Westbrook produced 27 points (11-17 FG, 5-6 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and four steals in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 117-111 win over the Timberwolves. Westbrook has scored at least 20 points in every single game since Dec. 7, so he's virtually a lock to produce decent numbers every time he steps on the hardwood. One thing to note is that he's been scoring with a lot more accuracy of late, however, as the star point guard has made 53.4 percent of his field goals in his last six games. That kind of efficiency produces a huge boost if he's scoring at a high volume.
Westbrook put up 24 points (9-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes Sunday in the Rockets' 126-106 loss to the Magic. Westbrook's scoring and assist totals edged out James Harden (23 and seven) for the team lead, but the outing was still somewhat disappointing for the 31-year-old, who was rested for the front end of the back-to-back set Saturday. The Rockets' commitment to small-ball lineups has generally been yielding positive results while simultaneously bringing Westbrook's fantasy value to greater heights, but the team has hit a bit of a rough spell of late. The Rockets have now lost four consecutive games, with two of the losses coming by double figures and the other two coming against non-playoff teams in the Knicks and Hornets.
Westbrook won't play the front end of the back-to-back set Saturday against the Hornets but will suit up Sunday versus the Magic, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. Westbrook hasn't played in both parts of back-to-back sets all season, and this time around he won't play in the first game. Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore figure to see increased run Saturday with Eric Gordon (knee) also sidelined.
Westbrook notched 29 points (11-27 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-11 FT), 15 rebounds, five assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Thursday's 120-105 loss to the Clippers. One of the best rebounding guards in the league, Westbrook has notched double-digit boards in 17 games this season and routinely crashes the glass with efficiency for a player of his position. He averages 8.1 rebounds per game, but that's down from what he did in each of the past three seasons, where he averaged over 10 boards per game.
Westbrook registered 24 points (9-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one block in 37 minutes during Monday's 125-123 loss at New York. Westbrook didn't look sharp in this game, but he still extended his run of games scoring 20 or more points to 31 contests. The lack of efficiency stands out, but the star point guard has connected on 53.4 percent of his shots during his last 10 games. Based on his current form, this might have been nothing more than a bump in the road for one of the league's most dominant scorers.
