Thunder G Roberson expected to miss rest of season

Russell Westbrook shines as the Thunder beat Washington

Bradley Beal scores 41 but Washington Wizards lose 121-112

He was taken to the locker room and examined by a Spurs team doctor.

On Saturday, Thunder swing man Andre Roberson reportedly ruptured a patellar tendon, likely ending his campaign as well.

Neither team is the same as it was on November 24, when the Pistons won at Oklahoma City 99-98.

"Obviously, we're frustrated as a team, just like we were frustrated last game when we lost", Harris said.

Roberson was hurt with 4:33 left in the third quarter after he slipped running toward the basket during the Thunder's 121-108 win over the Pistons.

The 76ers are hot as well, having won five of six and nine of their last 11.

The 76ers' average margin of victory in their last five games has been 12.0, up from 1.7 for the season. Tied at 68 at the third quarter's 4:26 marker and with officials reviewing a potential Steven Adams foul (which was eventually ruled a technical), the Thunder were struggling to hold.

It was the latest step for a young team that has struggled at times to maintain big leads.

George hit a 3-pointer at the first-half buzzer to trim Philadelphia's lead to 58-57. "He was unbelievable. Their starting lineup just dominated us".

The battle on the glass is sure to be fascinating and will undoubtedly get physical at times between the two.

In his past three games, he's averaging 13 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists off the bench.

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said that trend must continue for his team to remain successful. So when I come back, it's my fault now, which, life isn't fair, but that's not fair, bro. The Warriors fell 92-88 at Boston on November 16 in which they squandered a 17-point lead. So you can not turn it over.

Without Roberson, it'll likely be rookie Terrance Ferguson or second-year guard Alex Abrines getting more minutes.

George did what he does best and thrived on both ends of the floor, tallying four steals while defending Philadelphia's perimeter threats and still providing an offensive spark alongside Westbrook. He is now one of three active players with at least 25,000 points, joining LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki.
