Russell Westbrook was sublime on Sunday, posting a gargantuan 37-13-14 triple-double while shooting 15-of-22 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line.
When Westbrook scores efficiently the Thunder are pretty tough to beat. Unfortunately, it’s been a relatively rare occurrence considering he’s shooting .447 on over 21 attempts per game this season. That’s five straight triple-doubles for Russ, however, and he remains about as elite as can be in terms of counting stats. He was ready to attack from the jump and just couldn’t be slowed down. Owners shouldn’t expect that shooting to hold up but he probably tilted some playoff matchups today.
