If the Thunder had a guy who could put up 13 assists nightly that would be wonderful.

I didn't think anyone had that bad of a game. I thought Westbrook played fine for the most part. Sorry sports media, there isn't always someone to blame for everything....

um no.

westrook is the reason why this team is so dam scary. he puts a ton of pressure on the defense. you cant load up on durant when westbrook is in the game.

a non scoring but passing point guard would not work instead of westbrook. rose is the perfect combination of the two. because he would feed durant but also score

Who cares if they can't double Durant? Westbrook is taking like 30 shots a game and the only way Durant is getting the ball is off an offensive rebound. . Man Westbrook put so much pressure on the Heat while putting OKC in a giant hole that even KD can't bail them out of.

Magic is my favorite player of all time. But if he said that...He's trippin'. Not saying westbrook played great, but worst finals game as a PG ever. EVER!!! Come'on man!!!

yes, that's why many sports journalist and media have killed Westbrook (not new by the way, goes back to last playoffs too) for chucking up shots and not even looking for Durant during stretches of the game right?

i'm not even talking about the Skip Bayless guys now. But positive guys, respected guys, Magic, Broussard, Wilbon, JA Adande.

It's clear as day Westbrook's shoot-first ways is hurting OKC, not necessarily because Westbrook is a bad player, but because WHEN WESTBROOK SHOOTS, IT LEAVES OUT THE GREATEST SCORER IN THE LEAGUE.

You ISH kiddies keep focusing on the box score and think Westbrook had a great game though. You really think Magic and a bunch of other guys would go kill Westbrook like that if there wasn't some truth to it? What do they have to gain to hate on Westbrook? The dude is FREEZING OUT Durant for stretches of the game, for god's sake.

Because he's not a PG that's not his game. His entire life he's been about driving to the rim and finishing/taking that pullup jumper off the screen 1st and then seeing if he can set up his teamates if he can't get his own shot off.

Honestly i would have tried to trade him for like a Monta Ellis type and start Harden at point.

If you give any NBA fan and ask, who is the worst point guard, without saying their name, it'll be the Heat. GTFO with that.

Westbrook is attacking. Sometimes he does take questionable decisions and should give Durant the ball a bit more, but he is still putting pressure on the Heat defense when he drives. He almost had a triple double again.

heats point guard ain't part of the "big 3"

Exactly. He didn't even have a bad game, eventually those shots are gonna drop. Watching the game he missed a couple of easy layups and chippies. I'd rather have a guy play aggressive and keep the defense on his heels than play passive. Imo he just needs to calm down with the quick jumpers. Rondo showed how to attack the Heat. And considering Westbrooks jumper is better he just needs to calm down.
