Thunder's Roberson carted off with leg injury


Early reports suspect the defensive specialist has a ruptured patellar tendon- which means he is in danger of missing the remainder of the season. "Everyone's been able to see that since he's kinda come back to us and what he's been able to do defensively". "It can be tough as an offensive player to really try to attack". The Thunder are 7-0 when George scores at least 30 points and 11-4 when he scores at least 25.

Russell Westbrook led the Thunder with forty-six points in their last game against the Wizards. His leg bent during an awkward landing.

"Him one on one in the open court like that", Anthony said, "I'll put my money on him every time". He went 19-of-29 from the field, for a 65.5% field goal percentage; 7/10 from the line, 1/3 from three-point range.

Anthony said it was "1,000 percent" hard to return "to a competitive mindset after seeing one of your guys go down like that". Oklahoma City out-rebounded Philadelphia.

Tobias Harris and Anthony Tolliver each scored 20 points for the Pistons.

LeBron James flirted with yet another triple-double in a 121-104 win over the reeling Pistons.

Paul George is also playing some of the best basketball of his career right now.


Adams, on being resilient without Roberson: "I don't know". We all believe in each other and believe we can win any game on any night.

Billy Donovan, coach of the Thunder, acknowledged that the team will struggle to replace Roberson's hustle and defensive impact.

Roberson was making his 39th start of the season and is averaging 5.0 points and 4.7 rebounds.

Van Gundy said his team didn't get back on defense fast enough many times, didn't do a good enough job on the boards (24 second-chance points for the Thunder) and didn't take care of the ball well enough (16 turnovers).

Roberson had to be stretchered off the court during Saturday's matchup against the Pistons and initial fears have now been confirmed, as Roberson's injury will cost him the rest of 2017-18 campaign.

Roberson finished with five points and five rebounds in 22 minutes against Detroit.
