Magic Passes: Westbrook's 20 Assists Outwit Cavs Shaky Defense

Russell Westbrook and LeBron James

The rare simultaneous burst of the triple threat Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook came into a supernova to destroy the Cavs for their 4th straight victory 148 - 124.

Melo hit his season high with 29 points, while George scored 36. But what's even more jaw-dropping is Westbrook's 23 points with 20 assists.

Westbrook's magic passes are at it again. He tends to pass the ball a lot yet still scored more than enough to provide triumph for OKC. He was one board short of getting another astonishing triple-double.

Cleveland's burden became heavier and heavier. It was a game of frustrations for Cavs. LeBron James was rooting to hit 30 000 career points but was pulled out with only 7 points remaining. Love played 3 minutes due to his sickness.

What's most frustrating is that their defensive issues apparently are still left unsolved. They let OKC scored so high that they've lost with a huge gap. A team with a defensive strength normally does not allow their opponent to hit the century mark even in lost games.

Cleveland became too much of an offensive team yet they were almost outshone by OKC starters alone.

OKC totaled 121 points out of 148 with their 5 starters alone. 7 points behind and Thunder first five could have beaten Cavs' whole team score.

Cavs just do not have enough force to push forward or pull OKC back in as they could not force a single digit deficit. They reached by as close as being 12 points behind but it turned out to be LBJ's last hit of the night and OKC stretched once again by as much as 31 points.


Scores:

OKC 148 - George 36, Anthony 29, Adams 25, Westbrook 23, Roberson 8, Bench - 27

Cavs 124 - Thomas 24, James 18, Crowder 17, Smith 8, Love 0, Bench - 57
