Russell Westbrook said media are trying to pull him apart from his teammates by questioning the team’s shot selection during the Oklahoma City Thunder’s first-round series with the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies took a 2-1 series lead Thursday after an overtime victory in which Westbrook had just two assists in 39 minutes. Kevin Durant had three in 50 minutes, and the two had a second consecutive off shooting night, combining to go 17-of-53 after going a combined 23-of-56 in a Game 2 overtime loss.

“I feel like [the media] tries to pull us apart,” Westbrook said Friday. “When nobody is getting their shots, you all try to find a reason in between all of us. You try to find whose fault it is. One person didn’t lose, we all lost.”
