The OKC duo has officially part ways. Paul George to the clippers and hometown legend Russell Westbrook to the rockets. What’s next for these two stats careers? Only time will tell.
Today I will be giving my opinion on who played better than in the stretch they were together.
Case for Westbrook:
continued stretch of triple double seasons (2), assists leader for those 2 seasons. Improved defence significantly. Carried thunder in games 5 and 6 against the Jazz (45 and 46 points). Case for Paul George:
Improved 3P shooting greatly. Candidate for DPOY for both years. 2019 mvp candidate. Game 5 against Portland.
While many people (especially recently) will say PG13 is better than Westbrook and played better in the time they were together, I would have to give the nod to Westbrook. Not only did Westbrook lead PG in rebounds and assists over the two regular seasons, but playoffs aswell and outperformed him staggeringly in the jazz series. Infact Paul George never really stepped up for the thunder in any series consistently, and by the time he finally found groove in game 5 against Portland, it was too late. Paul George regressed quite a bit in the playoffs and his shooting percentages tell that story.
In addition, while PG13 was clearly the better defender over this stretch, I don’t think he’s defence overtakes Westbrook’s ball handling and passing value. While Paul George is a better defender than Westbrook, Westbrook is still an above average - under elite defender ranking top 3 in steals, top 10 in defensive rating, top 10 in defensive +- (among guards)
While Paul George has had great regular seasons, in the playoffs russ becomes the alpha Again and willed the thunder with his performances. His passing and ball handling abilities prove his value over George in the playoffs.
Will they find more success on their new teams?
Who played better in their time together ?
