After a commercial and preview hyping Russell Westbrook’s “Tailored for Flight” debut of a new shoe, it was pretty obvious that Westbrook was going to bring out some heat during the Thunder’s first playoff game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Westbrook lived up to expectations, debuting a PE of the Jordan XX9 against the Grizzlies. It’s the first time the XX9 has been on an NBA court after the shoe was unveiled on Thursday.
Westbrook finished with 23 points, 5 rebounds, and 10 assists as the Thunder won 100-86 in Game 1 of their first round matchup with the Memphis.
