The Oklahoma CIty Thunder were able to advance to second round of the NBA Playoffs after a fantastic game 5 win. They played phenomenally in the fourth quarter. Russell Westbrook was called out earlier by The Dallas Mavericks’s owner, Mark Cuban. Mark Cuban said, “Russell Westbrook is not a superstar.” This must have sparked something under Russell’s feet, because he went rampaging in game five. HE dropped in thirty-six points and fell one assist shy of a triple double. The Thunder will advance after finishing the series 4-1. Disclaimer: Do not call Russell Westbrook anything less than a superstar.
The Los Angeles Clippers fell to the Portland Trail Blazers in their second straight loss. The Clippers’s star point guard, Chris Paul, suffered a fractured hand. The series may be in doubt as Blake griffin re-injured his quad. The Blazers may be able to win the series against the short-handed Clippers
