OKLAHOMA CITY —
New York pushed its lead to 12 before Oklahoma City went on a run and closed to a point at 84-83. Westbrook paced the spurt with a couple of steals, several assists and 14 points.
Anthony responded with eight of the Knicks’ next 11 points, hitting two 3-pointers.
The Thunder trailed 96-89 heading into the fourth quarter.
“Not a lot of defense out there on our part,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “The thing that was concerning tonight, we just gave up too many offensive rebounds. When we did make them miss, they got 19 offensive rebounds and 23 put back points. That’s not good.”
