Paul George scores 29 points with 9 rebounds for short-handed Thunder

Carmelo Anthony's night cut short due to sprained right ankle

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) status in question for Oklahoma City Thunder's game against Los Angeles Lakers

Amick reported that the Los Angeles Lakers are the biggest threat to sign with George, with the veteran forward being a California native. When the day was over, a win by their largest margin this season showed they have more to sell than cap space.

Carmelo Anthony's status is in question for the Thunder's next game in Los Angeles.

"We have a core of guys that if we all stick together and grow can be really special", Kuzma said.

They've done well developing their young players, but they won't turn a superstar down.

The Lakers were also short-handed, after a trade with Cleveland sent Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance, Jr.to the Cavaliers, that will eventually bring Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye, plus the Cavs first round pick in 2018 to the Lakers.

After a slow start, Walton got his answer.

"I don't know if whether I'm going to LA, or what I'm going to do this offseason".

George Lucas Had A Hand In Directing Solo
No matter how Solo: A Star Wars Story eventually turns out, there'll always be the nagging question of what it could have been. What she didn't reveal, though, and what we still don't know, is just how much of Solo Howard actually helmed.

The Thunder play the Lakers in Los Angeles on Thursday, and Anthony said it's too early to tell if he'll be available for that one. Steven Adams was the only other Thunder player to score in doubles figures.

George started strong with 12 points in the opening 6:52, hitting his first five shots including three 3-pointers.

However, the man himself has provided Oklahoma City with some relief, as he has stated in an interview with Sam Amick of USA Today that he is happy with the Thunder and that will play into his decision at the end of the season.

"With as hard as it was to put the ball in the basket, we kept trying to battle and fight defensively and did some good things", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.

OKC shot just 36 percent from the field and were 8-for-34 from three point land.

Paul George has been a ideal fit next to Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City's backcourt and has put together an All-Star campaign next to the league's defending MVP. Patrick Patterson, who replaced Anthony, was scoreless in 26 minutes. Ingram handled point guard duties with rookie Lonzo Ball sitting out his 11th straight game with knee soreness. I'm happy with playing with Russ, happy with playing with Melo, and this organization.
