Westbrook leads Thunder past Jazz, Beal scores 51 points

Thunder C Steven Adams made his first seven shots from the field.

Steven Adams has continued his hot run of recent form with a 20-point haul for Oklahoma City Thunder in their 100-94 National Basketball Association win over Utah Jazz.

The Jazz had another terrific performance from Mitchell, who has been on fire lately, as he finished with a game-high 31 points on 11-of-22 shooting, including 5 of 12 from 3-point range and four assists and five steals. "It should be one point for Steven and one point for Carmelo". Paul George is one of the best defenders in the league.

Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal torched the Portland Trail Blazers for 51 points on 21-of-37 shooting, recording the most points ever scored at the Moda Center for a single game. He's catching it in the lane, he's making floaters, and if he doesn't have a floater, he's making extra passes. George and Donovan spoke after Sunday's game about Anthony's sacrifice, with Anthony saying he's willing to do whatever it is the team needs from him.

"Steven's not doing anything different from maybe he's done in the past".

After that slow start, Booker made 15 of his last 21 shots to finish with 46 points in the Suns' 115-101 win over the Sixers. Barely a quarter of the way into their season of sharing the ball more, the Toronto Raptors are having success.

Adams finished with 20 points and nine rebounds, including six on the offensive glass. That's the way we played the first half. "We found something that was working, stayed with it and made them make the adjustment".

"The reason why Steven is doing what he's going is because of Carmelo Anthony and Paul George", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. But the message was loud and clear: The Thunder play at their best when they take advantage of the space provided by their stars, rather than forcing the issue.

"I think people have it really backwards", Donovan said after the game, per ESPN.com's Royce Young. "I have great respect for every guy on this team and their ability offensively, but there are times where you just have to pull back on some things. We learned our lesson, and we know that we have to continue to fight, and we did that tonight". Even later in the clock, it's going to come back.

"We ran out of steam a little bit emotionally", Snyder said.

When Westbrook re-entered the game at the 7:30 mark, the lead was down to six and he immediately hit a pull-up jumper from 15 feet.

Westbrook had his seventh triple-double of the season, finishing with 34 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds.

"Russ had a win-at-all-cost attitude", George said.

It was one of two critical turnovers for Mitchell down the stretch. "Russell Westbrook turned it up defensively, and that's tough", Snyder said. "That's the most important part". We are sacrificing everything we got.

But with Utah seemingly poised for victory, the Thunder exploded in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Jazz 32-14 to win.
