After Sunday’s win over the Pistons — arguably Westbrook’s best game of the season alongside James and Davis — he talked about his adaptability and his comfort in playing in any role the team needs him to be in. I mean, one thing about me (is) I can adapt to anything,” Westbrook said. I can play 1-5.
“It’s a good test, not just for our team, but for me to lead these guys,” Davis told Yahoo Sports.
Interestingly, Howard’s performance came after head coach Frank Vogel approached the center in the lead-up to the game and told him he wouldn’t play against Sacramento, which would’ve been the second straight game he sat out despite being healthy. I was pretty down when I got the news I wasn’t going to play, but I just told myself to stay ready,” the 35-year-old said.
