On a day when LeBron James could've reached 30,000 career points, the Oklahoma City Thunder enjoyed a scoring fest against the Cleveland Cavaliers en route to a 148-124 victory at Quicken Loans Arena on Saturday.

Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony finished with double-doubles. The Thunder floor general dished out 20 assists to go with 23 points. Melo scored 29 and grabbed 10 rebounds. Paul George led all scorers with 36 points, hitting five three-pointers.

The Thunder jumped out to a 43-24 lead in the first quarter and controlled the game from start to finish. James finished with 18 points—seven shy of 30,000.

After a slow start to the season, OKC's star trio has built on-court chemistry, and the team is riding a four-game win streak.

The Thunder will tip off against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
