Westbrook carrying Houston into Denver matchup

Over the past couple of years, Houston Rockets' opponents had one big concern -- slowing down James Harden.

When the Rockets acquired Russell Westbrook from Oklahoma City in July 2019, that dynamic changed. The two-time MVP guard has shown why over the past few games. Westbrook has found a groove with Houston over the past seven games, averaging 33.6 points, 8.7 rebounds and 9.1 assists.

He will try to continue that torrid play when the Rockets visit the Denver Nuggets on Sunday afternoon.
