Adjustments aren’t for Russell Westbrook
Think (Russell) Westbrook is apologizing for that? Think again.
”I’m not making no adjustments,” Westbrook said. ”Regardless of what anybody says or regardless of what you guys say about how I play, it doesn’t matter. You know, I’m going to play my game regardless of what happens. I’m going to go out and give 110 percent, and try to find a way to help us win the game.”
When Westbrook takes 25 shots in a game – what he’s averaging in this series – the Thunder are 7-7 this season, including playoffs. When he takes less than 25, the Thunder are 53-16.
That stat isn’t necessarily one that the Thunder are concerned about. They just say that when Westbrook is producing, they’re better, plain and simple.
