Locked On Suns Friday: Suns falter in the fourth quarter behind strong outing from Russell Westbrook

The Suns kept it close for the first 36 minutes, but then OKC blew it open by an MVP performance from Russell Westbrook.

On today’s episode of Locked On Suns, we recap the Suns’ loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder live from Talking Stick Resort Arena. What were our main takeaways on both ends of the spectrum?

Devin Booker’s evolution as a jumbo playmaker continues to open eyes as he puts up a near triple-double, while T.J. Warren continues to be one of the most consistent Suns all season.

Also, Mikal Bridges looks to be taking on the role of defensive leader with another outing featuring multiple steals and blocks. Is his presence coupled with the likes of Kelly Oubre Jr., De’Anthony Melton, and Josh Jackson helping shift the Suns’ mentality?

Finally, we hit on Russell Westbrook’s strong outing from OKC’s point of view. The Suns had no answers as Mr. Triple-Double himself nearly put another one on his way to a 40-point explosion.
