NBA teams are getting back on track after the All-Star break. There are playoff pushes in progress for many squads, some of which were on the winning side. Among those teams were the Oklahoma City Thunder, Charlotte Hornets, and Detroit Pistons.

1

Paul George - Oklahoma City Thunder

There are plenty of reasons to say PG13 was top player on Friday night. He scored 45 points, grabbed 15 rebounds, and gave out eight assists in an overtime win. George also hit the game-winning shot, a thing of beauty where he maneuvered through two Jazz defenders, and put up a shot high over Rudy Gobert.

2

Russell Westbrook - Oklahoma City Thunder

Also chipping for the Thunder's OT win on Friday was Russell Westbrook. He didn't get the triple-double, but he and George were the first teammates to score 40-plus points each this season.
