Breakdown Russell Westbrook

    Overview

  • Experts rank this player at 1st among PG's. Based on his stats from the past 30 days, he is currently ranked 1st with 3351 total points (52.36 avg).
  • Wow, would you look at that. The experts got it right on the money.
  • His average points in the past two weeks have increased by 16.6 PPG. That is great, but how long can he perform at this level? If you don't have the confidence he can keep it up, then trade him for a sure thing.
  • Performance Stats

  • Shooting 44.21% from the field this month.
  • Shooting 34.78% from beyond the arc this month. Not too good.
  • He is ranked 59th this month in assist to turnover ratio with 2.44.
  • His assists per game numbers are off the charts this month. He should NEVER be traded with 14.29 apg.
  • Rebounds per game numbers are impressive for a guard with 13.41 rpg this month.
  • He is among the league's best in rebounds.
  • Bonus Qualities

  • Played in 12 more games this year than last year.
  • At this point in the season his numbers compared to last years: PPG: -5.09, APG: +4.75, RPG: +3.46, MPG: +0.17 STLS: --0.31 BLKS: +0.03

  • Performance Stats

  • Shooting 40.91% from the field this month.
  • Shooting 27.27% from beyond the arc this month. I'd love to play against him in a game of 'HORSE'.

  • Rebounds per game are at 3.25 for the month.
