Westbrook accrued 26 points (7-30 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 13 assists, nine rebounds, one steal and one block across 43 minutes Thursday in the Thunder's 138-128 overtime loss to the Lakers. Westbrook's pedestrian shooting from the free-throw line was actually an improvement from his season-long percentage (64.5%), but the 23.3 percent mark from the field on heavy volume was atrocious. At this point, those rostering Westbrook may be forced to punt the percentage categories or abandon visions of picking up major standings points in those two areas. Westbrook has at least propped up his value by averaging a triple-double for the third season in a row while boosting his steals per game (2.5) to a career-high level.
Westbrook totaled 31 points (10-21 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 11-14 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds and five steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Hawks. Westbrook's having his typically strong season, on pace to average a triple-double for a third year straight. However, his shooting has cratered from both the three-point and free-throw lines and he's shooting a horrific 23.3-percent and 63.1-percent respectively. He's hit 40-of-54 free-throws over his past eight games, so at least on that front he seems to be improving. His three-point shooting hasn't picked up as he's shooting just 18.5 percent from long range over that span.
Westbrook exploded for 24 points (11-22 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-5 FT), 24 assists, 13 rebounds, and two steals in 50 minutes during Thursday's 154-147 double overtime loss to the Spurs. Westbrook handed out a career high assist total while limiting his giveaways (three) and sinking 50 percent of his field-goal attempts. He has 13 triple-doubles through 33 appearances this season.
Westbrook scored 25 points (11-22 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 16 assists, five rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 119-117 loss to the Timberwolves. It was his worst performance on the glass since Nov. 2, but otherwise Westbrook cranked out his usual outstanding production. He's had at least a double-double in 23 of 32 games this season, putting him second among guards in that category behind the Sixers' Ben Simmons.
Westbrook turned in 31 points (13-28 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists and a steal across 37 minutes in Friday's 11-109 win over the Trail Blazers. Westbrook has been mired in a nasty cold streak with his jump shot, and the sheer volume of attempts is really the only thing saving his stat line recently. While he's put up a few decent shooting nights, he's only mustering a 37.3 field-goal percentage for the month of December, well under his career average. Friday's effort was a mild improvement, but his month, a pattern has emerged where he'll nail 50 percent of his shots and follow it up with a real clunker. He's still one of the premier point guards in the league, however - he'll be putting up monster numbers once he rights the ship.
