David Locke: CORRECTED Over the past two years when Russell Westbrook and Rudy Gobert have been on the floor Russell Westbrook is shooting 25 of 68 (37%) on 2 points shots and 13 of 29 (45%) on three point shots via Twitter Lockedonsports

Unless George find his shot and Westbrook got an herculean serie, no way OKC win this one

People sleeping on the Jazz despite their season seems weird to me. Utah's defense from 1 to 5 is top notch

Utah in 6

I think Jazz can do it. Thunder will be heavy favorites tho.

Also, I'm predicting one 80ish - 80ish game.

Very slow, very defensively oriented

at least from 2 to 5. They have the Matador manning the one. The Jazz can't shoot either. It's their Achilles heel.

Watching NBA TV today and they are talking about OKC vs Jazz matchup and a question came up, who do you trust more Westbrook or Donovan Mitchell

Might seem like a dumb question to the casual fan but sadly this is a serious question. Westbrook turns himself into retard mode in the 4th quarter of playoff games. Its so bad that the Mitchell Westbrook question is a serious question.....

Honestly I am taking Mitchell. Westbrook has put up some really pathetic performances in his last 8 playoff games....... Dude just goes braindead in crunchtime

Westbroook or Rubio would have been a better question

Team FG% Rank:

Utah = 13

OKC = 18

Ricky does have a lot of trouble with Westbrook, he can hold his own if not outduel most other elite guards but this could be a problem for them.

Did you really just try to counter a problem with shooting with a no context stat that is just FG percentage? Lmao.

The Jazz have two guys that shoot a high % from 3. 4 if you count Thabo and Neto who won't be playing. Any coach with a clue will pack the paint and let the Jazz fire away from everywhere else. The playoffs are a different animal. I realize you don't know that since Ricky has never been close to the playoffs before!

I don't know, I don't follow the Jazz. I'm just saying your argument is beyond retarded. FG% includes shots at the rim, FG% includes shots between 3 and 10 feet. Are you drunk? Are you actually taking the piss?
