Russell Westbrook made history in Wednesday's 137-123 win over the Grizzlies, corralling enough rebounds to become the only player to average a triple-double in two seasons.
Westbrook needed 15 coming into the game and left with 20. He only scored six points on the night (2-of-9 shooting) but dropped 19 assists for one of the more incredible double-doubles you'll ever see. Russ finishes the season as an early-round play but couldn't quite hit the same heights he did during last year's MVP campaign. His turnovers are a major issue for 9-cat owners and explain the disparity between his top-12 and top-25 output as a per-game player, though top-10 and top-20 finishes as a result of 80 games played are still solid returns. He was again hurt by poor field goal percentages but also struggled from the line this year with a career-low .737 mark on 7.1 attempts per game. Add it all up and Russ remained elite but failed to deliver on his lofty ADP.
