Russell Westbrook needed a tough 34 rebounds across OKC’s final two games to become the first player in NBA history to average a triple-double across multiple NBA seasons.
Against Miami, he pulled in an impressive 18. Two days later, against Memphis, he hauled in a career high 20, ensuring that he now stands alone on Mt Triple Double.
Westbrook spoke of his achievement after the match.
“I’m very, very thankful and blessed to go out and compete … like I’ve said many, many times, I don’t take this game for granted, I don’t take going on the floor competing for granted, and God got something planned for me, man, nobody can stop it, and I always continue to follow his faith and stay faithful and stay strong and continue to do what I’m doing.”
Who knows what kind of damage OKC can do during the playoffs (the team has been inconsistent all season), but rest assured, Russ will be one of the player’s to watch, as the below video demonstrates – no one matches this guy in terms of frenetic energy.
