Not only did his team misplaced the activity but the 32-yr-outdated superstar struggled independently as he scored just 8 factors in 35 minutes of perform. Russ designed just 4 out of 13 two-ideas and skipped all of his four 3-stage shots.
This is of no concern for LeBron James who is self-assured that Westbrook will get again to his normal self as the time progresses.

â€œI informed him â€˜Donâ€™t be so tricky on you, it is just one sport.â€™ I realize.. we all competitors and we all experience like sh*t when we do not enjoy nicely or engage in as a result of our skill. So I entirely comprehend that as very well. But I just donâ€™w want him to be so difficult on himself. That was the one particular matter that with any luck , get to him.
â€œLike I reported, you go residence, heâ€™s going to see 3 infants that he has. They may be asleep but they will place a smile on his encounter. You received a wonderful wife, loved ones. So at the conclude of the day you go property and you genuinely like â€˜Okay, all proper that was not that lousy. Itâ€™s truly not that lousy.â€™
â€œBut we do look ahead to finding back again in the film, obtaining again on the floor on Thursday. See methods we can get improved as a team, as individuals. And then finding back again on the ground on Friday vs . a further rough exam, a further tough team in Phoenix Suns.â€
