OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Russell Westbrook just missed a triple-double, and the Thunder beat the New Orleans Pelicans 121-95 on Thursday night, a day after Thunder assistant and former Pelicans head coach Monty Williams’ wife died.

Ingrid Williams was involved in a car crash Tuesday night in Oklahoma City and died Wednesday. A moment of silence was observed for her before the game. Monty Williams coached the Pelicans last season before coming to Oklahoma City to help new coach Billy Donovan.
