• Russell Westbrook
    G, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Russell Westbrook put up 15 rebounds and eight assists but also scored 13 points on 5-for-20 shooting in Thursday's 95-101 loss to the Celtics.

    The Thunder remain winless on the year and Westbrook said after the game that the team's ugly fourth quarter falls on him. He's certainly not limited by any lingering effects from his knee injury, and owners had to know that he'd be a wrecking ball on the percentages. Westbrook hit only 3-of-5 from the charity stripe to add to the misery. He'll be a triple-double threat every night but his unsightly shooting lines will make it tough for him to return clear early-round value. Dennis Schroder played 24 minutes and put up 10-3-6 with a steal and a three, and perhaps more two-PG lineups can help Westbrook ease into things a bit.
