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.”
