Russell Westbrook and James Harden are close. Their relationship goes back way before their Oklahoma City days, when they were teammates from 2009 to ’12. But their friendship takes a back seat when they step on the court this week. At least in Westbrook’s eyes.

“When I get on the floor, I got one friend, and that’s the basketball,” Westbrook said before the Thunder’s 118-87 loss to the Rockets in Game 1 of their Western Conference playoff series. “I’ve been like that since I was a little kid. My dad told me that when I was younger: ‘You got one friend, and your friend is Spalding. At the time maybe it was Wilson or some other s—.’ “Whatever the ball is, that’s who my friend is.”
