OKC standout pulls into Chi-Town

OKC standout pulls into Chi-Town

Fresh off his 17th triple-double of the campaign, Russell Westbrook takes his absurd statistical show on the road tonight. So what are Chicago’s chances of thwarting the Oklahoma City star?

The two clubs clash in the Windy City at 8 p.m. ET. Online sports book Bovada.lv gives Fred Holberg’s crew odds of -115 to handle its business at the United Center. Conversely, the Thunder represent -105 underdogs.

On Saturday, Westbrook totaled 32 points, 17 rebounds and 11 assists in OKC’s 121-106 victory over Denver. What’s more, the five-time All-Star canned seven treys. Frequently maligned for his inconsistent perimeter shot, Westbrook has actually converted 15 of his past 23 attempts from beyond the arc.

Even so, look for the UCLA product to attack the rim against a Chicago bunch whose interior options inspire little confidence. Among Holberg’s regulars, only center Robin Lopez averages at least seven boards per game. The Bulls have also allowed 100-plus points on seven occasions since Dec. 21.

Ultimately, Thunder coach Billy Donovan needs others to step up around his most valuable player. At the moment, though, Westbrook’s individual brilliance has the team climbing the ladder in the rugged Western Conference. We don’t foresee the offensive bonanza slowing down shortly, either.
