"It’s not like that with me. I’m just going to go out there and play basketball like I do every night.”

Room for improvement?
When asked about Russell Westbrook’s potential to blossom into a nightly triple-double threat, Brooks said the rebounding category currently is the most difficult stat for his point guard to accumulate. Westbrook is third among point guards in rebounding with a 4.9 average, his 1.6 offensive boards ranking first among players at the position.

"Offensively, he’s a pretty good rebounder,” Brooks said. "But he needs to focus more on getting defensive rebounds. I think he can get five of those a game.”

Former American Idol contestant Matt Giraud will perform the national anthem and a special halftime show as part of the Thunder’s festivities during tonight’s New Year’s Eve game against the Jazz.
