im sure he has but the problem with that is Westbrook isnt a smart player. with players like that they are usually at their best when they are instinctive.. Spurs defense also isnt as good or reactionary as the Heat. you have Russ iver thinking he might be worse than what he normally is. passing on shots that he should take, forcing a pass thats not there. like the other guy said his.play is a double edge sword you have to deal with. Harden should be in the starting lineup because hes actually the better playmaker. alot of the times Brooks will have him bringing the ball up in the 4th. But i guess they need his.scoring punch off the bench. but there next move should be finding a decent scorer off the bench to allow Harden to start.
its really crazy how all 3 compliment each other so well as Westbrook takes he scoring pressure off Durant.. Harden takes playmaking pressure off Russ. another reason why they close out so well in the 4th because hats usually when all 3 are on the floor together.
