Video: Nets’ Jared Dudley knew the outcome even before Paul George’s game-winner for Thunder
Even before Paul George rose up for the 3-pointer, Jared Dudley turned away upon seeing that he was wide-open. Check out the clip below as posted by the House of Highlights.
Jared Dudley, a decent shooter himself, knew that Paul George’s shot would casually swish the net given that wide open look. Besides, the Thunder star was sizzling hot from the field at that point.
The Thunder were down by as much as 20 points in the fourth quarter. Led by George, the Thunder drained shot after shot as the Nets simply watched their lead go down the drain.
Paul George himself finished with a season-high 47 points. He also snagged 15 rebounds and four assists. He was 15-of-27 from the field and 6-of-13 from 3-point distance. Teammate Russell Westbrook had another monster triple-double with 21 points, 17 assists, and 15 rebounds.
The win brings the Thunder’s record to 16-7 and OKC is a four-game winning streak. At this point, they are looking like the playoff team they ought to be.
Early in the season, when they lost their first four games, some doubted the Thunder’s chances, even positing that it’s time for a coaching change. Yet here they are now, winning games and performing in the clutch. Things are looking good for the Thunder.
