HOUSTON - Game 5 will be the first game in Oklahoma City since the full extent of Westbrook’s injury was determined. He was hurt in Game 2 when Houston’s Patrick Beverley lunged for a steal and slammed into Westbrook’s knee.
"It’s going to be fun. I’m looking forward to all the boos and stuff," Beverley said. "I understand the crowd is going to be amped up and I hope that’s going to get us that much more focused."
Added McHale: "In the famous words of Bill Walton, ‘If they’re cheering you in the opposing gym, you’re doing something wrong.’ I don’t think they’ll be cheering, so he must be doing something right."
