After a sloppy first half (6 turnovers) in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday night, Westbrook protected the ball over the final 24 minutes and came an assist shy of a triple-double in OKC’s 95-91 road win over the San Antonio Spurs.
In 39 minutes, Westbrook finished with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists and his 3-point play in the final seconds clinched the victory.
