Westbrook scored 57 points (21-40 FG, 6-15 3Pt, 9-11 FT) with 13 rebounds, 11 assists and three steals across 42 minutes of play in a 114-106 overtime win over the Magic on Wednesday. Westbrook outdid himself as well as every other player since the inception of the NBA by recording the most points in a triple-double in league history. It was made sweeter by the fact that he brought the Thunder back from a 21-point second half deficit to seal the win in overtime. Westbrook's historic performance was his fourth triple-double in a row and his third straight with over 35 points-- a truly remarkable feat.
Westbrook dropped 37 points (15-30 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding 13 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals across 36 minutes in Monday's 92-91 victory over the Mavericks. After single-handedly getting his team back into the game, Westbrook dropped the game-winner with seven seconds left as the Mavs, much like the rest of the league, had no answer for Westbrook. He recorded his 37th triple-double of the season Monday night and displayed that he can just about do anything he sets his mind to, especially late in the game when the pressure is solely on him to get his team a victory and one step closer to a firm playoff spot.
Westbrook scored 39 points (13-24 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 10-16 FT) while adding 13 assists and 11 rebounds in 39 minutes during Sunday's 137-125 loss to the Rockets. In a battle of MVP candidates, Westbrook has the better stat line but James Harden got the victory. Westbrook now has 36 triple-doubles on the season, including six in the last eight games, as he attempts to lock down a postseason berth for the Thunder.
Westbrook produced 18 points (6-6 FG, 6-6 FT), 14 assists, 11 rebounds and two blocks across 28 minutes during a 122-97 win over the 76ers on Wednesday. Westbrook, who had been averaging 23.8 field goal attempts per game on the season, took a major step back offensively Wednesday, as he went perfect from the field in taking a season-low six attempts from the floor. He was also able to secure a triple-double after missing out in the previous two games. It is unlikely that he will continue to be so passive on the offensive end, but he may take a small step back to finish the season to conserve a little energy with the playoffs looming.
Coach Billy Donovan said that Westbrook, who sustained a blister in Monday's loss to the Warriors, isn't in any danger of missing Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. Westbrook suffered through one of his worst performances of the season Monday, providing only 15 points (4-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 27 minutes. He suffered a floor burn on his right hand when he slid across the court upon being fouled by the Warriors' Draymond Green in the third quarter, but was able to play through the injury, which eventually turned into a blister. After receiving treatment after the game, Westbrook was able to partake in the team's non-contact practice Tuesday, though Donovan said the point guard wouldn't have been involved if there was contact. In any case, Westbrook shouldn't face any limitations heading into Wednesday, and he may be in store for a bounce-back performance as he takes on one of the league's worst defensive teams.
