- LaMarcus Aldridge set a career-high in points in a game by scoring 56 points. This broke his previous career high of 45 points.
- Russell Westbrook set a career high in assists in a game by dishing out 12 on the game. He was able to dominate as the Thunder’s primary ball-handler, completing yet another triple-double.
- Jerami Grant scored 25 points and grabbed 12 boards. His scoring was a career high for the Thunder’s starting power forward.
- Terrance Ferguson made a career-high seven three-pointers in the game.
- Aldridge also broke Tony Parker’s record by scoring 56 points, making Aldridge the highest individual scoring performance in over two decades for the Spurs.

We’ll get to repeat this all over again as the two teams will face off against each other next in Oklahoma City. Thankfully, they’ll both get a day off in between allowing them to rest and prepare for the exciting rematch.
