NBA Preseason Day 9: OKC Big 3 clinch close game; Lakers win without Lonzo Ball; Cavs lose again
Melbourne United 85-86 Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder are stocked with superstars in Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Carmelo Anthony but the team had an unlikely hero on Sunday night. Playing against Melbourne United of the NBL (Australia), the Thunder two clutch blocks from Josh Huestis to clinch the game.
While the Thunder needed some defensive heroics from a relatively unknown player, the offense came from the known threats in George and Anthony.
Oklahoma City is 2-1 through their three preseason games and is slated for their last one against the Nuggets a couple of days later at home.
