Westbrook An Assist Shy of Triple-Double vs Mavs
Russell Westbrook is always angry on a basketball court. But about an hour and a half before Game 5, Mark Cuban actually gave him a reason to be. Cuban plainly said Westbrook is a star, but not a superstar, pointing to his teammate Kevin Durant as the only superstar in Oklahoma City. If his plan was to unnerve Westbrook, to try and get him to play too hard, too motivated, too angry, well … it didn’t work.
As the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled by the Dallas Mavericks 118-104 to advance in five games, Westbrook piled up 36 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists in 38 minutes. Whatever the definition of superstar is, Westbrook certainly appeared to fit it.
