Russell Westbrook has been trying to show the world that he can lead the Oklahoma City Thunder without Kevin Durant around. Thus far, people are believing him because the team is undefeated. Westbrook had another dominant performance on Wednesday. The Thunder defeated the Los Angeles Clippers by a score of 85-83, as reported by ESPN.
Oklahoma City Thunder starters
The only member of the entire Thunder roster that scored more than 10 points against the Los Angeles Clippers was Russell Westbrook. The 6-foot-4 guard ended up with 35 points. It might have been an even bigger night had he not missed all seven attempts from beyond the three point line. Westbrook also had six rebounds, five assists, and three steals.
Steven Adams did his job on the boards. The 7-foot center pulled down 11 rebounds. Adams also did a pretty good job of keeping DeAndre Jordan off of the boards. That is a pretty tough task.
The other two starting guards struggled to shoot. Victor Oladipo attempted to be the secondary scoring option for Oklahoma City, he only made three shots on 11 attempts. Andre Roberson made just one of the five shots that he took.
Domantas Sabonis continues to be the starting forward, but Thunder head coach Billy Donovan keeps his minutes low. Sabonis only played 17 minutes, but he did manage to hit two shots from the outside.
