Horford comes up clutch

Al Horford entered the fourth quarter with a mere seven points, but he came up big when it mattered. Horford came into the game with 7:21 left and his team down five. Horford and Kyrie Irving both had 13 points in the fourth quarter to lead the team. Horford went 5-of-5 from the field and 3-of-3 from behind the 3-point line.

Westbrook Struggles

Russell Westbrook is known as the walking triple double, but Friday, he was held in check. Westbrook went 7-of-20 and accounted for half of his team’s turnovers with six.

Carmelo Anthony, who was supposed to provide big-time offensive threat to the Thunder, was not on his game. Anthony went 3-of-17 from the field and 0-of-5 from behind the arc. The team struggled, as it made only 37 percent of its three point shots, but Anthony certainly did not help its cause.
