On Tuesday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder took down the Denver Nuggets in an impressive 66-59 victory. The Thunder were led by their star trio of Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Steven Adams, who combined for 41 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists.
The Thunder were able to get off to a strong start, leading by 10 points at halftime. The Nuggets were able to cut the lead to four in the fourth quarter, but the Thunder held strong and closed out the game.
Westbrook was the star of the night, scoring 21 points, grabbing six rebounds, and dishing out four assists. George was solid as well, finishing with 16 points, seven rebounds, and four assists. Adams was the unsung hero, finishing with 10 points, six rebounds, and three assists.
The Thunder defense was also impressive, holding the Nuggets to just 59 points. The Thunder forced the Nuggets into taking tough shots and contested every shot. They also held the Nuggets to just 38.7% shooting from the field.
The Thunder will look to keep the momentum going as they take on the Golden State Warriors on Thursday. It will be a tough test for the Thunder, but if they can play the same type of defense they did against the Nuggets, they should be able to come away with the win.
