|Russell Westbrook: Approaches triple-double in OT win|
Westbrook recorded 33 points (15-27 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds, eight assists and three steals across 40 minutes in Tuesday's 125-121 overtime win over the Spurs.
The Scoop: After a trio of rough games to begin his tenure with the Lakers, Westbrook looked more comfortable Tuesday while handling a 33.3 percent usage rate sans LeBron James (ankle). In addition to displaying more efficient shooting after converting on only 34.9 percent of his field goals through the first three games, Westbrook also trimmed his turnovers after averaging 5.7 heading into Tuesday. Assuming James isn't headed for a long-term absence, however, Westbrook looks destined to have his season-long numbers take a decent-sized hit with James and Anthony Davis representing bigger priorities for Los Angeles.
