Russell Westbrook is targeting 30-34 minutes of playing time in Game 1 of the Rockets-Lakers series on Friday.
Westbrook's figure was 30 for the Rockets' last contest on Wednesday, and he must be feeling half-decent if that number is continuing to increase. If the Rockets stand any chance against the Lakers they'll need Westbrook to rediscover the form he displayed while leading the Rockets before the stoppage in play due to COVID-19. Nothing is ever simple with Westbrook, but he will be giving it his all should continue to gradually shake off the rust in this series.
