Research Notes

  • In 27 minutes, Serge Ibaka finished with 24 points on 10-of-14 (71%) shooting from the floor, his third-best scoring output of the season. However, it was his defensive impact that left a mark on the game, where he contested 8 shots on Wednesday, holding the Knicks scoreless (0-of-8) on those shots.

  • Russell Westbrook had 10 assists on Wednesday en route to his 7th-career triple double. Westbrook connected with Kevin Durant 4 times for a total of 10 points. Westbrook has assisted Durant 78 times this season, 44.8% of his total assists.

  • J.R. Smith shot 8-of-21 on Wednesday, including 5-of-13 on two-point shots. Smith shot from an average distance of 17.1 feet, which has been a rough spot for him this season. Entering Christmas Day's game, Smith was shooting 23.6% on such shots this season. For his career Smith has shot 38% on midrange jumpers (10-19 feet).

  • If Russell Westbrook remains on the bench for the rest of this game, he will become the 3rd guard in the last 10 years to register a triple-double with fewer than 30 minutes played, joining Stephen Curry (Nov. 2013 at 76ers) and Steve Nash (March 2005 vs 76ers).

  • Russell Westbrook is the 5th player to record a triple-double on Christmas Day in NBA history.
