Carmelo Anthony's return to face Thunder was a total flop

So far this season, he is averaging an impressive 24.1 points, 8.9 assists, and 8.3 rebounds per game.

Houston's 80-point scoring effort was the lowest for an National Basketball Association team this season.

Steven Adams added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Thunder, while Terrance Ferguson hit four 3-pointers to score 14 points.

The Thunder was actually keeping up with the Rockets from 3, each team with eight until Gerald Green canned a 3-pointer in the third quarter.

Westbrook was hurt Monday night against New Orleans.

Russell Westbrook will miss the Oklahoma City Thunder's game Thursday night against the Houston Rockets because of a sprained left ankle.

The game was the first for Carmelo Anthony in Oklahoma City since leaving the Thunder in an offseason trade, which wound up with him being bought out and eventually signing in Houston.

James Harden led the Rockets with 19 points and the Thunder had six players in double figures, including Paul George with 20. Anthony shot a awful 1-for-11 from the field, including 0-of-6 from 3-point range.

Clearly frustrated over an offensive foul call on him late in the fourth quarter, Paul seemed to execute a fake ball fake at referee Mark Ayotte, who didn't think twice of calling a technical foul on the future Hall of Famer court general.
