(To Or Not To) Blame Russell Westbrook

(To Or Not To) Blame Russell Westbrook

By Kevin Bertalotto.  March 9th, 2018.

Don’t just blame Russell Westbrook.

During the Houston Rockets Vs the Oklahoma City Thunder game a few days ago on TNT, they showed us this stat that OKC is 14-2 when Westbrook takes less than 17 shots and 26-27 when he shoots more than 17 shots. This has caused fans to make the claim that losing record is his fault. We’re going to take a look at the 27 losses OKC has had when Russ takes 17+ shots and see if he really is to blame.
