-point percentage could use some work), but more impressively he's been a nightmare for opposing teams on defence. Until the third quarter.

The 76ers, last in the National Basketball Association in turnovers with 17.3 per game, had a season-low 10 against the Spurs. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 70.4 percent from the free throw line. George is second in the league in that category.

George's favorite play of the night. We project both rounds. The youngster was tasked with keeping up with the MVP on one end and still managed to glide through Oklahoma City's defense to open the offense for himself and others.

He said it repeatedly, specifically to Paul George, who stood in front of him and just to the side of the scorer's table during a stoppage.

Roberson was examined by trainers for several minutes before being put on a stretcher - sitting - and taken off the court.

Australian centre Thon Maker played 19 minutes for three points and five rebounds while Boomers guard Matthew Dellavedova contributed seven points, two rebounds and four assists.

The 76ers rank first in rebounds per game (47.4) while the Thunder rank seventh (44.8). Roberson didn't try to get up and waved off his teammates. "You're not going to have one person go out and replace 25 points". "He was unbelievable. Their starting lineup just dominated us".
