The Memphis Grizzlies’ primary concern on defense, of course, is Kevin Durant. If OKC Thunder guard Russell Westbrook wants to make their lives easier by continuing to jack up 20+ shots, Courtney Lee says that suits the Grizz just perfectly. Per Sports 56 WHBQ and The Oklahoman:
Courtney Lee: "We're fine with Westbrook taking shots, I mean, that's kinda what you want – the more shots he takes, the less Durant takes."

More Russell Westbrook is A-OK with Memphis Grizzlies guard Courtney Lee.
Lee said he’s just fine with Westbrook taking more shots for the Thunder in their Western Conference series. It’s better than the alternative – aka Kevin Durant.
Westbrook and Durant each attempted 28 shots in the Thunder’s 111-105 loss to Memphis on Monday, with Westbrook hitting 11 shots to Durant’s 12.
