Three-Pointers and Westbrook Triple Double Lead Thunder Over Kings

With ankle sprain Steven Adams returns to Thunder lineup versus Kings

Russell Westbrook hit 7-of-19 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, recording his 20th triple-double of the season and the 99th of his National Basketball Association career in Monday's win over the Kings.

Steven Adams is getting banged from pillar to post as the Oklahoma City Thunder look to secure their spot in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

The Thunder held off several late rallies from the Kings to improve to 40-29 on the season.

Adams sprained his ankle and did not return to the Thunder's last game on Saturday, but after a day to rest it looks like he will play on Monday. He suffered the injury in the third quarter while falling to the floor after tangling with a pair of Kings players.

Because of that, Adams' status would likely remain up in the air right until the team-list deadline. He should be in the starting lineup, but if for some reason he isn't, we'll update if necessary.

Lead exposure causes one in three cardiovascular deaths
Lanphear analyzed earlier U.S. government research from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). They were not, however, able to factor out the possible impact of exposure to arsenic or air pollution.

Paul George and Carmelo Anthony each scored 21 points on the night, while newly-acquired Corey Brewer added 16 points.

The Kings were led by 19 points from Bogdan Bogdanovic and 15 apiece by Justin Jackson and Garrett Temple.

In a low scoring first half, the Thunder led 46-40 at halftime, and maintained the lead in the second half, but couldn't pull away from the Kings, who have been eliminated from playoff contention.

As a result, the side have jumped into the fourth seed in the Western Conference. But they are just one loss ahead of the Denver Nuggets and San Antonio Spurs who now sit outside the post-season cutoff at 37-30.
