Russell Westbrook picked up where he left off last season with his 80th career triple-double, scoring 21 points with 10 rebounds and 16 assists. Paul George hit 28 with 6 3-pointers to lead OKC, with Anthony adding 22 and Steven Adams 12 with five steals. The Knicks were led by Kristaps Porzingis with 31 to lead all scorers, and former Thunder center Enes Kanter added 10 as the only two New York scorers in double digits.
