On fire in one half, burnt out the next: Russell Westbrook against the Portland Trail Blazers

Russell Westbrook had people whispering about a potential career night in the first half, until fatigue proved too much in the second half. It was a tale of two halves for Russell Westbrook against the Portland Trail Blazers. In the first half, he scored 26 points on 13 shots and 13 free throw attempts. In the second half, he scored 12 points on 13 shots and 3 free throw attempts. The difference went way beyond the FTA disparity. Blaming Westbrook for the Thunder's loss would be unfair. That guy scored 38 points on 26 shots, and made 15-of-16 free throws. It's impressive to do that on any...

Blazers vs. Thunder Final: Portland Overcomes Russell Westbrook's Best

Russell Westbrook played like two superstars tonight but the Blazers woke up after a slow start to earn their first victory of the season. Let's take a trip in the way-back machine to the first game of the 2013-14 season, one year ago. The Portland Trail Blazers faced the Phoenix Suns, full of hope for the bright, new season. The Blazers took the floor and promptly laid an egg, ending up on the wrong side of a 91-104 defeat. After that humbling experience Portland took off for the moon, winning 17 of their next 19 to establish themselves as a legitimate playoff team in the conference. That...
