Thunder’s Doug McDermott Working On Elevating His Game

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Doug McDermott is working to improve his game and to add something else to his repertoire.

McDermott doesn’t want to stay the same player and is hard at work to bring his game to the next level.

“I try to add something each summer because I don’t want to stay the same player,” McDermott said, according to Nick Gallo of NBA.com.

McDermott has a lot of room to improve after making a minimal impact during the start of his NBA career. The forward averaged just 6.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in 19.5 minutes over 22 games last season.

“I feel like I can still get a lot better… I’m just more than a spot-up shooter. I know I can move without the ball, and I think that just puts more pressure on them, and it can open up more things for everyone out there,” McDermott said.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook is taking the blame for the team’s recent struggles, saying that he has been letting his team down with his poor performances.

“I’ve just got to do a better job, man,” Westbrook said after his terrible performance against the Dallas Mavericks, according to ESPN’s Tim McMahon.

Westbrook finished with only 9 points on 4-of-22 shooting.

“It’s really on me. I’ve been s— the last month or so. I’ve just got to get focused in and locked back in on what I need to do. I’ve got to help my guys out. I’ve been letting them down, man, just not being consistent on the offensive end.

“Defensively, I’m fine, but just being more consistent, because I pride myself on being the most consistent player in the league. I come out every night and compete, play hard and all that stuff. Missing and making shots is a part of the game, but I’ve got to do a better job, and that’s on me. I’m going to definitely do that, so I’m not really worried. We play tomorrow, and I’ll be better from then on. It’s on me.”

“That’s all we’ve been talking about is fighting for each other,” Boylen said, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. “We talk about being a pack of wolves, man. I thought we had some of that. I liked the look in our guys’ eyes when that happened. It bonded them a little bit.”

The melee hit a fever pitch when Bulls center Robin Lopez got into a heated physical exchange with Thunder forward Jerami Grant, which bled into the stands.

Chicago lost the game in blowout fashion.
