Westbrook pushing Rose for ROY?

Don’t look now, but Russell Westbrook is on fire. He’s still not shooting the ball particularly well (40% on the season), but check out his February averages:

20.6 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 5.9 apg and 1.2 spg

He even had his first triple-double the other night when he posted 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists against Jason Kidd and the Dallas Mavericks.

Here are Rose’s February numbers:

15.8 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 6.8 apg and 0.9 spg

Rose is shooting 47% on the season, so he’s a much more efficient scorer.

Still, Rose jumped out to a quick start this season in the ROY race, so it’s interesting to see someone close the gap. I suspect Thunder fans are feeling pretty good about the possibility of having two straight ROY winners. That’s a good way to build a franchise.

Westbrook needs to work on his jumper, but other than that, he looks like the real deal.
