Russell Westbrook is one of the most impressive scorers in the NBA right now, but you don't become a walking triple-double without making plays for your teammates as well.
That's exactly what Westbrook did for his first assist in the nation's capital, coming in the opening quarter of Saturday's preseason game against the Pistons.
This is a beautiful, one-handed pass by Westbrook that borders on no-look status. He finds Bryant for an easy two to pick up his lone assists of the quarter.
Westbrook also scored six points of his own, and pulled in two rebounds as well. The Wizards are expecting him to fill up the box score most nights while making his teammates better, and that's exactly what he did in his first impression in Washington.
