Westbrook will try to lead Thunder past Jazz

OKLAHOMA CITY -- For the majority of his career, Russell Westbrook was not seen as a closer. Whenever that term would pop up around NBA circles, it was always assigned to his former Oklahoma City teammate Kevin Durant.

But with Durant gone, it has allowed and forced Westbrook to become the closer the Thunder need.

Westbrook showed off his closing skills Sunday when he posted a personal-best 21 fourth-quarter points in a win over New Orleans.
