Just two games have passed since Russell Westbrook joined the Clippers, and despite their outstanding offensive play, they have lost both games. Both of those games needed overtime since they couldn’t be finished in four quarters.
After losing to the Kings in two overtimes, 176–175, the Clippers travelled to Denver and forced an extra period against the Nuggets. Russ played most of the important minutes in the previous game before fouling out, but he was forced to sit for the majority of the final few minutes against the Nuggets.
Because of this, according to Skip Bayless, Brodie may have already triggered Ty Lue in the same way that he did with Dravin Ham when using Purple and Gold.
Russell Westbrook, according to Skip Bayless, could already be problematic for Ty Lue.
Even though Russell Westbrook joined his former employers’ across-the-hall rivals in LA, things may not improve for him and his stumbling career.

Skip Bayless Was Prepared With a Conspiracy Theory
Russ scored 17 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, and handed out 4 assists in the brief 25 minutes he had against The Joker and his #1 team.
But Ty Lue still did not want to use him to finish the game, neither in regulation time nor the overtime period.
Skip Bayless, a Fox Sports analyst, was prepared with a conspiracy theory. When starter Russell Westbrook was benched in the fourth quarter, the Clippers fought back to force overtime.
Westbrook appeared to be sitting at the end of the bench and not taking part in any of the bench clapping or sideline huddles. Will he start causing Lue the same problem that Darvin Ham had?

Are the Clippers Correct in Having Acquired Russell Westbrook?
If anything, his forecast is only halfway accurate; we would not expect Westbrook to play even the amount of minutes he does now, or we could expect him to come off the bench, perhaps behind Bones Hyland.
This club, which features Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, has been looking for a conventional playmaker for a while.
After experimenting with a number of players since the pair first teamed up on this side of Los Angeles Lakers, the LA Clippers chose to go with Russell Westbrook after cutting Reggie Jackson and John Wall, who both lacked good ball-handling skills.
It wouldn’t help to replace them with a shooter as terrible and willing as Russell Westbrook. Instead, if Westbrook suddenly begins to think he is still the superstar Russ, it may make matters much worse than they previously were.
