Westbrook has officially asked to come off the bench and Mann will be starting in his place. Last game, Harden took 14 shots when Westbrook wasn’t in the game with him and 3 when he was. Harden also had all 4 of his assists when Westbrook wasn’t in the game.
He covered last game and seems to be getting in better shape as time goes on. He’ll be facing his former Houston squad at home and I don’t know how he doesn’t go over here.
