Westbrook is resting to start the fourth. Take note: The Thunder are up five.

Westbrook typically subs around two or three minutes left in the third. He played the whole way through. Let's see if he starts the fourth.

Russell Westbrook ain't going quietly. With 14 already in the third, he's sparked a run to put the Thunder up one.

At half, the Thunder are -1 with Westbrook on and -6 with him off. So, at least to Westbrook's point, he and his team are on the same page with it now.
