From the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater:
Russell Westbrook on Steph Curry pic.twitter.com/ggMMxIzK5H— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) May 16, 2016
He's a shooter. He's not nothing I haven't seen. Him, Lillard, guys like that can shoot the basketball from four or five feet behind the three. You got to do a little, different job. Just be physical.
Not to get all sensationalist — this is a fairly innocuous comment from a guy not exactly known for effusive praise of his opponents — but it feels like an early opening salvo of intentional bulletin board material. Westbrook could easily have sidestepped the need to shine Curry on; instead, we got action!
This is going to be a phenomenal series of basketball, but it also looks like it's going to be a phenomenal series of quotes.H/t Matt Moore (twitter and article).
