Shook Ankles: Russell Westbrook Gets Rude With Luke Ridnour
After posting a so-so outing on Christmas Day, Russell Westbrook had a blast going against Minnesota’s really small/really inexperienced/really old point guard trio, with a 28 point, 6 rebound, 6 assist performance. When you throw in the 7 turnovers, this feels like the type of line that seems to fit in with what we’ve come to expect from the Thunder point guard. As is proven true with this filthy crossover, the sky is Russell’s playground, but only when he’s able to taper his freakish athleticism down a bit will we be able to say he’s become one of the two or three most complete conductors in the game.
