Russel Westbrook was one triple-double away from eclipsing the all-time mark set by Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson in a season 55 years ago and he did it in a dramatic win on the road in Denver. Notching 50 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assist and a game-winning buzzer beater from deep. Why not.
“Very, very blessed. I’ve got to give all the thanks from the man above,” Westbrook said. “He’s blessed me with unbelievable talent to go out and compete at a high level. I’m just thankful for my teammates, for my coaching staff, for the organization, for all the fans, for my family for believing in me and allowing me to do what I’m doing.”
