Oklahoma City Thunder Notes, Quotes 2009-03-05
--G Russell Westbrook has played himself into Rookie of the Year consideration, and his first career triple-double this week illustrates his progress.

"He's learning how to play a position, and he's doing a great job," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "He's improving month-to-month. I don't look at Russell game-to-game. I look at him in bigger chunks."

Westbrook averaged 20.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 5.9 assists in February, claiming rookie of the month honors.

"I think I'm a lot better," he said. "I see the game a lot slower. I'm going to try to continue to get better and help my team win games."

--Thunder players are determined not to go into games as the sacrificial lamb. The team is on a season-high three-game winning streak with Wednesday's victory over Washington.

"I think we've got to prove something every night, honestly," guard Russell Westbrook said.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "That was a good team win. I thought a lot of guys did a great job of competing. We played tough tonight. A lot of guys dove on the floor for loose balls, got key rebounds and made winning plays down the stretch." -- Coach Scott Brooks, after all five starters scored in double-figures in Wednesday's win over Washington.
