Despite his extravagant performance, Westbrook also missed an NBA post-season record 14 shots in the 4th quarter. But hey, without him OKC would be the be the Orlando Magic of the West, and no one wants that.
When asked about his stats after the game, Westbrook delivered an honest response.
“I don’t give a fuck about the line. We lost.”
Game 3 tomorrow airs Friday night at 9:30 pm.
