Russell Westbrook assumed responsibility for the Rockets’ loss to the Knicks (123-125). He had 24 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists, but that wasn’t enough to save his team from an unexpected defeat.

“We were supposed to come out and take care of business to be completely honest and that starts with myself… So, this one’s on me. I didn’t bring the amount of pressure I needed to be able to make us go. So, I’ll take this one and get ready for the next one,” Westbrook said.
