James Harden and Russell Westbrook are reunited on the Los Angeles Clippers, but they are having trouble matching up on the court. Both players are over 30 and have shifted to being the primary organizers in the game. Willis is no longer a high-scoring triple-double threat, while Harden's scoring average has plummeted to 20 points and 10 assists per game over the past two seasons.
Westbrook's flaws as a no-ball player were exposed during his dismal career with the Los Angeles Lakers, and Harden is no different. Both players have struggled with the no-ball game in recent years.
However, Harden is a better shooter and outside threat than LeBron James. That's something Clippers head coach Ty Lue needs to keep in mind as he tries to figure out how to best use Harden and Westbrook. If this move is going to work, Lue may need to convince Harden to take on a second organizational core role.
