WATCH: Westbrook minces no words on his thoughts about 50-point triple-double
The Thunder point guard made history, but his team lost Wednesday night in Game 2
At times uniquely brilliant, at times incredibly frustrating, Russell Westbrook certainly had a performance to remember Wednesday night in Houston during Game 2 of the Thunder's first-round series against the Rockets, as he put up 51 points with 10 rebounds and 13 assists, recording the first ever 50-point triple-double in the postseason.
It wasn't enough to get a win, however, as Westbrook also recorded a brutal fourth quarter, shooting just 4-of-14. The Rockets emerged with a 115-111 win and a 2-0 series lead.
After the game, Westbrook was understandably upset and in no mood to appreciate his historic stat line. When asked in the postgame press conference what he thought about the numbers, Westbrook minced no words (NSFW language ahead).
Well, OK then.
There won't be any need for debate or second guessing on that quote.
