The Thunder faced a tough task already in defending Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo Friday night. On Friday afternoon, it got a little tougher. Oklahoma City will be without Paul George against the Bucks on Friday, a team spokesman said. George will sit with left knee soreness. George is OKC’s second-leading scorer at 20.5 points per game, and the leading 3-point shooter among rotation players at 42.6 percent. Perhaps as importantly against the Bucks, the 6-foot-9 George is one of the NBA’s best wing defenders. He leads the league in steals (2.5 per game) and deflections (4.9).
