Always and forever. RT @Megan Ann Wilson: Let Westbrook be Westbrook.

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook did not enjoy being asked about his perceived lack of passing following the loss to the Pelicans: es.pn/1x1BHC3

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook has played maybe his best basketball ever the last three weeks. And then he had five bad minutes: es.pn/1zaGyPu

Lang Whitaker

The best RT @Royce Young: More Westbrook: http://t.co/JyqZmXAhvX

Beto Duran

Get em Russ "@Royce Young: More Westbrook: http://t.co/D1868A1hp6"

Darnell Mayberry

More Westbrook: "It's one game, so I'm not 'bout to keep answering questions about me not passing now when we lose."

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook was rather bristly after the game: http://t.co/tnSSvK5vxd

Darnell Mayberry

Westbrook: "When we won eight in a row nobody said nothing about not passing so I don't want to hear it now."

Anthony Slater

Russell Westbrook: "When we won 8 in a row, nobody said nothing about not passing. So I don't want to hear it now."

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook's hat is the same pattern as his shirt. This is my biggest takeaway from the game tonight.

John Schuhmann

Live by the Russ... MT @Anthony Slater: OKC went scoreless in final 3:45. In that time, Westbrook was 0-for-6 w/ a turnover.

Anthony Slater

The Thunder went scoreless in the final 3:45. In that time, Russell Westbrook went 0-of-6 shooting and turned it over once.

Tom Liston

#NBA Russell Westbrook 2 for 9 in the fourth & OKC lose by only two. 6 turnovers. Pass a couple times and OKC wins. #HeroBall

Adi Joseph

Oh, I definitely forgot Beverley. Curry and Westbrook are asserting themselves on defense this year, too.

Royce Young

Westbrook misses short on a 3, as the Pelicans win 101-99. Westbrook 29-5-8, Jackson 19-6-5, Adams 12 and 10 rebounds.

Jim Eichenhofer

Big road win. Pelicans hold on after Russell Westbrook 3 try misses for 101-99 victory, NOLA's 2nd over OKC this month

Royce Young

I feel a strong disturbance in the force that this possession will end up with Russell Westbrook shooting a 3.

Mike Prada

Monty Williams really called a timeout with a 5 on 4 and Westbrook well behind the play

Jason Calmes

Great job of staying in front of Westbrook by Holiday, & this big #Pelicans lineup is doing a good job of controlling the defensive glass.

Jim Eichenhofer

What a hustle play by Jrue to strip Westbrook, leading to Anthony Davis dunk. Davis has 38 points and gave Pelicans 101-99 lead under 2:30

Jason Calmes

Nothing you can do about that. Fantastic take by Westbrook.

Royce Young

Thunder lead 81-76 after three. Westbrook 24-5-8, Jones 12 (10 in the third), Jackson 10.

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook isn't happy right now about being subbed for.

Anthony Slater

Russell Westbrook has at least 20-5-5 in 11 of the 12 games since he's been back. 22 pts, 7 asts, 5 rebs tonight midway through 3rd.

Jason Calmes

Westbrook is wreaking havoc on the #Pelicans' defense right now, and the #Thunder lead 68-67 with 5:45 left in Q3.

Royce Young

Pelicans lead the Thunder 53-48 at half. Westbrook 14 and 5 assists, Jackson 7, Adams 7 and 5 rebounds.

Anthony Slater

Halftime: Thunder down 53-48 to the Pelicans. Russell Westbrook: 14 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds. ADavis: 21 and 7

Anthony Slater

This should be an interesting jumpball: Russell Westbrook v Anthony Davis. Westbrook may be only person in world who believes he'll win.

Royce Young

Westbrook versus Anthony Davis jump ball. #LeaguePassAlert

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook spends a solid 40 percent of every game SMHing his teammates.

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook to Serge Ibaka on that failed alley-oop connection: "Jump! Come on man!"

Jason Calmes

#Thunder have a 3-point lead on the #Pelicans after Q1. Westbrook has 9 points & 5 assists, & Davis has 13 points & 7 rebounds.

Anthony Slater

Russell Westbrook's first 10 minutes: 9 points, 5 assists, 4/6 FG

Royce Young

Westbrook picks Anthony Davis in the post, then goes the length of the floor for an and-1 layup. Ridiculous, absurd, ridiculous.

Anthony Slater

No brace on Russell Westbrook's right hand tonight. First time he's been without it.

Royce Young

No protective cover for Russell Westbrook on his right hand tonight.

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans starters: PG Holiday, SG Evans, SF Babbitt, PF Davis, C Asik OKC starters: PG Westbrook, SG Roberson, SF Jones, PF Ibaka, C Adams

Gary Lee

I'm not sure why Ronnie Price is playing down to the level of the competition. Had 14 points against Westbrook, but only 3 against Collison.

Raul Barrigon

My guesses on the All-Star rosters: West: Curry, Kobe, Durant, BGriffin, ADavis - CPaul, Lillard, Harden, Aldridge, Gasol, Monta, Westbrook.

Magic Johnson

With Westbrook playing the way he has & when Durant comes back healthy, I feel OKC will have everything they need to get to the WCF.

Magic Johnson

Russell Westbrook with 31pts & 10ast to lead OKC in the win over the Lakers is the most dominant PG in the game and it showed last night.

Mico Halili

"26.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 6.9 assists, in only 30.5 minutes per game." Is Westbrook the real MVP? by @Royce Young espn.go.com/blog/okc-thund…

LeBron James

I see you Bronny! Do work. That 0 look good on you. Looking like "Russelmania" @Russell Westbrook. Cook!… instagram.com/p/w2LNgviTAU/

Alex Kennedy

Russell Westbrook has scored 314 points in 11 games since he returned on November 28. That's the most by any player since that date.

Alex Kennedy

Russell Westbrook has at least 25 points in last seven games, the longest such streak in the NBA this season and the longest of his career.

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

LAL 103 - OKC 104 Kobe falla el tiro decisivo y los Thunder d Westbrook mandan en el Staples dozz.es/0rpfv http://t.co/5U5NFBbGTc

Chris Palmer

#LOTN (runner-up): @Russell Westbrook 31 pts, 10 asts, 5 rebs, 1 TO, 9-22 FG, 13-13 FT, W

Royce Young

Westbrook and Reggie Jackson combined for 56 points and 15 assists as OKC survived a Kobe miss -- recap and notes: dailythunder.com/2014/12/down-k…

Kevin Ding

Westbrook (13 of 13 on free throws, 0 of 1 on threes) ruled this game (31 points, 10 assists) with Durant out. OKC up to 13-14.
