Russell Westbrook scored 45 points on 13-of-25 shooting (5-of-7 3PTs, 14-of-16 FTs) with 11 rebounds, 11 assists and one steal in Friday’s road win over the Celtics.
Westbrook is trying to make things interesting with his No. 5 rank in 8-cat leagues this year, averaging 27.4 points with 10.7 boards, 10.8 assists and 1.3 steals. He has improved his field goal percentage to 43.1 percent with a strong push this week, but as you can see he has to work insanely hard to get to No. 5. In 9-cat leagues he is ranked No. 15. The No. 1 overall predictions aren’t going to hit this year.
