Russell Westrook perfected the art of cooking up triple-doubles and he got his league leading 11th in a loss to the Rockets. This time his recipe included 40 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists.
The odds remain stacked against Westbrook claiming the MVP award, with OKC barely hanging on in the western conference playoff race. But if the league announces a Magic Johnson “Dude can do anything” award before he postseason begins. He’ll be a shoe in for the top spot.
