Oklahoma’s striker trio this year, Westbrook, George and Anthony were the stars of the evening in the first game of the new season.
Thunderers easily dealt with Carmelo’s former team New York and recorded the first season win with 105-84.
Russell Westbrook, last year’s MVP, started the same way he ended last season with a triple-double performance. He scored 21 points, 16 assists and 10 rebounds.
The most effective on the pitch was Paul George, who scored 28 points. Carmelo Anthony scored 22 points in the first game against his former team.
It is obvious that the three stars communicate well on the field. Therefore they are expected to be among the candidates for the championship title this season.
It was also expected that the best player for New York was Kristaps Porzingis with 31 points and 12 rebounds.
