“We let them off the hook,” said Russell Westbrook after Saturday’s loss to the Utah Jazz. “We just weren’t ready to play.”
Despite not being “ready to play” Westbrook scored a game-high 37 points including a career-high 20 in the 4th quarter to go with 8 rebounds and 6 assists. But he also turned the ball over 9 times which was 2 less than the entire Utah team had.
“We have to do a better job, especially myself, of taking care of the basketball.”
