Russell Westbrook has gone back-to-back games with shooting issues. Thursday night against the San Antonio Spurs, Westbrook air-balled twice near the end of the game. Westbrook went 12-for-32 against the Nuggets and again couldn’t hit the key shot at the end. While Westbrook went 4-for-9 from the 3-point line, the Thunder set a franchise record of 20 buckets beyond the arc against the Nuggets.
