Simply put, the Boston Celtics had no answer on how to stop Russell Westbrook. In Friday night's 117-112 loss to Oklahoma City, Westbrook scored 45 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds - his 14th triple double of the season.

Isaiah Thomas scored 34 points and dished out 10 assists while Al Horford scored 23 but down the stretch Westbrook simply took over.

The loss snapped the C's four game winning streak and with a 17-13 record Boston is tied with Charlotte for the third spot in the Eastern Conference.

Next up for the C's, a Christmas Day game vs the NY Knicks.

NOTE: The Celtics vs Knicks game can be heard live of Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket with coverage starting at 11:30am.
