Westbrook clinches triple-double average for season

Share

October 28: 51 points, 10 assists and 13 rebounds.

"I'm honored just to be mentioned in a conversation with Oscar Robertson", Westbrook said. "If I wanted to get 10 assists, I could get 10 assists".

Westbrook accomplished the feat with his sixth assist. becoming the \ first National Basketball Association player in 55 years to average a triple-double for a season and the second in league history. I just didn't want it to be here.

Westbrook did get the six assists he needed to assure that he'd join Robertson as the only players to average a triple-double for a season - breaching double figures for all three categories.

Since posting seven straight triple-doubles to tie Oscar Robertson's record 41 set during the 1961-62 season, Russ has double-doubled in two straight games.

After the game, Westbrook went straight to the practice court and stayed there for almost an hour.

"Get your mind right", he explained. "But it wasn't falling for me tonight".

Russell Westbrook has been in basically a two-man race for NBA MVP with James Harden all season long.

The Phoenix Suns had the 13-game losing streak. Like I said, I'm a competitor. "I've seen enough miraculous things this year".

Entering the fourth quarter with 16 points, Booker exploded for 21, making 7-of-11 field goal attempts, including a trio of 3s plus going a ideal 4-of-4 from the foul line. "But just wanna give him and our team every opportunity to try to have a chance to win".

Phoenix Suns: PG - Brandon Knight, SG - Devin Booker, SF - TJ Warren, PF - Jared Dudley, C - Tyson Chandler.

Second quarter: Westbrook just could not find his shooting touch, as he missed five more field goal attempts before his first make, a 17-foot pull-up jumper, at the 50.4 mark.

But his half-time stats were ugly: 2-for-13 shooting, 0 for 4 on 3s, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 6 turnovers.

Russell Westbrook has became only the second player in National Basketball Association history to average a triple-double for an entire season on Friday night, but he could not do enough to stop his Oklahoma City Thunder from losing to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday. Allen finished last night with 7 rebounds, continuing his elevated rebound rate for the season. Both men would be first-time MVPs should they win the honor.

And setting aside the triple-doubles for a second, his clutch heroics have arguably been more memorable than him consistently hitting a set of arbitrary numbers. The playoffs should be really entertaining this year with the way Westbrook is playing and he will not stop until the Oklahoma City Thunder are world champions. With the win, Oklahoma City improved to 45-33 on the season which is still good for sixth place in the Western Conference standings. Two of the games went over the total and the one game that stayed under did so by half a point.

Phoenix jumped out to an early 14-2 lead, but things didn't start spiraling out of control for the Thunder until late in the second quarter.

Russell Westbrook's performance against the Phoenix Suns on Friday night can best be described as bittersweet.
