A recurring theme throughout the series has been Oklahoma City’s tendency to lose leads when (Russell) Westbrook sits in the second half.

Thunder center Steven Adams was asked about the issue, and Westbrook interrupted.

“Hold on Steven,” Westbrook said. “I don’t want nobody to try and split us up. We’re all one team. If I go to the bench and Steven’s on the floor and I’m off the floor, we’re in this together. Don’t split us up. Don’t try and split us up. Don’t try to make us go against each other or make it Russell and the rest of the guys. Russell against Houston.”
