'I don't really care what people say' - Russell Westbrook on criticism

OKC & Portland Comes Down to an ALL-TIME Ending | April 23, 2019

"The three-point line and the range that players are showing with their three-point shooting - it's changing the way that defenses have to think". Game 7 is Saturday night in Denver.

Westbrook vowed to come back next season a better shooter, a season where he will be 31 years old. Nikola Jokic scored a season-high 40 points while finishing just two assists shy of a triple-double.

Russell Westbrook is not anxious about the critics following the Oklahoma City Thunder's elimination from the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Key storyline: Can anyone stop Damian Lillard?

Damian Lillard capped a 50-point game by sinking a long 3-pointer as time expired to give the Portland Trail Blazers a 118-115 victory over the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night and a five-game series win.

Lillard meanwhile revealed that Portland had been motivated by Oklahoma City's exuberant celebrations after their win in Game 3. He's on a roll and enters this series with a swagger that could be tought to stymie.

This singular principle applies to us all: the amount of work we all go through in the closing games we find ourselves in, because sometimes we find it significantly easier to look forward to the success and neglect the journey along the way.

Chelsea secure vital point at Man Utd but have injury worries
The Italian joined from Napoli alongside midfielder Jorginho after eventually agreeing terms with the Premier League outfit, but was forced to miss a week of pre-season due to the delays.

Later that night, the 76ers struck a deal to get Tobias Harris. Then, playing against the Oklahoma City Thunder, backup center Enes Kanter hurt his shoulder.

The Nuggets won all three games that Jokic played in against the Blazers this season and he was excellent, shooting 62.0 percent from the field while almost averaging a triple-double.

The Blazers defeated the Thunder last night with the final score of 118-115 to advance to the Western Conference semifinals where they will take on the victor between the San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets.

Kyle Lowry scored 14 points as the Raptors finished off the Magic easily, bouncing back from a Game 1 defeat to win by double-digits in three of the next four.

It's no secret Lillard and Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook don't like each other. He also failed to record an assist on 73 touches. George picked up his third foul with more than nine minutes remaining before halftime and remained on the bench until the start of the third quarter.

"Sometimes it's your turn to go through something, and when you keep fighting, and keep working through it, and stay together, there's a reward waiting for you", Lillard said after the win. The former was traded from the Indiana Pacers to the Thunder in July 2017 before re-signing with the team last offseason.
