Russell Westbrook bounced back on Tuesday, dropping 30 points (13-of-24 FG, 2-of-2 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in 35 minutes vs. the Lakers.
Westbrook certainly redeemed his dreadful Game 2 performance tonight but it still wasn't enough to get the win. The Rockets offense seems to struggle when he's in control of the offense rather than Harden and his inability to knock down the three ball consistently is hurting them. He did go 2-of-4 tonight from beyond the arc but he's not a threat that the Lakers are worried about from out there. He'll need to play even better when the Rockets matchup against Los Angeles again on Thursday.
