New York
Oklahoma City

[OKLAHOMA CITY] — The Oklahoma City Thunder played host to the New York Knicks last night and the Thunder did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 116-105 victory. The win bumps Oklahoma City's record up to 32-25 on the season, while the loss drags New York's down to 23-34. 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, 14 rebounds, 12 assists, 1 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, Derrick Rose did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Knicks. Rose's 25 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

From a personal standpoint, Carmelo Anthony made his presence felt from beyond the arc, toying with defenders all night long and connecting on an impressive 6 bombs. Putting a stop to any NBA calibre talent is no easy task, but even more so when they're red-hot from beyond three-point range.

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 Knicks, 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 Los Angeles Lakers while the visiting Knicks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
