Westbrook provided 46 points (18-43 FG, 7-19 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals across 44 minutes during Oklahoma City's 96-91 loss to the Jazz in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. After putting up 39 shots in Game 5 to keep the Thunder alive, Westbrook was at it again in Game 6, although this time, his gargantuan efforts came up short. The multi-time All-Star put up some air balls late from distance, and he finished the game visibly upset after the referees failed to whistle Rudy Gobert despite him appearing to make contact with Paul George on a three-point attempt in the closing seconds. Westbrook's overall production appeared to be somewhat affected while dealing with Ricky Rubio (hamstring) in the first four games of the series, but his significant uptick over Games 5 and 6 allowed him to finish with averages of 29.3 points, 12.0 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 1.5 steals over 39.2 minutes over the six contests against the Jazz.
Westbrook supplied 45 points (17-39 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 15 rebounds and seven assists across 44 minutes during Oklahoma City's 107-99 win over the Jazz in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. With the Thunder 25 points down at the 8:34 mark of the third quarter, Westbrook stared elimination in the face and ultimately prevailed. The perennial All-Star lived up to every bit of his stellar reputation by pouring in 33 of his 45 points in the second half on a 12-for-23 tally from the field. It was a stark departure from the first two periods, when Westbrook had drained just five of 16 shots on his way to what seemed destined to be another underwhelming performance on the scoreboard. Both Westbrook's scoring and rebounding numbers served as series highs, and he'll likely be pressed into a similar level of massive usage when OKC once again attempts to stave off elimination in Game 6 on Friday.
Westbrook supplied 23 points (7-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 9-11 FT), 14 rebounds and three assists across 36 minutes during Oklahoma City's 113-96 loss to the Jazz in Game 4 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Westbrook bounced back in the scoring column after scoring 19 and 14 points in Games 2 and 3, respectively, although his shooting percentage remained under 40.0 percent for the third straight contest. The perennial All-Star notably propped up his final line in significant fashion by making a series-high 11 visits to the free-throw line. Westbrook's overall production through the first four games against Utah -- 21.3 points, 11.8 rebounds, 8.3 assists and 1.8 steals -- is highly impressive by normal standards, but still remains below what he's made his personal norm. He'll be poised to play a particularly pivotal role in Wednesday's Game 5 as the Thunder tries to stave off elimination on its home court.
Westbrook generated 14 points (5-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, nine assists and two steals across 37 minutes during Oklahoma City's 115-102 loss to the Jazz in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Westbrook's final line looked solid overall, but it belied the significant struggles he experienced with his shot for the second straight game. The perennial All-Star has drained just 12 of his 36 attempts over the last pair of contests, keeping him under the 20-point mark in both games. His rebounds and assists do remain in line with his typical levels of production, but he'll undoubtedly have to do more on offense to help the Thunder even the series at 2-2 in Monday's Game 4.
Westbrook scored 19 points (7-19 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go along with 13 assists, nine rebounds and four steals across 37 minutes during Wednesday's 102-95 loss to the Jazz. Westbrook totaled more assists than the rest of his teammates combined while also leading the way in scoring and finishing second in rebounding. He struggled from the field, but he didn't get much help on a night when the Thunder shot 40 percent as a team. Westbrook suffered a large dropoff from a much more effective Game 1 and will look to bounce back quickly as the series shifts to Salt Lake City on Saturday.
