Nick Gallo (okcthunder.com) recaps last night's win over the Bucks: "The war was at the rim all night".

Thunder 118, Bucks 112: Oklahoma City's defense, George prove too much to handle (read here): Velazquez also recapped the Bucks' defeat to the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday night.

Russell Westbrook scored 13 points on 5-of-20 shooting in the Thunder's win.

Pascal Siakam converted a three-point play with 3:56 remaining to break a 108-108 tie as the Raptors erased a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit. For the Bucks, time was running out as they trailed by single-digits.

"I've got a smaller guy on me", George said. "We have a couple more home games coming up so we have to take care of the crib and see if we can get on a winning streak".

The Thunder are at the Orlando Magic on Tuesday. He has 16 triple-doubles this season and 120 in his career.

"(George) has been playing unbelievable, obviously, all year long and has done a great job of being consistent on a night-in, night-out basis and making big shots for us, like tonight", Westbrook told NBA.com after the win over Milwaukee.

While he is averaging a triple-double - 21.6 points, 10.8 rebounds, 10.7 assists per game - George leads the team in scoring at 27.1.

Touching on his competitive desire, as well as his relationship with his teammates in light of Saturday afternoon's report that he's desiring a move elsewhere, Maker cited wanting to stay ready for his opportunity while reiterating his love for the city of Milwaukee, the Bucks organization, and the fans, to Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Thunder (31-18) pushed their winning streak to five games and snapped the Bucks' six-game winning streak.

The game came down to the final possession, with Bulls guard Zach LaVine's three-point attempt over Cedi Osman bouncing off the rim at the buzzer.

With just over a minute to go, George received the ball from Jerami Grant and drove toward the basket where he was met by Antetokounmpo and managed to throw the dunk down over the 6-foot-11 forward. Jerami Grant added 16 points, helping the Thunder knock off the team with the NBA's best record.
