Russell Westbrook scored 41 points during Sunday's All-Star game, making 16-of-26 shots with seven 3-pointers, seven assists, five rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes of action.
Westbrook has no 'off' switch. He threw down an alley-oop from Kevin Durant in the first quarter, which caused the Western Conference bench to serenade both players during a timeout, and the former teammates were the early focal point of tonight's game. His huge line came in just 20 minutes off the bench tonight, and he would have been the MVP for a third straight year if Anthony Davis hadn't blown up for a record-breaking 52 points.

Russell Westbrook headed into the All-Star break with an exclamation point, dropping 38 points, 14 rebounds, 12 assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in a win vs. the Knicks.

New York had zero answers for Westbrook defensively, and he wound up making 13-of-22 shots and 9-of-13 free throws to help his team snap a two-game losing streak. There are no Western Conference teams playing on Thursday, so the Thunder head into the break with the No. 7 seed, 1.5 games behind the Grizzlies. It will be fascinating to see how the two-time All-Star MVP performs this weekend, especially if Steve Kerr puts him in the same lineup as Kevin Durant.

Russell Westbrook played 24 minutes in a blowout loss to the Wizards on Monday, scoring 17 points on 5-of-19 shooting.

Joffrey Lauvergene also scored 17 points in the garbage time special, so it was that kind of night for Westy. He finished 7-of-7 from the line and missed all four of his 3-point attempts, adding four boards, four assists and two steals. The good news is that Westbrook should feast against Derrick Rose and the Knicks on Wednesday.
Feb 13 - 11:34 PM

Russell Westbrook tried to put the team on his back during a 130-114 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, scoring 47 points and adding 11 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, three 3-pointers and 11 turnovers in 37 minutes.

He made 14-of-26 from the field and 16-of-18 from the line to get him to his 47.2 usage rate today. Westbrook looked angry for most of this game and he was yelling "I'm coming" to Kevin Durant in the third quarter despite the Warriors being up 18 at that time. The turnovers have also been a problem for Westbrook with five double-digit turnover games this season, which is the most for a player in any season over the last 30 years. The Thunder are sitting in the seventh seed and aren't playing nearly as well as they were earlier this year.

Russell Westbrook posted his 26th triple-double of the season during a 118-109 win over the Cavs on Thursday, scoring 29 points with 12 rebounds, 11 assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Triple-double No. 26 ties him for the third most in an NBA season -- Roberson's 41 in 1961-62 is tops with Wilt Chamberlain's 31 at No. 2. Westbrook also becomes the first player since 1972 to have multiple triple-doubles against a defending champ. Triple-double stats aside, you know what's next. Kevin Durant will be in OKC on Saturday night. Get ready.
Feb 9 - 11:18 PM

Russell Westbrook just missed a triple-double on Monday, hitting 10-of-27 shots for 27 points, a season-high 18 rebounds, nine assists, a steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He did everything he could tonight and put up another monster fantasy line, and just missed a career high in boards by one. His shooting wasn't great, but he had only four turnovers, which is a nice number for him. The guy is still completely focused and dialed in, and isn't showing any signs of slowing down. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
Feb 6 - 9:51 PM

Russell Westbrook finished Sunday's win vs. the Blazers with 42 points (16-of-34 FGs, 9-of-11 FTs), eight assists, four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

Westbrook now has eight games with 40+ points this season, which is tied with James Harden for the league lead. He knocked down a few sweet bank shots tonight and continues to be a one-man wrecking crew for both OKC and his fantasy owners. The Thunder have a comfortable hold on the No. 7 seed out West, and they're within 2.5 games of the No. 4 seed Jazz.
Feb 5 - 6:49 PM

Russell Westbrook turned in his 25th triple-double of the season during a 114-102 win over the Grizzlies on Friday, scoring 38 points with 13 rebounds, 12 assists, three steals and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Yeah, yeah, a Russell Westbrook triple-double isn't even news anymore. What was interesting about this game is how awesome he was in the fourth. In those 8.7 minutes, he made 4-of-6 from the field and all nine free throws with no turnovers for his 19 points. Interestingly, Westbrook changed his shoes before entering in the fourth quarter because his first pair was bothering his toe. He'll probably want to stick with the those for his next game against the Blazers on Sunday.
Feb 4 - 1:50 AM

Coach Billy Donovan is not planning to increase Russell Westbrook's minutes.

When Westbrook is on the court, the Thunder have a +4.3 net rating, but it plummets to -12.1 when he's on the bench. "That would be great," Donovan said of the possible minutes increase. "But that's not fair to him, it's not fair to his career, it's not even fair to our team if we're trying to evolve into being a very good team." Westbrook ranks just 19th in the NBA in minutes per game and hasn't played over 40 minutes in a regulation game. Of course, when you're on pace for the highest usage rate ever, losing a couple minutes per game is no big deal.

Russell Westbrook hit 7-of-17 shots, three 3-pointers and 10-of-10 free throws for 27 points, six rebounds, 14 assists, a steal and six turnovers in Tuesday's 108-94 loss to the Spurs.

Westbrook has just one triple-double in his last three games after logging one in three straight and in six of his previous seven games. We kid about his lack of trip-dubs, as his next one is just around the corner, although it was a strange night for some of the games big dogs. James Harden hit just 3-of-9 shots for 10 points in a blowout, Anthony Davis hit just 4-of-18 shots in a loss, and neither Westbrook nor Harden triple-doubled. But you'd be hard pressed to find a Westy owner that's about to complain about tonight's line.

Russell Westbrook posted his league leading 24th triple-double of the season on Sunday, tallying 20 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

Another game, another triple-double for Westbrook. There's not much left to say about this guy, who is having a historic season, and he'll probably be on a lot of winning teams this year. He leads the league in usage (41.5) and assist percentage (53.6), and also sits in the top-15 in defensive rebounding percentage at 26.7 (he leads all guards in this category). So yeah, he's a beast.
Jan 29 - 6:10 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 45 points in 35 minutes during a 109-98 victory over the Mavs on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers.

He was 16-of-29 from the field to snap his streak of failing to make at least 38 percent in each of his previous four games. Westbrook has dealt with some poor efficiency issues this month, making just 38.5 percent from the field on a wild 24.0 shots-per-game volume this month. His three dimes today also dropped him to 10.2 assists per game on the year. Russ' assist percentage is much better with Enes Kanter (arm) on the court, so that injury may impact his ability to drop triple-doubles.
Jan 27 - 12:17 AM

Russell Westbrook posted his 23rd triple-double of the season during a 114-105 win over the Pelicans on Wednesday, scoring 27 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block, eight turnovers and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

That's his 60th triple-double of his career to pass Larry Bird and now Wilt Chamberlain is next with his 78 in his career. Westbrook has triple-doubled in six of his last seven and the Thunder have also gone 18-5 in the triple-double games this season. He still has a slight cushion to average a triple-double with season averages of 30.7 points, 10.7 boards and 10.4 assists. Triple-doubles for Westy aren't even a big deal anymore.
Jan 26 - 2:07 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 38 points and hit a game-winning mid-range jumper with a couple seconds left in Monday's 97-95 win over the Jazz.

He's an absolute monster. Westbrook recorded his 22nd triple-double of the season with 10 rebounds and 10 assists, adding four steals, one block, three triples and six turnovers. He finished 11-of-29 from the field and 13-of-17 from the line, an incredible feat against one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. Per StatMuse, Westbrook now has the most 30-point triple-doubles (21) in the last 30 years over LeBron James (21) and Michael Jordan (16). Not bad for an All-Star reserve...
Jan 24 - 1:10 AM

Russell Westbrook picked up his 21st triple-double of the season on Wednesday with 27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists, but he also had 10 turnovers in a lopsided loss to the Warriors.

Westbrook had his triple-double halfway through the third quarter, marking the 22nd time in his career that he's done it in three quarters or less. He made 8-of-23 FGs and 10-of-11 FTs tonight, with two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer, and continues to be a ridiculous fantasy asset on a nightly basis, especially in DFS and points leagues. Tonight's loss drops the Thunder into a virtual tie with Memphis for the No. 7 seed in the West, but they're still six games up on the No. 8 seed Nuggets.
