Russell Westbrook takes blame for Game 6 loss, citing turnover woes

Russell Westbrook was the worst player on the court in the team’s 104-100 loss to the Thunder, and at least he’s acknowledging it.

Westbrook looked sluggish and out of sorts in his first game back from injury, turning the ball over on what was essentially the team’s final possession, trailing by two points late in the game.

He scored 17 points of 8-of-15 shooting, but his seven turnovers killed the Rockets, and even he admitted it.

It is that simple. He needs to find a way to flip the switch and get back in a groove, or the Rockets could be in trouble in Game 7, especially given how Chris Paul is playing.
