Westbrook had played 10 straight games after returning from knee surgery on Feb. 20 and averaged 27.4 minutes, 24.1 points, 8.4 assists, 4.9 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 2.5 threes over his last eight. However, before March 16-17 the Thunder hadn't had a back-to-back since Jan. 31-Feb. 1, which was before Westbrook returned to the lineup. OKC has two more back-to-back sets in March and three in April, so we may see Westbrook get a few more games off to rest.
