Thunder coach Billy Donovan said Russell Westbrook wore down in the fourth quarter on Wednesday night. The Rockets had seven different players guard him according to ESPN Stats and Information. The Rockets’ two best defenders were Trevor Ariza and Pat Beverley in which Westbrook went 0-4 against them. “He did all he could do to try and keep them in the game (with) his aggression,” Beverley said. “(We) put a lot of pressure, tried showing him bodies and I think we did that tonight.”
