Westbrook in line for 75 point game for Thunder

I cannot see into the future (my Dad could but I did not get the gift) but I can use my educated guess on predictions which I am going to do.  Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder will push the envelope this season and will get a career high of at least seventy-five (75) points in a game.  His lack of converting the mid-range to short jumper in Friday night’s game in the Peak against the Phoenix Suns kept Westbrook from getting to the sixty point mark or more as he went 17 of 44 from the field. He also missed some free throws that kept his total this night to 51.

 

Westbrook is dynamic with this current Thunder team as the lack of significant scoring from his team-mates is bothersome.  OKC has won the first two games on the schedule against two of the worst teams in the league and any good thoughts that this current team is anywhere near a solid point producing group is wishful thinking.  With that, Westbrook is going to have one of his better shooting nights in the near future and this super-star will light it up with a big time performance, not in the fifty point range, but more in the seventy point range.  Think not?  If Westbrook has made five more shots (that were makeable), including hitting his free throws, his fifty-one Friday night could have easily been a sixty point plus game, or more. 

 

Do not cut Westbrook short. He is an all-out performer and he could put together not one 20 point quarter like he did against the Suns (23), but two.  You can figure it out. Russell Westbrook is going to light it up Kobe style.  Could happen tonight against the Los Aneles Lakers.
