After Steph Curry put up 53 points on Saturday, many expected Westbrook to respond with a monster game. Well, Westbrook was on his way to having a monster triple double against the Nuggets on Sunday but sat out the 4th quarter since it was a blowout.
The final line for Westbrook was 15 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists and 3 steals in just 25 minutes. He also made 7 of 14 shots while Nuggets rookie point Emmanuel Mudiay only made 3 of 14.
Westbrook also had the dunk of the night when he threw down a putback dunk over Danilo Gallinari – who also only made 3 of 13 shots in the 24 point loss.
