National Basketball Association games Tuesday, scores, highlights: Westbrook's triple-double fuels Thunder

Thunder beat depleted Spurs

Westbrook gets triple-double against Jazz

Paul George added 21 points while Steven Adams scored 20 points, his third consecutive game with 19 or more.

Adams, 24, is averaging 22.0 points and 8.3 rebounds over the Thunder's three-game winning streak. "We stuck together through adversity and came out and got it done in the fourth".

"For me, personally, it's just about doing something different, seeing where the team really needs me on a night-to-night basis", Anthony said Sunday. The Jazz were sinking shots and playing aggressive defense as they built up a 17-point lead against the Thunder and appeared to be on their way to their seventh straight win of the season. The Thunder then hit enough free throws to complete the comeback for their third straight win.

Donovan Mitchell led Utah with 31 points, while Joe Ingles added 16. A driving layup by Alec Burks put the Jazz up 72-55 as the Thunder continued to misfire on open shots.

After not scoring in the third to that point, Westbrook knocked down a 3-pointer, then scored eight more points before the end of the quarter to bring OKC within 12 at 80-68.

Booker, who had scored 46 points on Monday and 38 points on Saturday, was helped away at the end of the fourth quarter after bagging 19 points.

Thunder PG Russell Westbrook blocked his 200th career shot, becoming the only player in National Basketball Association history with 200 blocks, 5,000 assists and 15,000 points in his first 700 career games. "He gave them a lot of energy and points".

Westbrook led all scorers with 34 points.

Austria Constitutional Court strikes down law banning same-sex marriage
A marriage between women and men needs protection as only these partnerships can create children, he said. The center-left Social Democrats, who lead the outgoing government, are in favor.

Down the stretch against the Jazz, though, the Thunder looked for Anthony, as he scored eight of his 14 in the final 5½ minutes.

In Tuesday's other game, the Washington Wizards (13-11) defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 106-92 after a dazzling 51-point display from Bradley Beal. Roberson's one of the best defenders in the league.

Oklahoma City outrebounded the Jazz 23-13 in the fourth quarter. One point for Steve, one point for Paul. "Russell Westbrook turned it up defensively, and that's tough", Snyder said.

After a dreadfully slow start, Oklahoma City (11-12) have now won three successive games - all against playoff contenders.

"We are turning things around", Roberson said. "Teams are going to make runs". "Everybody gets a chance to touch the ball, you don't necessarily have to work so hard and it's fun".

"I don't know how serious, or when we'll be able to evaluate", Suns interim coach Jay Triano said.

"We took our time and executed our play", Anthony said afterward. That's the way we played the first half.
