Good bounce back win at home. These next few games on the road are very win-able. Tough one might be at the Rose Garden on Sunday.

Good bounceback win. Just a real methodical beatdown of an undermanned team. Durant with another 3+ steal and 3+ block game. Russ had 23-8-7 on an efficient 7/14 shooting; and Martin got back on track with 19 points and went 4/7 from three.

He was a threat for an occasional 18/10 or 20/10 game with the Celtics. Now, on his best nights, he's a threat for 10/10.

He's never been the same player since Bynum crashed on his back in the Finals and his knee buckled

Deron lol, stop living in the past and watch some OKC games. Westbrook breaks down a defense and makes bounce/bullet passes Deron can never do nowadays.

At this point Westbrook is elite at just about every level. Not seeing too many weaknesses except his judgement is still off at times but all great floor generals have a tendency to burn up a lot of engines with that supercharger

Exactly, his only weakness is the "Westbrick" mode, but he has "Goatbrook" mode that makes up for it and destroys teams.

And people should stop acting like Nash/Rubio are Gods, they turn the ball over just as much as Westbrook a lot of times, they lack elite slashing and speed to make the most of their passing skills, they are much easier to stop than Westbrook. Westbrook utilizes his passing better than Nash/Rubio, he gets you wins and distorts defenses. A slow predictable ball handler that you know is just gonna pass isn't a threat to your defense. People see that now with Nash, who was supposed to be the saviour lol. And with CP3 actually being aggressive and destroying teams while Rondo pounds the ball for assists and losses.

Peak Nash was light years ahead of Westbrook.
