OKLAHOMA CITY —
Oklahoma City is 3-3 without Westbrook in the lineup. It’s coming off a loss to Memphis and will play Game 3 Saturday in Memphis. He said his team has proven how tough it is since his injury and still have enough talent to win a championship this season.
Yet, it’s still painful for Westbrook to not be in the fire with his team, battling every night. It’s one of the most difficult situations he has ever had to deal with, but he said that won’t stop him from being a leader.
“It just hurts not to help,” Westbrook said. “I think it hurts me not to help, not to be able to go out there and help my team. Even though I’m out, I still have a voice and I can help my team. Still find a way where I can communicate things to guys. Maybe they don’t listen, maybe they do. But I still have a point to where I can use my voice and try to find a way where I can help my team.”
