The Abrines Thunder begin to take off from the “Mike Tyson of basketball”

Oklahoma City Thunder star point guard Russell Westbrook contributed 27 points, six rebounds and five assists that allowed his team to win 112-99 over the devaluing Dallas Mavericks.
The victory was the gift that was made Westbrook, proclaimed as “Mike Tyson of basketball” on the day of his twenty-ninth birthday, and the Thunder got the second consecutive to get a 6-7 mark after having suffered a streak of four defeats in a row.
The forward Paul George with 37 points was in charge of leading the winning attack of the Thunder that played without two of his five starters.
Carmelo Anthony was ruled out an hour before the game started when he suffered lower back pains, while New Zealander center Steven Adams recovered from a bruise on his right calf.
Despite their absences, the attack of the Thunder in the third period achieved a run of 26-10 that was the one that broke the score in their favor.
The Spanish guard-forward Álex Abrines played 15 minutes as a substitute for the Thunder, contributing three points by scoring 1 of 2 field goals, including 1 of 1 in triples, and two rebounds.
