Westbrook registered 33 points (11-22 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 11 assists, five rebounds and one block across 38 minutes during the Thunder's 120-108 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Friday.
After a forgettable Game 2 performance that Westbrook himself termed unacceptable, the perennial All-Star bounced back in fine fashion Friday. Westbrook's scoring total was a series high, while his assists tied his series-best Game 2 tally in that department. The veteran point guard now has two strong shooting performances over the first three games of the series, and he'll look to stay hot in Sunday's Game 4 as OKC looks to even the series at 2-2.
Westbrook amassed 14 points (5-20 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 11 assists, nine rebounds, and one steal in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 114-94 loss to the Trail Blazers.
The Thunder fell away late, eventually falling to the Trail Blazers by 20 points in Game 2 of their best of seven series. Westbrook struggled from the field, ending just 5-of-20 including 1-of-6 from beyond the arc. He is now a combined 1-of-10 from the perimeter and will certainly need to improve if the Thunder are to make this a competitive series moving forward. Game 3 is on Friday in Oklahoma City which should certainly work in the favor of Westbrook and the rest of his underperforming teammates.
Westbrook went through a full practice Monday, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
Westbrook wasn't listed on the initial injury report, though he did appear to tweak his ankle during Sunday's Game 1 loss to Portland. At this juncture, there's little reason to believe Westbrook will face any limitations when the Thunder look to even the series Tuesday night in Portland.
Westbrook racked up 24 points (8-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 10 rebounds, and 10 assists in 38 minutes during Sunday's 104-99 Game 1 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Westbrook couldn't buy a bucket from beyond the arc but still put forth a fairly efficient scoring performance while making his usual contributions in the rebounding and assist departments. The triple-double machine will more than likely remain in attack mode as he tries to help his team even the series in Tuesday's Game 2.
Westbrook scored 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT) while adding 17 assists, 11 rebounds, a steal and a block in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 127-116 win over the Bucks.
OKC had more to play for than Milwaukee in this one, and as a result Westbrook racked up his third straight triple-double and 34th of the season. The 30-year-old averaged a triple-double for the third straight season -- one of the greatest feats in NBA history -- and tied Lakers great Magic Johnson for the second-most in league history. Westbrook will get a few days to prepare for a clash with James Harden and the Rockets in the marquee matchup of the first round of the playoffs.
