Memphis
Oklahoma City

[OKLAHOMA CITY] — The Oklahoma City Thunder played host to the Memphis Grizzlies last night and the Thunder did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 114-102 victory. The win bumps Oklahoma City's record up to 29-22 on the season, while the loss drags Memphis's down to 30-22. Though a win's a win and Thunder fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

Leading the way in one of the finest individual performances of the season was Russell Westbrook. Westbrook's borderline-historic night of 38 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists, 0 blocks and 3 steals in 38 minutes will be remembered as one of the nights he truly displayed why he's held in such regard at the NBA level. Ask anybody, however - Westbrook included - and the most important part is that the Thunder walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Marc Gasol did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Grizzlies. Gasol's 31 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Oklahoma City's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Grizzlies, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Thunder will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Thunder will be a date with the Chicago Bulls while the visiting Grizzlies will look to bounce back in a matchup with the San Antonio Spurs.
