Westbrook's 18th triple-double leads Thunder past Grizzlies
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Russell Westbrook posted his 18th triple-double of the season, and the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 103-95 on Wednesday night.
Westbrook finished with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists for the 55th triple-double of his career. He already has matched his triple-double total from last season less than halfway through this one, and last year's total was the most for a player since Magic Johnson had 18 during the 1981-82 season.
Enes Kanter scored 19 points and Victor Oladipo added 16 for the Thunder, who won their third straight and avenged their worst loss of the season. The Thunder lost 114-80 in Memphis on Dec. 29, a game Westbrook was ejected from.
Mike Conley scored 22 points, and Zach Randolph and Chandler Parsons each scored 14 for the Grizzlies.
