Russell Westbrook dismisses question about argument with James Harden

Russell Westbrook says that nobody should be concerned even though he and new teammate James Harden were shown arguing during their first game together on the Houston Rockets.

The Rockets lost at home to the Milwaukee Bucks 117-111 on Thursday night as Harden struggled, going 2-of-13 from the field. He was shown appearing to argue with Westbrook during the game.

Westbrook was asked after the game about the matter and dismissed it. He said nothing would get in between the two friends.

Like Chris Webber said on the telecast, perhaps Harden and Westbrook’s friendship is the reason they have a comfort level where they feel they can get into things in their first game together with the Rockets (they were previously teammates on the Thunder).

The Rockets shot 36.7 percent from the field against the tough Bucks defense, which is likely the biggest explanation for their opening night loss. How well Westbrook and Harden play together remains one of the greatest topics of intrigue for the season.
