Thursday night Russell Westbrook has done the same thing he has for the last two rounds of the playoffs on an elimination game, wore all black. The Golden State Warriors had others plans and were able to hold off the Oklahoma City Thunder from advancing to the NBA finals.
The series now shifts back to Oklahoma City for game six, where the Thunder will hope to end it. Steph Curry “superstared” Thursday night, scoring 31 points along with 5 steals. After the game, a reporter from ESPN asked Durant about Steph being an underrated defender, although the question was directed at KD, Russ’ reaction said a lot.
So if the question is can Steph guard me. Russ’ response is clearly NO.
