Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-03-28
Russell Westbrook has already played in about twice as many games at last year, when the point guard led UCLA to the Final Four. The idea that Westbrook has hit the "rookie wall," based on his production this month, was met with resistance in Thunder circles.

Westbrook is playing two fewer minutes per game this month than in February, but his shooting percentage is up slightly to 39 percent even with a recent slump.

"With Russell and shooting, it's going to get better," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "He has good form. He's going to have to pick his spots. And this summer is going to be a big summer for all of our guys to get better. I like what he's doing. He's doing other things."

The dark-horse Rookie of the Year candidate continues to fill up the assist and rebounding categories on the stat sheet when he's not scoring.

"I'm better off getting my teammates involved, rebounding and doing other things," Westbrook said. "You miss some, you make some. I've just got to keep being aggressive, keep taking shots."

RAPTORS 112, THUNDER 96: Oklahoma City scored the first five points Friday night in its only trip north of the border this season, but that's about all that went well. The Thunder (20-52) quickly fell behind after that and were routed at Toronto.

Oklahoma City shot 42 percent, with none of the starters making at least half their shots. Nick Collison was the most productive member of the Thunder, scoring 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting off the bench. Kevin Durant added 18 points.

Chris Bosh and Shawn Marion each had point-rebound double-doubles, as the Raptors won their third straight game for only the third time this season. The Thunder franchise has lost its last two games to Toronto.
