Russell Westbrook - Is he Kevin Durant's date from Heaven or Hell?

Didn't organize this Chirpstory like my others. May do that later, but I wanted to get it into the public domain ASAP. It's currently done in chronological order. Read More

Westbrook & Durant must get on the same page if they are going to have a chance at beating Memphis.
Chris Ballard @SI_ChrisBallard
@ScottCacciola Indeed. Memphis and Dallas seemingly only two teams that have figured out you go to best one-on-one player at the end
@Gibby620
Westbrook has taken more shots than Durant in 5 out of the Thunder's 8 playoff games
J.A. Adande @jadande
Memphis 66, OKC 33 in Last 2 quarters + OT period of this series
Mike Prada. I have spoken @MikePradaSBN
Ultimately, OKC's only response is to make mad dashes to the rim and hope for foul calls.
@SebastianPruiti
Westbrook/Durant PNP with Cook in the corner...like that...
Mike Prada. I have spoken @MikePradaSBN
Kind of stunned Durant isn't taking charge more offensively.
Royce Young @royceyoung
You know what I think might be a good idea right about now? For Russell Westbrook to hog the ball and score some dang points for OKC.
Mike Prada. I have spoken @MikePradaSBN
Russell Westbrook being aggressive is good for the Thunder. Huh. Who knew? Oh wait, we all should have.
@SebastianPruiti
That's smart by Durant...Allen gets into you, run into him and create contact...don't shy away from it...
Royce Young @royceyoung
Maybe now people are starting to understand the psyche of Russ. Sometimes OKC needs him so badly. It's just hard for him to separate when.
Mike Prada. I have spoken @MikePradaSBN
No, no, Westbrook. You have to be disciplined enough to turn that down
Mike Prada. I have spoken @MikePradaSBN
Nice run, OKC, but until Durant gets into this game, I fear it's hollow
Royce Young @royceyoung
To be down just four at the half is a complete miracle. And because of Russell Westbrook. He's got 14, KD 10 and Cook 8 off the bench.
Kevin Pelton @kpelton
I stand by my assessment that Russell Westbrook is the world's only volume finisher.
Not Bill Walton @NotBillWalton
Kevin Durant is breathtaking, but does he have the edge to become a champion? He seems like someone I want to invite over for kombucha tea.
Mike Prada. I have spoken @MikePradaSBN
Durant get pushed three feet backwards on a wing ISO. Someone needs to work with him on getting stronger off the dribble
Mike Prada. I have spoken @MikePradaSBN
All this said, how many single-doubles and down screens has OKC run this half? Probably not enough.
Royce Young @royceyoung
Shane Battier is officially my least favorite player in the league for the next five days. I can't stand the way he plays Durant.
@SebastianPruiti
@dailythunder That's how you have to play him though...the only way you can stop him is be physical with him...
@SebastianPruiti
@dailythunder Durant isn't being physical back the right way though...open handed shoves will get called no matter how hard they are...
@SebastianPruiti
@dailythunder he needs to use his body, push off with his shoulders and his side, leaning in then breaking away, that stuff wont get called

Decided to update story after Westbrook was benched for the entire 4th quarter on 5/19/11 in Game 2 of Western Conference finals vs. Dallas. People felt Brooks had to put Westbrook back into the game given his stature. I don't feel that way & quoted the g
