Thabo Sefolosha→Grade: B-. →Comment: Sefolosha’s minutes took a hit in light of Harden’s increased productivity, and there were fewer big-name players for Sefolosha to lock up in December. As a result, Sefolosha’s numbers decreased, but he remained effective when given the opportunities.
Russell Westbrook→Grade: A+. →Comment: Westbrook averaged 7.5 assists against 2.5 turnovers, proving he can effectively run a team. His controlled play and improved decision-making came at the expense of his offense, as his shooting slipped to 35.7 percent from the field and 20.6 percent from 3. But over his last nine games in December, Westbrook tallied 73 assists and just 18 turnovers.
Incomplete→Matt Harpring, Byron Mullens, Kevin Ollie, Etan Thomas, Kyle Weaver, D.J. White.
