Russell Westbrook: 'The Way I Played Was Unacceptable'

  • Game 2 Preview Thunder vs Blazers

The loss extended the Thunder's road playoff losing streak to 11 with their last win in an away arena coming back in Game 1 of the 2016 Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors at the Oracle Arena.

The Thunder shot their way out of Game 1 with a 5-of-33 (15.2%) performance from behind the arc - the lowest 3-point field goal percentage in National Basketball Association playoff game history (minimum 30 attempts).

But as time wore on, Portland's backcourt duo took over and the Thunder had no answers in a 114-94 Trail Blazers win to secure a 2-0 series lead.

But the Blazers' mentality won't change.

George was nursing a sore right shoulder and was considered day-to-day for Sunday's game but he started. "Now we can just kind of move on from that and stay focused on this series". I'm gonna be better. We could try to score points and do all that stuff, but if we don't defend them ... we don't have much of a chance. The Portland Trail Blazers are averaging 109 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 96.5 points on 40.2 percent shooting. Moe Harkless' first-quarter defense on Paul George did not go unnoticed.

"We knew it was going to be a fight all night long".

Game 2 was very different.

Zach Collins, who got into foul trouble on Sunday, was frustrated with his own play with unnecessary fouls, but he also knows as a team they can crack down on certain miscues.

Juventus shares slump after Champions League defeat
Juventus heaved a huge sigh of relief when Neres broke through and Van De Beek set up Ziyech inside the penalty area. Ronaldo has also scored in his last five Champions League games against Ajax , for a total of eight goals.

Despite dismal numbers and the 0-2 series deficit, Westbrook was still positive "I'm going to be better, so, I'm not anxious one bit".

It's the second straight game that Lillard and McCollum got the best of George and Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, a bad omen for the Thunder as they face a critical Game 3 at home on Friday.

The Portland Trail Blazers can all but put this series to bed with a victory here to go up 3-0. "I think that's where everybody's head is at. It's even more important against a team that loves to be out in transition". Lillard's buzzer-beater to close the third quarter capped a dominant, decisive stanza that saw the Blazers outscore the Thunder 37-21 to put the once-close game well out of reach.

"I turned the ball over a lot..."

Coach Stotts differentiates turnovers. "And we'll be all right". "That team is going to go as far as (Westbrook) and Paul George". He was a main topic of conversation after Blazers' practice Monday.

"Let it fly", he later said, when asked what the celebration meant. "We've gotta make sure we are looking for those opportunities because they're big wings and all three of those guys are good post players when they have a mismatch, so that's definitely something that we should be looking to take advantage of when it presents itself", Lillard said.

"Generally it's the team that loses that tends to make more adjustments than the team that wins", Stotts added. "I had one of our assistants view the film as if they were Oklahoma City and what they might possible do", Stotts said.
