Westbrook continues to miss go-ahead shots as Thunder fall to Hawks
Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Russell Westbrook flirted with his second 50-point performance of the season Monday, but he and the Oklahoma City Thunder ultimately came up short in a 110-108 Atlanta Hawks victory.

Westbrook finished three assists short of another triple-double, logging 46 points, 11 rebounds, and seven dimes - while shooting 16-of-33 from the floor. He was 3-for-10 from beyond the arc, including this missed trey with under three seconds left in the game (Steven Adams then tried to put away the rebound, but time had expired).

The miss continued a somewhat disturbing trend for Westbrook. He is now 0-for-5 this season on potential go-ahead shots in the final five seconds of the fourth quarter or overtime, according to ESPN.

Westbrook, not a consistent 3-point threat, is shooting a career-high 32.5 percent from deep this season - well below the ideal mark in the mid-to-high thirties. His field goal percentage of 42.6 also ranks as one of the lowest of his last seven seasons.

The Thunder were without Victor Oladipo and the Hawks minus Dwight Howard for Monday's game.
