  • Thunder 114 Nets 112 Oklahoma City Rallies Past Brooklyn        Nets fall short on George's 3-pointer after leading by 23 points

George's effort helped Oklahoma City erase a 23-point deficit and gave the Nets their eighth consecutive loss.

On Wednesday night, Paul George was Brooklyn's iceberg scoring 25 of his 47 points in the fourth quarter, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 3.1 seconds left.

Since starting 0-4, the Thunder (15-7) have won 15 of their last 18 games and have been on full blast during their current three-game winning run, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers by 17 and the Atlanta Hawks by 15 at home before demolishing the Detroit Pistons on the road Monday night, 110-83.

George outscored the Nets by himself in the fourth quarter and his 25 points were the most by any Thunder player in any quarter since the franchise moved to Oklahoma City in the 2008-09 season.

With the Oklahoma City Thunder now on a three-game win streak and sitting at the third place in the Western Conference division, more basketball enthusiasts should arguably shift their attention over to the slept-on franchise. He finished with 15 rebounds.

"Yeah, it felt good", George said.

"I was a little too hot".

His 108th career triple-double, which came against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, surpasses basketball legend Jason Kidd.

"I just take it all in ..."

The All-Star point guard now trails Oscar Robertson (181) and Magic Johnson (138) on the all-time list. "He's a superstar in this league and as you seen tonight when he gets hot he can change the game for us".

For the Thunder, it's a fourth straight win to improve to 16-7 in a season where George and Westbrook continue to thrive next to each other.

Oklahoma City Thunder have not been in the limelight this season thus far in the stacked Western Conference. The Thunder visit the Chicago Bulls on Friday.
