Westbrook had 17 points (4-14 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 15 rebounds, 11 assists and two steals in 38 minutes during Thursday's 110-107 victory over Sacramento. Westbrook had a poor shooting night but managed to compose himself enough to hit the game-winning three-pointer. He also recorded his second consecutive triple-double, extending his lead over the rest of the league. Westbrook is not having the MVP type season he had last year but is beginning to assert his authority over the team, piling up the stats as the team makes a push for a top-four seed in the Western Conference.
Westbrook exploded for 23 points (6-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 11-12 FT), 15 assists, 13 rebounds, two blocks, and one steal in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 121-114 win over the Grizzlies. Westbrook was a man possessed, recording his 17th triple-double of the season while sinking double-digit free throws for the second time in 2017-18. More often than not he remains unstoppable, and Westbrook will now have a week off (besides the All-Star game) before facing the lowly Kings next Thursday.
Westbrook scored 21 points (7-19 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding 12 assists, seven rebounds and two steals in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 120-112 loss to the Cavaliers. After missing two games with a minor ankle sprain, Westbrook's shooting was a little ragged but otherwise he was his usual extremely productive self. He's scored at least 20 points in nine of his last 11 games, averaging 28.1 points, 12.2 assists, 7.8 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.1 three-pointers over that stretch, and with the Thunder healthy once again Westbrook could be gearing up to go on another triple-double tear as the team tries to climb the standings in the tough Western Conference.
Westbrook (ankle) will play Tuesday against Cleveland, Royce Young of ESPN reports. A sprained left ankle kept Westbrook out of each of the last two games, but after going through a limited practice Monday, the reigning MVP will return to action as the Thunder play on the first night of a back-to-back heading into the All-Star break. Westbrook will start at his usual point guard spot, meaning Raymond Felton will head back to the bench. Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports that Westbrook will not be on a minutes limit.
Westbrook (ankle) went through morning shootaround and will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup against the Cavaliers, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports. Westbrook also participated in Monday's non-contact practice, so things appear to be trending in the right direction for the guard, though he should still be considered questionable. If he's ultimately held out or limited, expect the likes of Raymond Felton and Alex Abrines to see extra ballhandling duties.
