Thunder Streak Past 76ers For 8th Straight Win

Thunder Streak Past 76ers For 8th Straight Win

Still, the Thunder have won eight games in a row and will be one of the Wizards' toughest home games of the season.

That difference is huge especially in the Western Conference where each of the top teams have at least two all-stars. It was their 18th consecutive loss to the Thunder, a streak dating back to 2009 when Westbrook was a rookie.

The Thunder announced that Roberson had "a successful procedure" on Sunday to fix his ruptured left patellar tendon. "Or Oklahoma City could look to move Abrines as part of a deal for a slightly more expensive player, such as Marco Belinelli of the Atlanta Hawks". Roberson's absence is going to hurt.

Justin Anderson has been a big spark off the bench for Philadelphia over the last three games, averaging 10.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists. Both players are on separate All-Star teams, Westbrook repping Team LeBron and Embiid lacing 'em up for Steph Curry's squad, so it'll be interesting to see if we can get a Westbrook vs. Embiid one-on-one moment. The Thunder swept the season series against Philadelphia, although they needed triple-overtime in the December matchup.

Royce Young on Westbrook and the Thunder getting the last laugh versus Philadelphia: "About a second separated the shot and game clocks, and Russell Westbrook stood a step over the half-court line casually dribbling the ball as T.J. McConnell stood in front of him, halfheartedly in a surrendered defensive stance".

David Beckham launches new Major League Soccer team in Miami
The franchise rights will cost Beckham $25 million, according to multiple reports , which is well below the market rate. Today, after a years-long attempt to bring a professional soccer team to the city, it's official.

Opponent 3-point shooting might have inflated the difference Roberson makes to some extent.

With Roberson locking down the opposing team's best perimeter threat, George was unleashed as a rover, free to wreak havoc all over the floor.

George regained the league lead in steals per game.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan said it will be hard to fill the void left by one of the league's top perimeter defenders. But who takes Roberson's spot?

Terrance Ferguson got the start for the Thunder, but he had a quiet night. At 6-7, 230 pounds, Josh Huestis offers size and athleticism, though the shooting problem remains. Forward offers the most similar skill set to that of Roberson, for better or worse. He finished with a "quiet" 31, as Donovan called it, but with Westbrook egging him on, met the energy level in a burst late in the third. "It's no different than having a guy that gets 25 points a game and goes out. So real unfortunate. But one thing about Dre, man, he's tough, and he's a strong person, so he'll definitely persevere through it".
