Russell who? Victor Oladipo hits game winner for Thunder (VIDEO)


Russell Westbrook had the night off Tuesday, and when he’s sat this season the Oklahoma City Thunder have played at about the level of the Phoenix Suns.

But Wednesday night they got the win over Minnesota thanks to a Victor Oladipo game-winner. Ricky Rubio and Minnesota did a good job, showing hard on the pick, taking away the drive and forcing him into a long two, but Oladipo is shooting 50 percent this season from that area of the floor and he drained it.

That’s two tough losses in the Timberwolves last two games (they also lost to the Lakers’ on the D'Angelo Russell buzzer beater). I’m sure Tom Thibodeau is taking it all very well.
