March 8, 2019
Game 64 Recap - KAT, Wolves bite Thunder, OKC loses 131-120
In Paul George's first game back from shoulder injury, he looked like it.  PG-13 might need a few games to get back into rhythm and tonight was exhibit A.  Russell Westbrook's 38 points couldn't keep pace with Karl Anthony Towns (41 points of his own) as the Thunder fall on the road to the Timberwolves.  This drops OKC to fourth place in the standings behind (pukes) Houston and slightly ahead of Portland due to the tie-breaker. Matty Mulls catches you up on all the action from tonight's loss.
