Westbrook Scores 36; Thunder Beat Trail Blazers 101-90
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Russell Westbrook scored 36 points, and the Thunder beat the Portland Trail Blazers 101-90 on Monday night to keep their playoff hopes alive. Westbrook picked up his 16th technical at Indiana on Sunday, which would have been an automatic one-game suspension. It was rescinded on Monday morning, allowing him to play in critical game for the Thunder. Enes Kanter added 27 points and 13 rebounds for the Thunder, who would have been eliminated from the Western Conference playoff race with a loss.
