Over the last couple of seasons, there have been a lot of stories about Russell Westbrook of the Los Angeles Clippers and his inconsistent output on the court.
For much of his time with the Los Angeles Lakers, Westbrook wasn’t reliable and could be more of a hindrance than a help.
He has gotten better since the start of the season but that doesn’t mean he necessarily strikes fear into the hearts of opponents.

That was clear to see on Thursday night as his Clippers faced off against the Golden State Warriors.
At the beginning of the game, Westbrook gained possession of the ball and remained behind the three-point line.
You would think that a few players from the Warriors would defend Westbrook so he couldn’t put up a three but that wasn’t the case.
Draymond Green, who was tasked with locking down Westbrook, was feet away and obviously not worried.
This was a painful moment for Westbrook and his fans, showing that his three-point shot is so unreliable that other teams aren’t even a tiny bit scared of it.
You can’t blame the Warriors and Green for turning a blind eye to Westbrook: he went 0-of-5 from downtown during the game.
In fact, his entire stat line was a mess: 8 points, 0 rebounds, 6 assists, and 4 turnovers on 25% from the field.
Since joining the Clippers a few weeks ago, he has been averaging 14 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 8.5 assists and starting in every game with his new squad.
Those aren’t atrocious numbers but it is important to note that the Clippers have yet to win a single game with Westbrook on the roster.NEXT: Klay Thompson Comments On Warriors Big Win Over Clippers
