The Minnesota Timberwolves' regular season is over. We'll have a lot of analysis of whatever that was over the coming days. Let's take a look at the finally set playoff schedule and look forward to enjoying watching basketball over the coming weeks. Welcome to the Therapy couch. Unfortunately, neither of my predictions about last night's final Minnesota Timberwolves game against the Oklahoma City Thunder came true: Russell Westbrook setting the season's single-game scoring record (only 38), and Adreian Payne winning the game on a banked-home 3-pointer from halfcourt (um...the Wolves lost...

Shoals for GQ on Westbrook: “All of which begs the question: Exactly what was Russell Westbrook playing for? Technically, the Thunder could’ve made the playoffs on the last day, but without Durant or Ibaka,
Welcome to Loud City Apr 15, 2015
You see my hat? Russell Westbrook has many jobs. "My job is to come out and play." "My job is to stay in attack mode and try and score and try to make plays happen." "My job is to make Thunder believe." "My job is to compete at a level every night that I don't think anyone else can." "My job is to do that every single night." And of course, when you have many job roles, you must wear many hats. But don't ask Russ to wear a Spurs hat. You see the hat he's wearing? While Westbrook clearly will not be wearing any San Antonio hats now or in the near future, he just might be willing to...

Grantland made this. I don’t really know why, but they did, and here it is. And while we’re here, let me share something Russell Westbrook said today at shootaround when asked if he sees
San Francisco Chronicle Apr 14, 2015
Oklahoma City’s point guard can get more triple-doubles than anyone else — his 11 lead the league and are the most by any player since the 2007-08 season. Atlanta’s Thabo Sefolosha said he is in “great pain” and blamed New York City police for causing a “significant injury” that knocked him out for the season. The backup forward sustained a fractured right lower leg and ligament damage while being arrested with teammate Pero Antic outside a Manhattan nightclub while the Hawks were in the city to face the Nets last week. Sefolosha won’t return until next season, costing the...

Berry Tramel at The Oklahoman has done the math on the NBA scoring title and it isn’t too promising for James Harden to catch Russell Westbrook. Going into the final game of the season, Westbrook is averaging 28.015 points per game and Harden is at 27.513. Tramel’s scenarios: If Westbrook plays and goes scoreless at […]

Dallas Mavericks fans probably don’t want to tip their cap to Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook considering how much damage he can do in a game, But Westbrook’s tip of the cap to Dirk Nowitzki might change that. In Monday’s …

I was pretty stunned to see many MVP ballots voting the wrong players atop the NBA. I'm here to set things straight by throwing everything into a big, fat, stinking controversial turmoil. Hooray! Follow @JaredStearne You've heard MVP debates dominating the radio waves for months, and you've seen the names Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Stephen Curry especially, splattered and slathered all over the blogosphere like the handiwork of a bad graffiti artist during his "cry for attention" phase. That's just the standard operating procedure for the NBA in April - especially when the...

Kobe Bryant will take every opportunity he can to gush about Russell Westbrook and it's pretty awesome. Kobe Bryant has never been shy about his admiration of Russell Westbrook, so he took to Twitter to send off a meme he created that poked fun at anyone poking fun at Bestrook's career-high 54 points on 43 field goal attempts: #StopIt pic.twitter.com/pPRO8BnF4P — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 13, 2015 Ah yes, Kobe defending a player for who went 21-of-43 from the field. Truth be told, it was an amazing effort from Westbrook and any time a player drops 50-plus points it's worth...

Via the NBA's official Twitter: RT:@NBAPR: NBA has rescinded OKC’s R. Westbrook’s technical assessed on April 12 at 5:57 of 4th qtr. — NBA Official (@NBAOfficial) April 13, 2015 Looks like the language wasn't considered nasty enough for Russell Westbrook to incur an official technical. We have ref Ed Malloy to thank, as he probably played a part in getting the foul taken back. Westbrook will play in tonight's game against the Blazers. Should the Thunder make the playoffs, Westbrook's technical foul count would be reset.

C.J. Miles had 30 points to counter Russell Westbrook's 54, giving Indiana a 116-104 win over Oklahoma City to pull even with Brooklyn for the 8th spot in the East. The most important win of the season (to date) for the Indiana Pacers was also one of the season's most exciting with Indiana coming up big while fighting an uphill battle against a monumental individual effort against Russell Westbrook and his Oklahoma City Thunder. The Pacers withstood 54 points from Westbrook, who on the night shot 21-43 from the floor to go along with nine rebounds and eight assists. But though Westbrook...
