Durant: Westbrook Won't Shoot 3-for-15 Again

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook didn't have his best night Tuesday.

In Game 1 of this Western Conference finals, Westbrook shot just 3-for-15 from the field but was able to score 20 points thanks to a 14-of-18 performance from the foul line. Westbrook missed several shots near the basket as he drove into the lane.

So far this postseason, Westbrook is shooting a dismal 39.5 percent from the field.

"I don't think Westbrook will go 3-for-15 again," Kevin Durant said. "You can quote me on that. I think James Harden will give us a bigger push the next game; he played well still. Guys like Daequan [Cook], he will come out and help us out as well. I have a lot of faith in my teammates and I believe in them and no matter if they miss 10 shots in a row, I'm still going to pass them the ball, still going to have trust in them. That's what it's all about. We got to lean on each other. One guy can't win a series, two guys can't win a series. So we got to stick together."
