Westbrook clinches triple-double average for season

Author

"For me to do it, it's an extreme blessing". He averaged 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists for the Cincinnati Royals in the 1961-62 season.

To be honest, about a month ago I would have agreed. In one sequence late in the game, he ignored a couple of shots he would normally take to pass the ball. He's the first player since the venerable PG Oscar Robertson did so way back in 1962. The 13-game losing streak is over. They also felt provisionally odd.

With 21 fourth-quarter points, Booker now leads ALL NBA players with SIX 20-point quarters this season, putting him one ahead of Russell Westbrook and Stephen Curry. He had five turnovers in the first quarter, including three in the first three minutes.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan said the chance to break Robertson's record had nothing to do with his decision to play Westbrook deep into the fourth quarter, despite the lopsided score, citing some of the remarkable comebacks that Westbrook has pulled off this season.

Westbrook entered the game averaging 31.8 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game while also leading the National Basketball Association in PER. And while Westbrook was stuck in neutral, the Suns sped away. Just not here. And Westbrook didn't. 'If I wanted to get 10 assists, I could get 10 assists. "He's a fan favorite". He finished the game with 37 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists. We've seen how the playoffs go with no Conley (2016) and a 50% Conley with a broken face (2015) and with a hobbled Gasol (2014). The chanting only got quirky from there.

In the hunt for that record, Westbrook has come up just short in two-consecutive games, which has been painstaking for National Basketball Association fans everywhere to watch on the edge of their seats. Like I said, I'm a competitor. His 70% shooting night last night certainly didn't hurt, either, but it's the offensive rebounding-the ability to create more possessions for a team that's starving for them-that is the most impressive new wrinkle in Allen's game.

The Suns kept fouling to prevent assists in those final minutes. People of the Oklahoma City and Phoenix can't be able to watch this match on online.

Suns point guard Tyler Ulis offered his take. "You don't wanna be on the opposite side of history when things like that happen".

While it may have been a truly phenomenal season for Westbrook individually, he insisted his main focus is on leading the Thunder to a successful NBA Finals. Westbrook already has his 10-10 clinched for APG and RPG before he even steps on to the court. While Westbrook may be essential to his team, deeming the sixth seed successful is a stretch. Every opportunity. Donovan insisted it wasn't by design. I thought it would be a shame to have either one of these players not get the MVP award and sharing the award made sense. "I've seen enough miraculous things this year: At Dallas, at Orlando and some other places..."
