If you ask Rashawn Powell (Orlando, Fla./Dr. Phillips) he’ll tell you he’s got a little Russell Westbrook in his game. The ESPN 100 prospect and the Oklahoma City Thunder star both play the point, and both know to score when they need to.

“I like to get my team involved first, but if the team’s not hitting shots, that’s when I go ahead and do my own thing,” Powell said. “I’m still going to get the team involved, but sometimes I’ve got to focus on scoring to get my team to the win.”

When Powell’s AAU coach, Diane Neal, was watching Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night, she saw Westbrook make a move against the Miami Heat that was reminiscent of her own point guard. She even texted Powell’s father to let him know.
