SAN FRANCISCO -- Following the Oklahoma City Thunder's shootaround on Monday morning, Russell Westbrook was asked how the assignment of guarding Stephen Curry is different than other point guards he matches up with.
"He's a shooter," Westbrook said ahead of Monday night's Western Conference finals opener against the Golden State Warriors. "He's not nothing I haven't seen. Him, [Damian] Lillard, guys like that, can shoot the basketball from four or five feet behind the 3, you've got to do a little different job. But just be physical."
Curry has won consecutive MVP awards and was named the first unanimous MVP in NBA history this season. He broke his own 3-point record again this season, making 402 total. Westbrook was also asked what he saw from the MVP's historic season.
"Making shots," Westbrook said. "He does a good job of making shots, creating shots for himself. He's a tough shot-maker."
Westbrook, who will likely have the primary assignment of guarding Curry, finished fourth in the MVP voting, registering 18 triple-doubles in the regular season, the most since Magic Johnson in 1981-82.
