Russell Westbrook, in his first postseason with the Rockets, made it a round further in the postseason this year. Despite that team success, as an individual, Westbrook encountered a similar result as the Rockets’ season came to a conclusion.

According to ESPN’s Marc Spears, William Rondo, Rajon’s brother, went to Damian Lillard’s playbook after a heated exchange with the former NBA MVP.

In five outings against the Lakers, Westbrook averaged 19.8 points per game and shot 40.7 percent from the field. Westbrook is under contract through the the 2022-23 season (the final year is a player option) and is set to earn $41.3 million next season based on the current cap forecast.
