Heat must contain Russell Westbrook in NBA FinalsPosted by Inside Hoops
The Miami Heat know there’s another All-Star point guard standing between them and the championship after surviving a steady threat of Rajon Rondo triple-doubles to reach the NBA finals.
Russell Westbrook poses a different kind of triple threat with his blazing speed, defensive intensity and often-deadly shooting. He brings the Oklahoma City Thunder into the finals playing some of the best basketball of his young career.
During the postseason, he’s added better decision-making to his already dangerous arsenal, cutting down on his turnovers while upping his assist totals slightly.
