Sixers' Joel Embiid throws down huge dunk on Thunder's Russell Westbrook

Philadelphia's last win against Oklahoma City took place Nov. 15, 2008, during Westbrook's rookie season. The 76ers held the Spurs to an offensive rebounding percentage of 11.6 (below their season average of 23.2) and an effective field goal percentage of 0.420 (below their season average of 0.509).

Everything was going great for Oklahoma City in their contest against the Pistons.

Thunder guard Andre Roberson was wheeled off in a stretcher with 4:33 left in the third quarter after he slipped running toward the basket.

OKC came out strong.

There have been moments where the Westbrook-George duo seems to have found something, and the second half on Sunday was another one.

So, Westbrook reiterated to two more teammates who walked to him and George.

"I play the same way", Westbrook said. He becomes the 21st player ever to reach 25,000 career points. We're still in the early stages of the Sixers' ascent, so resting Embiid as much as possible - when reasonable - is a solid plan.

It started earlier for Westbrook.

When George was asked what Adams does to wear down his match-ups, George admitted he was running out of words to use. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Thunder are 3.5-point home favorites to knock off the 76ers, who opened as 4.5-point underdogs. He finished around the rim.

The Detroit Pistons' night was not as victorious, however, as they saw their tally of losses reach eight in a row after defeat to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Embiid scored 27 to go with 10 boards and two blocks.

Oklahoma City ranks fourth in fast break points per game (14.2) while Philadelphia ranks 19th (10.0). Paul George dropped 16 in the first quarter and 26 for the game. "I'm not running with him".

Embiid has made it a habit to incorporate "hidden" messages as his location on Instagram posts.

Westbrook recorded his 15th triple-double this season (31 points, 11 rebounds, 13 assists). Lack of defense, lack of bench scoring and lack of leadership are just some of the obvious trouble spots.

The question is what changed?

We can tell you that the computer has the Under winning 62 percent of simulations. James reached 30,000 points on Tuesday, becoming the first player in NBA history to register 30,000 points, 7,000 rebounds and 7,000 assists. It would have marked the first time he has played in both games of a back-to-back situation in his two-year career. They've squeaked by the Brooklyn Nets.

He and the Sixers (24-22) will face the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night at the Barclays Center to cap their four-game road trip.
