Westbrook is the engine on offense and also the first line of defense when opponents enter the half-court. In essence, he sets the tone for the Thunder each night with his energy. With tenacity and intensity, Westbrook hounds the opposing ball-handler and disrupts the timing of opposing offenses by shaking point guards’ rhythm and preventing them from initiating the offense. On the other end of the floor, Westbrook is a floor general who leads the team in assists, when he averaged 7.4 per game this season, while also averaging a career-high in rebounds. By working through pick-and-rolls on defense and executing them properly on the offensive end, Westbrook is in attack mode at all times, and his relentlessness and tireless effort is a key component of his and the team’s success.
