Westbrook Feeling ‘a lot more comfortable’
“I just feel a little more experienced,” Westbrook said when asked how this Game 1 felt different from his playoff debut in 2010. “I feel a lot more comfortable. My teammates do a great job of getting me open and getting me to the spots where I can be effective. I’m just feeling a lot more comfortable. This is my fourth year now.”
When Westbrook made his playoff debut in his second season, he torched the Lakers and carried the Thunder to a thrilling six-game series. But when (Kobe) Bryant switched onto him, Westbrook struggled to have the same success.
Monday night, Bryant was no match.
