I’m no doctor but I’d say Russell Westbrook is back to full strength after missing significant time with a fractured right hand. Why do I think that?
Because the Oklahoma City Thunder guard threw down the season’s most emphatic dunk with the hand in question last night against the Detroit Pistons.
Granted, it was at the expense of Josh “Defense-Optional” Smith, but it was still impressive.
Don’t look now, but the Pistons are now 3-18 on the year — only one game better than the Philadelphia 76ers. If they’re not careful, they’ll become the hypothetical matchup for this year’s Kentucky team.
