Russell Westbrook led the Rockets to a win vs. Milwaukee on Sunday, scoring 31 points with eight assists, six rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal in 38 minutes.
Prior to the game, Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said a key to the game was "to not give [Giannis Antetokounmpo] anything easy, don't foul him." The reigning MVP finished with a ridiculous 36/18/8 line, but Houston's defense stood up when it mattered most in the fourth quarter. Westbrook was terrific in halfcourt and transition, and any concerns about his conditioning can be forgotten. Aug 02 11:57 pm (EST)
