Listen: Russell Westbrook, Celtics, Russ discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Let's go. The thunder season has gotten off to a rough start. They blew a sixteen point halftime lead an loss at home to the Celtics. Russell Westbrook only scored thirteen points and missed all seven of shots in the fourth quarter there now Owen four for the first time this since moving to okay, despite the slow start Westbrook still seems optimistic take a lesson. Okay. We'd be early in company. My guys not groom confident in myself, and my buddies to make sure that we have an opportunity to the ball game is no need to panic. Obviously. We we not starting to where we wanted to. We'll be okay. And I'll make sure that. So now, we're. Well, okay. See around, Shannon. No need to panic. No. Yes. I do believe they will turn it around. I'm not going to overreact after four game. This is only rough the second game back off these need surgery. But they're going to be what I thought they would be there will be somewhere around the six of the eight seat. I didn't have them in the top four seeds. So I'm not overly concerned. What what I've seen this far. The thing is you Russ is a volume shooter. And he's like the stock market when he's when he's bullish who that thing. Good when he's a bear agrees me. And last night. He was a grizzly and it's not going to go. Well for them when he doesn't when he doesn't play. Well, they can't win outside of Russ playing. Well is almost like LeBron when he was in Cleveland LeBron play will they lost ballgame especially last year. Now when they had carry Karekin have him off today, Kevin Lowe could somewhat have today, and they could carry the night. But then it got to the point where if you Lieb. Ron didn't get you thirty and eleven and whatever they were going to win the game. And that's kinda how this okay see team is. They got this other guy name, George George Paul Reynaud guy that thirty nine percent that guy and a twenty percent for three. We talk about the guy. Okay. It was too for ten from three last night. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. See shooting league worth thirty nine percent floor in twenty four percent for three. You're not gonna win many games like get. So, but I'm not concerned Russ's only two games back skip, they'll get better. But I didn't see them. They're going to be fighting six to eight the for that six to the eight seed. I don't think you had them. Anyhow will. Maybe you did because you love. Okay. See you love Russell Westbrook. But I have I'm more realistic to you. Russell Westbrook should've closed this deal last night. They're up sixteen in half on a very good Boston team still trying to find its way in rotation. But they're up thirteen with four fifty four left in the third quarter. And Russell shot them in the foot. It's one of his worst shooting games ever. And he is certainly capable of this because he's not a pure shooter. No he had to sort of teach himself that shot in sometimes it drops. And sometimes when it goes Southie goes way south, and so all of a sudden as you say, he's only played two games. But in the overall four games their last league field goal percentage. Three point percentage free-throw percentage. Russ was eight of sixteen from the free throw line which started struggling a little bit from the free throw line last year. He was and he just picked right up where he left off. So in the fourth quarter. He was oh for seven with three bad turnovers. And he had look after look after look down the stretch where you could win the game win the game win the game, especially forty. Five seconds left in twenty-six level. He just brick west brick. He was Russell Westbrook last night. That's know, what one of the problems that. I have with him. Skip is that when things are not going well for him. He's like a guy that the war is on. And it's overflowing. When you can stop it. If you just turn it off you like what do I do roughing just keep shooting bra you shooting shooting your team out of the game? I understand you're the best player. But after you miss two three four five but his mentality.."
