Westbrook drains game-winner to defeat Hawks

The Jazz (15-18) discussed the game but didn't watch film.

"We put ourselves in position to (win) the basketball game with the last shot and it went down", Westbrook said after the game.

But the Utah Jazz will see the Oklahoma City Thunder Saturday night for the fourth time this season and the third time in two nights when the two Northwest Division rivals tip off at Vivint Arena in a 6 p.m. game.

It capped a terrific performance from the eight-time All-Star as he finished with 30 points, seven rebounds and 15 assists on a hugely efficient 12-of-17 from the field. Through 32 games, the Thunder have been inconsistent, but are now 9-3 in December.

Anthony has attempted ten or more three-pointers in a game three times this season, with Friday's outing being the first in which he's done so since taking ten in a loss to Denver on November 9. He hoisted 12 3-pointers, scored 24 points and operated nearly exclusively as a catch-and-shoot threat on the wing.

"Our team has come to play", said coach Quin Snyder after the game. "This is the type of offense that we're going to be running, and (I'm) accepting that and working on that role", Anthony added. Neither did the third quarter, a usual struggle point for OKC.

Atlanta scored 11 straight points to cut the Thunder lead to 74-70 midway through the third quarter. "Russ is our leader. We feel good down the stretch that we're going to make the right plays and we're going to get a basket", forward Paul George (17 points, 3 steals) said. Conversely, he's shooting below 40 percent from the field on all shots that required between two and six dribbles to set up.

"We had to live with those shots they were making", Anthony noted.

Ilyasova knocked down both free throws to tie the game.

But in the end, Westbrook had the wake-up call that put the Hawks to bed.

"It's going to be a special game for us, the way we lost in OKC", the former Thunder starter said.

"We knew we could kind of mess them up with the play that we had and cause some confusion", George explained. Utah will host this time and they're expecting star rookie Donovan Mitchell to be back on the floor. We just have to continue to fight. "Hopefully we've got Donovan back, and we'll be able to play with Donovan and Rodney [Hood], which will give us a little more offense". We stuck with our defense.
