Russell Westbrook scored 21 points, grabbed 10 boards and dished out 16 dimes in an easy win over the Knicks on Thursday.
He did commit seven turnovers and failed to record a trey or a steal. The turnovers were a bummer for his owners in 9-cat leagues but the more disappointing takeaway was the lack of commonly expected peripheral numbers. It’s the first game and Westbrook is still adjusting to his new crew of studs. He’s still going to be a counting categories machine this season, keeping him in a comfortable spot in fantasy’s top-7.
