Full Highlights: Westbrook Scores Career High 58 In a Loss to the Blazers

It’s never a good sign when one of your team’s players scores a career high of 58 points and you still manage to lose the game. The Thunder managed to do just that in their 126-121 loss to their divisional rival the Trail Blazers.

That exact circumstance occurred last night as the Trail Blazers handed the Thunder their fourth-straight loss. Despite the Thunder’s (well, Russell Westbrook’s) incredible offensive outburst, the defense was well below par, giving up double-digit scoring to seven different Blazers.

Russell Westbrook ended the game with 58 points, three rebounds, nine assists, and three steals. Victor Oladipo and Enes Kanter were the only other players in double digits, with 16 points and 11 points respectively. Steven Adams made just one of one field goal attempts and two of his five free throws for a total of four points.

Allen Crabbe led the way for the Blazers with 23 points off of the Portland bench with 23, including hitting five-of-seven from deep. Damian Lillard scored 22 points, adding eight assists and three boards. Jusuf Nurkic scored 17 points, hitting the game-deciding shot.

The Thunder fall to 35-29, while the Blazers improve to 27-35. The Thunder square off against the San Antonio Spurs tomorrow evening in Oklahoma City.
