On Sunday night, Russell Westbrook recorded his 29th triple-double of the season with 41 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists in a 118-110 Thunder win over the Pelicans.
Westbrook is now on pace for 40 triple-doubles for the season. Forty in an 82 game season. The exclamation point moment of the triple-double (and for Russ an exclamation point moment is an every game occurrence) came with 2:38 to play in the 4th quarter when he viciously dunked over DeMarcus Cousins for the and-1.
Goodness that was nasty. Westbrook and the Thunder improved to 34-25 on the year and sit .5 game out of the 6th spot in the Western Conference and 3 games behind Utah at No. 4.
Here are the full highlights of Russ being Russ.
