It was the final seconds of the game when Russell Westbrook went for the game-winning shot. Darren Collison scored 10 of the 18 points that put the Clippers ahead of the Thunder. Westbrook was set on making the 3-pointer yet even with Serge Ibaka’s failed tip-assist, the Thunder lost to the L.A Clippers 101-99. However, had Westbrook noticed that Kevin Durant was wide-open for the 3, the outcome might have been different.
Fans and commentators across the board had something to say about the blatant lack of teamwork. Many have come to blame coach Scott Brooks. Some still blame Lil B due to his “curse” on KD from earlier this year. How did you feel about the end of the game?
KD and Westbrook can't coexist!! Two really good players that do the same things! Excellent scorers and but lack defensive intensity!!

Scott Brooks' coaching faults are reaching critical mass at this point.

Scott Brooks is a con artist. His whole coaching career is a pyramid scheme.

Every time I try to argue that coaching in the NBA is largely irrelevant, Scott Brooks pops up to mock me like one of those Whack-A-Moles.

The big question is: Did the Clippers win the game or did the Thunder give it away?

I'll say it again: The only team that can beat the Thunder is the Thunder.

KD will never flourish the way he should with the way Westbrook plays.
