George guides short-handed Thunder previous Grizzlies


The Oklahoma City Thunder have been without Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony for each of the last two games with ankle injuries. "Their official status for Tuesday's game against the remodeled Cleveland Cavaliers is unknown, with an update expected after practice on Monday".

In their absence, the Thunder struggled offensively Friday in a blowout loss to the Lakers, but Paul George led the way Sunday with 33 points and eight assists.

Who We Like: The Grizzlies are winless at the betting window in their last six trips to Oklahoma City and are just 2-5 against the number in their last five games versus the Thunder overall.

Michael Sykes (SB Nation) on Thunder fans and the "We Want Paul!" chant: "The Lakers have always been connected to Paul George in free agency this summer and Lakers fans joined in on the pursuit with a "We want Paul" chant in the Staples Center on Thursday night".

The Grizzlies and the Thunder face off again on Wednesday night at FedEx Forum.

Historic immigration debate in flux
Trump has made it clear that he will not sign legislation that doesn't include money for the wall and limit family migration. Democrats don't have a lot of leverage in a deal on dreamers, so it's uncertain where that debate goes in the coming weeks.

Ramos: Madrid were thinking of PSG by half
Neymar is also backed by many football pundits as the successor of Ballon D'or holder Cristiano Ronaldo who recently turned 33. Boosted by Neymar's world-record transfer past year , PSG has scored a record 25 goals in the group stage this season.

Sky extends Premier League rights with cost saving deal
Scudamore said the new deal was testament to the football produced by the 20 Premier League clubs. The broadcaster will therefore show 32 live matches per season on Saturdays at 12.30pm.

Bench firepower - The Thunder finally got some much-needed production off their bench in the absence of Westbrook and Anthony. As a team, the Thunder shot 44 percent from the field and 16 of 37 from the three-point line as they made it look easy after dominating the first half by 75-54. "They gave him an ovation and a "We love Paul" chant as he shot free throws".

The Thunder average 18.9 points off turnovers per game, which ranks first in the league. Now, the Cavs have four new players.

But using Abrines against the Grizzlies, a team which had missed lead guard Tyreke Evans for the games preceding Sunday's, wasn't just about the starters. Steven Adams went for 25 points (on 12-of-13 shooting!) with 10 rebounds in that win over the Cavs last month. They never looked back. James is also dishing out almost 9 assists per game. We've worked together. Where I got the most heat and truth was I played a couple of years of high school basketball in Oklahoma and my ex-teammates were sending me OKC police tweets and all of that kind of stuff, I favorited the tweet about a couple of weeks ago.

Who Public Bettors Like: Oklahoma City. "I like what he brings", Lue said. "I think that spot, it could be different". The final games before the All Star Break, and we see two teams with two of the best players in the league.

Will the Thunder make it a season sweep, or can the new-look Cavs continue to roll? They absolutely thrashed the Boston Celtics 121-99 on Paul Pierce's jersey retirement night.
