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. Jan 19 - 1:26 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 24 points on 7-of-19 shooting with five rebounds, four assists, two steals, two triples and four turnovers in Monday's blowout loss to the Clippers.

It's amazing that a line like this can actually be called an off night, but that's how good Westy has been this season. He's still averaging a triple-double on the year, so his owners have nothing to complain about. He gets a matchup with Kevin Durant and the Warriors on Wednesday, but he struggled in their first meeting with 20 points on 4-of-15 shooting. He will still be a recommended DFS target for obvious reasons.
Jan 17 - 1:35 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 36 points, with 11 rebounds, 10 assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in Sunday’s 122-118 victory over the Kings.

He shot the ball well today, hitting 11-of-21 field goals and 4-of-5 from beyond the arc, while recording his 20th triple-double of the season. He does have a tendency to turn the ball over a lot, but makes up for it by stuffing the stat sheet on a nightly basis. He remains the league’s leader with a 41.1 percent usage rate. The Thunder are 16-4 whenever Westbrook has triple-doubled this season.
Jan 16 - 12:52 AM

Russell Westbrook dropped his 19th triple-double of the season during a 96-86 loss to the Wolves on Friday, scoring 21 points with 11 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

This was actually a brutal game for him, making just 7-of-23 from the field and turning it over 10 times to give him the bad quad-double. Westbrook was asked about turning in his 19th triple-double to set a record for the most in a season since the merger. "It don't mean [expletive]. We lost," Westbrook said. For what it's worth, the Thunder are 15-4 when Westy drops a triple-double this season.
Jan 13 - 11:52 PM

Russell Westbrook turned in his 18th triple-double on the season during a 103-95 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday, scoring 24 points with 13 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals, one block and six turnovers in 37 minutes.

The Grizzlies actually defended him well in this game with Westbrook only making 6-of-19 from the field. That's not too surprising after they help him assists-less in their last game -- he was also ejected in the second half. This was also the first time he's had a triple-double against the Grizzlies in a regular season game -- the Grizzlies have 10 as a franchise and Westy has three playoff triple-doubles in his career. Westbrook should have a field day against the Wolves on Friday.
Jan 12 - 12:02 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting with 14 assists, nine rebounds, one steal, one triple and three turnovers against the Bulls on Monday.

Westbrook's 3-point attempts are way up and he attempted a whopping 49 triples in his last four games, hitting them at a 38.7 percent clip. He was just 1-of-7 from deep tonight, but Thunder coach Billy Donovan doesn't seem to mind. "When he gets a couple in a row, I think you have to let him maybe take a couple more that may look highly contested or difficult, because he can make them." Westbrook will look to get some revenge against Memphis on Wednesday after he was ejected in their previous meeting.

Jan 9 - 11:01 PM

Russell Westbrook posted his 17th triple-double of the season during a 121-106 win over the Nuggets on Saturday, scoring 32 points with 17 rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and seven 3-pointers.

When Westbrook is hitting seven treys, it's pretty much a wrap, as his coach knows. "When he's got it going, I want him to heat-check a little bit," coach Billy Donovan said. Westbrook's rebounding numbers have been center-like and he has more of those than assists this season.
Jan 7 - 11:22 PM

Russell Westbrook hit 16-of-34 shots, a career-high eight 3-pointers and 9-of-11 free throws on his way to 49 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and five turnovers in Thursday's tough 118-116 loss to the Rockets.

Westbrook did everything he could tonight, but it just wasn't enough against James Harden and company. He shot it pretty well, made twice as many 3-pointers as he had in all but two games this season (5), and was a beast, as usual. He's likely going to run out of gas at some point this season, but for now, he looks just as motivated and determined now as he did in the first game of the season.
Jan 5 - 10:44 PM

Russell Westbrook piled up 33 points, 15 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and one block in a losing effort on Wednesday, making 10-of-31 FGs and 11-of-13 FTs.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist began the game on Westbrook defensively, but he's used to facing an opponent's best defender on a nightly basis. Despite all of the attention, Westbrook is still posting an unreal 42.1 percent usage rate, while accounting for 30 percent of OKC's scoring, 50 percent of their assists, and 23 percent of their rebounds. Excessive turnovers and mediocre FG percentages have slightly dented his value, which is otherwise flawless.
Jan 4 - 9:56 PM

Russell Westbrook hit just 9-of-28 shots and 2-of-10 3-pointers, but also drained 10-of-11 free throws for 30 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and five turnovers.

This was one of his worst shooting lines of the season, but it's hard to be mad at him, especially considering he still ended up with 30 points. The dream season rages on, even when he wasn't at his best tonight. And even though he's averaging 5.4 turnovers per game, he's had just six of them over his last two games.
Jan 2 - 10:34 PM

Russell Westbrook posted his 16th triple-double of the season during an easy 114-88 win over the Clippers on Saturday, scoring 17 points with 12 rebounds, 14 assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

He had his triple-double before halftime and only needed 19 minutes to get to the point. That's his fastest of his career and the third-fastest in NBA history -- Jim Tucker is first with 17 minutes. Another positive is he turned the ball over just one time after averaging 6.0 per game in his previous three. We may see multiple triple-doubles in Monday's game against the Bucks in what should be one of the most fun games in 2017. Happy new year!
Jan 1 - 12:40 AM

Russell Westbrook was ejected for two technical fouls in the third quarter against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

He picked up both of his techs over about a five-second span. Westbrook looked to be arguing about the shot clock being reset. He's very unlikely to get further punishment for this and should be fine for the weekend. For tonight, Westbrook had just the third game of his career without an assist, finishing with 21 points, five rebounds, two steals, six turnovers and two 3-pointers. He'll get a date with Chris Paul on Saturday.

Tony Allen suggested he'll be guarding Russell Westbrook on Thursday.

"I stick elite players every night. But he's on an all-time elite level," Allen said about Westbrook. "That's what got y'all in my face right now." It looks like The Grindfather will have his hands full tonight. Westbrook is first in the NBA for pick-and-roll scoring, which hasn't really been a strong area for Allen this season. Westbrook is about as matchup proof as it gets.

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled in Tuesday's 106-94 win over the Heat with 29 points, 17 rebounds and 11 assists.

It's his 15th triple-double of the season and he had this one locked up with six minutes left in the third quarter. He finished 11-of-22 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line with a game-high seven turnovers in 37 minutes. His rebounding ability is incredible for a PG and he's one of six players in NBA history to record 29 points, 17 rebounds and 11 assists in a game, joining Larry Bird (twice), Larry Johnson, Draymond Green, Lamar Odom and James Harden.

Russell Westbrook powered the Thunder to a 112-100 home win on Sunday with 31 points, 15 assists and seven rebounds in just 33 minutes.

Westbrook rounded out another brilliant effort with one 3-pointer, one steal and one block. The only caveats are his customary five turnovers and the fact that he picked up his eighth technical foul tonight, tied for second-most in the league -- with another eight techs he'll face a mandatory one-game suspension.
