The first half of the new Big Three era is in the books on OKC, and while a bit disjointed, talent was showcased. Westbrook has 12-5-6, George has 17 and Anthony has 15 as the Thunder lead the Knicks 53-42. Balance is an issue, though, as Westbrook, George and Anthony accounted for 44 points and took 35 of OKC's 44 total shots.

OKC's offense continued its trend from the preseason of lacking a real flow, but Paul George still dropped 13, because he's very good. Carmelo Anthony had 4 on 1-6 shooting, Westbrook with 5 and 2 assists as the Thunder lead the Knicks 27-24.

On the big board pregame it just flashed "Welcome Back Enes Kanter and Doug McDermott." That's a first for former OKC players making their return. The team doesn't do tribute videos, but did a little extra for fan favorite Kanter.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Kind of a playoff-like feel in the arena in OKC tonight. They've got shirts on the seats, lots of media in the building. Got it all, except for the whole two good teams part.
