Westbrook's triple-double leads Thunder past Spurs, Warriors dominate Heat

Without Kawhi Leonard, Aldridge has been a machine for the Spurs, averaging 23.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.2 blocks over 33.2 minutes per game this season. Vucevic had 34 points.

The San Antonio Spurs chose to sit some of their starters against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.

Oklahoma City (10-12) were in desperate need of a victory, and Westbrook recorded his seventh triple-double of the season by scoring 22 points with 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

With key players missing Dejounte Murray stood up, top-scored for the Spurs with 17 points while Davis Betans scored 16 off the bench.

Anderson was helped off the court and to the Spurs locker room by teammates LaMarcus Aldridge and Manu Ginobili.

The San Antonio Spurs said Anderson, 24, has a left medial knee sprain. Anthony scored just nine points, while George added eight points. Chris Paul had 21 points for the Rockets, who have won 13 of 14 overall. Rookie point guard Lonzo Ball struggled again, shooting 0-for-4 and finishing with two points and three assists.

Michael Beasley, who replaced the injured Kristaps Porzingis in the starting lineup, led the Knicks with 21 points. Rivers' final 3-pointer gave L.A. a 92-91 lead with 6:54 to play before Butler scored nine in a row to send the Clippers to their third straight loss.
