MEMPHIS, Tennessee -- For the second time this postseason, Oklahoma City point guard Russell Westbrook is drawing criticism for his late-game performance in a pivotal game.

Against Memphis, the third-year point guard scored a team-high 23 points and dished out 12 assists, but struggled with turnovers late and contributed to the Thunder’s late-game fade.

For Oklahoma City to claim a must-win game four and avoid falling behind 3-1 in the series, the Thunder needs a big performance from all of its stars, and great play from Westbrook.
