Russell Westbrook PG vs. Tre Jones PG
Russell Westbrook of the Clippers has made an immediate impact this season, contributing 13.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game. While his experience and versatility are invaluable, there remains room for improvement with regard to turnovers per game and shooting efficiency (3.2 per game and shooting efficiency respectively). Westbrook’s aggressive playstyle may prove decisive against Chris Paul of the Spurs on Thursday evening.
Tre Jones of the Spurs has proven himself an indispensable playmaker with his impressive 8.1 point average and remarkable numbers like an assist-turnover ratio of 4. He will play an essential part in keeping Westbrook under control; Tre’s less aggressive scoring approach allows them to compete for supremacy on court.
Westbrook and Jones will play an instrumental role in deciding the outcome of this match-up, with Westbrook’s experience and all-around play against Jones’ steady playmaking and defensive skills proving particularly intriguing as they could swing momentum either way for this competition.
