Oklahoma City Thunder continue winning streak over Philadelphia 76ers after Paul George’s late showing | NBA News

Paul George scored the winning points in the dying seconds to give Oklahoma City Thunder a 117-115 win against the Philadelphia 76ers.

It is the 19th consecutive game that the Thunder have beaten the 76ers, the longest active win streak between NBA teams.

But the 76ers came agonisingly close to victory themselves – with 6.9 seconds remaining they took a 115-113 lead when Jimmy Butler intercepted a pass and Steven Adams drove for a layup.

But then the Thunder’s George scored a three-pointer while being fouled by Butler, and added the free throw.

Desperately Butler tried to reply for the 76ers but this three-point effort bounced off the rim.

George shone with 31 points, six rebounds, five assists, and two steals for the Thunder.
