Russell Westbrook Is Still... Russell Westbrook
Despite not playing since December 25th, after suffering his second knee injury since the 2013 playoffs, Westbrook came back last night amped to play. His shooting percentage wasn’t the greatest, going 4-for-12 from the floor, but he did score 16 points in just 24 minutes of play. Seeing a player miss a step upon return after a two month absence due to injury is normal. However, we didn’t truly see that from the Oklahoma City guard last night. He was ferocious on defense, quick with the ball and made moves to finish at the basket the way fans are accustomed to seeing.
