Not to take anything away from OKC’s star point guard Russell Westbrook but the team has been really good in his absence. Obviously Kevin Durant having 100% control of the squad plays a big factor in their success.
Let’s also credit the more than steady play of backup point Reggie Jackson. He has started all 18 games since Westbrook went down and scored 15 points/night. His 5 assists and 2.5 turnovers per game are very good for a second string player. Throw in 4 rebounds and we have a Thunder team that has gone 13-5 with the former Boston College star running point.
