OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Russell Westbrook connected with his new teammates immediately.

Westbrook scored 17 points in his 28th triple-double of the season, and the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 110-93 on Friday night.

It was the first game in a Thunder uniform for Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott, acquired Thursday in a trade with the Chicago Bulls. Gibson scored 12 points and McDermott added eight, even though they arrived Thursday night and weren't even available for shootaround on Friday.

Westbrook said the newcomers handled the hectic situation well.

"Great, man. Like pros," Westbrook said. "They came in and competed. Obviously, they don't know many plays and many sets, but it was all right. They did a great job with spacing and knowing how to play the game."
