Russell Westbrook is going to put up monster numbers this season.
As the season is approaching coach Billy Donovan gave Westbrook a little longer run Sunday night — 30 minutes — and he dropped 26 points (on 21 shots) and 1o assists on the Timberwolves in a 112-94 Thunder win. In the first quarter he was blowing by defenders, getting the and-1, and never looked back. Steven Adams added 20 points and 10 rebounds in the game.
Westbrook is going to put MVP-caliber numbers this season, but will the Thunder be good enough to get him into serious consideration for the award? It’s going to be an interesting season.
