Woeful Game 5 performance
Westbrook provided decent value with his rebounding and assist figures, but the performance was below the standards of a player of his caliber -- especially in an elimination game. Westbrook missed several games in the playoffs due to injury and never looked completely comfortable after returning to action. He ends his playoff run averaging a mere 17.9 points per game.

Scores 30 points in playoff exit
Harden did what he could to keep the Rockets alive, but he was unable to turn things around on his own. Harden scored at least 25 points in four of five games against the Lakers, and he exits the playoffs averaging 29.6 points per game.

Struggles badly against Lakers
Gordon had a performance to forget in Game 5 -- he was coming off five straight games with 10 or more points but was unable to extend it further. The veteran sharpshooter struggled with his threes at times during the playoffs, but he went 16-of-38 (42.1 percent) in the series against the Lakers. That was a sizable improvement considering he made just 31.7 percent of his threes during the regular season.
