What the mavs kept doing was letting westbrook dribble the ball and deny everyone else. And then the guy on westbrook, it was marion for a chunk in the second half, would play it safe and almost dare westbrook to shoot the midrange jumper.

Westbrook can be a really hot headed dumb player.

the entire quarter? If anything he could have given the bench guys a break. Starters barely play an entire quarter of time.

Westbrook really wasn't playing that bad, 7-15 is pretty good. Brooks kept him out because the bench were on a roll, he didnt need to upset that.

I hope they keep him on the bench until he realize that basketball isn't all about dribbling and nba is not an and1 street ball competition.


Ignorant post. Most of his dribbling is waiting on KD because a vast majority of his minutes the only scorers on the floor are him and KD. Harden doesn't play a lot with Westbrook. He was 7/15 tonight btw. Seriously, the ignorance of his game is astounding. You're basically have 2 games to complain about of the last 90.

He played like crap at the end of the 3rd. Kept turning the ball over and not passing the ball to Durant. When Maynor was out there he stopped turning the ball over for the Thunder and passed the ball to Durant. Pretty simple.

Westbrook will be cool with it since they won. He always says he only cares about winning.

Dude he improved from game 1. I have no doubt in my mind that he's gonna be even better in game 3. The bench was killin it so he prob feels slighted but I'm sure he's happy they won.

Didnt see the game, but I can see why. Harden is actually their best playmaker.

Actually offensively there is nothing Harden can't do. He can get out in the open floor and finish, he can drive and finish in traffic, shoot 3's, drive and kick etc.

Outstanding player.

Exactly. Im positive if westbrook was in there, he goes into hero mode and take ill-advised shots and commits bad TOs.

He was 7 for 15. Rose would kill to shoot that good of a percentage
