Russell Westbrook recorded his fifth consecutive triple-double during Sunday's 132-125 win over the Raptors, tallying 37 points, 13 rebounds and 14 assists in 37 minutes.
Brodie also added one 3-pointer, two steals and five turnovers while he was out there, and he was in attack mode as soon as the ball tipped, only missing one shot through the first half of action. He then proceeded to go bonkers through the final frame of action, posting a monster 61.2 usage rate while scoring 17 of his 37 points as he willed OKC to victory. Additionally, with his fifth straight triple-double, he joined Oscar Roberson as the only players in NBA history with three, five-game triple-double streaks. Mar 18 - 5:15 PM

Russell Westbrook notched the 100th triple-double of his career on Tuesday with 32 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists.

Westbrook is now the fourth player in NBA history with at least 100 triple-doubles, joining Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson and Jason Kidd. He took over late with Steven Adams (hip) unavailable and Paul George (groin) exiting late, finishing 12-of-20 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line. He even chipped in a steal and a block for good measure, and will be extra busy if George misses games with his groin injury.
Mar 13 - 10:16 PM

Russell Westbrook hit 7-of-19 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, recording his 20th triple-double of the season and the 99th of his NBA career in Monday's win over the Kings.

The Thunder are hanging in the playoff hunt in the West, but their schedule's about to get very difficult and the Thunder will rely on Westbrook heavily down the stretch. He should be highly motivated to get his 100th triple-double against the lowly Hawks on Tuesday, but the Thunder will likely win that one in a landslide, meaning Westy might not play the fourth quarter. After the Hawks, the Thunder's next 11 games will come against teams in, or just on the brink of, the playoffs. And that's when Westbrook should really take off.
Mar 12 - 11:02 PM

Russell Westbrook was good for 21 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists over 36 minutes in Saturday's 104-94 win against the Spurs.

It was Westbrook's 19th triple-double of the season, as he continues to be very pleasing to his fantasy owners despite the fact he also picked up five more turnovers. He is now just two triple-doubles shy of 100 for his NBA career. Only three players in NBA history have hit 100 or more triple-doubles - Jason Kidd (107), Earvin 'Magic' Johnson (138) and Oscar Robertson (181).
Mar 10 - 11:53 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 27 points on 11-of-14 from the field during a 115-87 win over the Suns on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, nine assists and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

The elixir known as the Suns will cure a lot of ailments, so the Thunder also snapped a two-game losing streak. Most of their issues have been on the defensive end lately, but Westy has been strong on O. Westbrook's usage rate is way up to 36.0 over his last five with a 58.8 TS%, so he's shaping up to be the top DFS play most nights.
Mar 9 - 12:35 AM

Russell Westbrook hit 15-of-27 shots and missed all four of his 3-pointers for 32 points, four rebounds, seven assists, a steal, a block and nine turnovers in Tuesday's 122-112 loss to the Rockets.

The Thunder are currently the No. 7 seed, but sit just 1.0 games ahead of the No. 8 Clippers (In action right now) and No. 9 Nuggets, and just 2.0 games ahead of the streaking No. 10 Jazz. The good news for Thunder fans is that they get the Suns on Thursday, the banged-up Spurs on Saturday, then the Kings on Monday and Hawks on Tuesday. They'll need to win those games, as things tighten up with the Clippers, Raptors, Celtics, Heat, Blazers, Spurs and Nuggets to close out March. The Thunder clearly have their work cut out for them if they're going to make the playoffs, as April doesn't look any better: They finish the season at New Orleans, vs. Golden State, at Houston, at Miami and at home against the Grizzlies on the final day of the season. Yikes!
Mar 6 - 11:08 PM

Russell Westbrook ended up with 30 points over 35 minutes in Saturday's 108-100 loss at Portland.

Westbrook went 12-of-31 from the floor, including 1-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, while adding 11 rebounds, six assists and a blocked shot. He was off his game coming out of the All-Star break, averaging just 13.3 PPG in three outings from Feb. 22-26. Westbrook is back to doing what he does best - score. Over the past three outings he is averaging 34.3 PPG with 12.0 RPG and 7.0 APG.
Mar 4 - 1:13 AM

Russell Westbrook led the Thunder to a 124-116 comeback win over the Suns in style, scoring 43 points with 14 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and two triples.

Westy finished 16-of-25 from the field and 9-of-11 from the line with five turnovers, and it was his go-ahead 3-pointer with 56 seconds left that gave OKC a 119-116 edge. He also came up with two huge offensive rebounds in the final minute. This was his third game of the season with 40+ points, and after stumbling out of the All-Star break, he's hot again with a combined 73 points in his last two games.
Mar 2 - 11:58 PM

Russell Westbrook scored a game-high 30 points during a 111-110 overtime win over the Mavs on Wednesday, adding 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, one block and nine turnovers in 42 minutes.

The Thunder lucked out to get this win and they didn't get the Bestbrook version of their reigning MVP. Westbrook has also been a mess since the break and is wasting a ton of possessions, averaging a whopping 7.3 turnovers per game with his woeful 33.3 percent from the field on 16.5 attempts per game. OKC still went 3-1 in those game and they sit in the No. 7 spot in the air-tight Western Conference standings.
Mar 1 - 12:02 AM

Russell Westbrook hit just 3-of-12 shots for eight points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal, seven turnovers and five fouls in 35 minutes of Monday's 112-105 win over the Magic.

The fact the Thunder won this game with that game from Westbrook should tell you just how hard the Magic are tanking. Carmelo Anthony wasn't much better, hitting 4-of-15 shots for nine points and nine boards, but Paul George scored 26, Steven Adams played well, and the Thunder bench made a rare appearance in the win.
Feb 26 - 11:10 PM

Russell Westbrook made 4-of-15 from the field for 15 points during a 112-80 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding 12 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

OKC had a brutal offensive night with their season-low in points and FG%. As for Westbrook, he's back to having some efficiency issues again with four straight games under his season 44.2 FG%. Not coincidentally, he is taking more 3-pointers and he's not making them to pull him down, so that explains it. Westbrook is still feasting on the stat sheet in his triple-double categories, so he's doing just fine as DFS's best scorer. Not so much in nine-cat leagues, though.
Feb 24 - 10:58 PM

Russell Westbrook hit a buzzer-beating jumper to defeat the Kings 110-107 on Thursday, scoring 17 points with 15 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and seven turnovers in 40 minutes.

He was open for a 3-pointer near the top of the key for one of the flattest triples you'll see this season, but it still counts for three. Before the game-winner, this was the 33rd time he's posted a triple-double before the fourth quarter in his career, and he had plenty of time to spare with it coming at the 7:04 mark in third quarter. Westbrook is up to 97 career triple-doubles and he'll likely be at 100 in the next couple weeks. He's not going to have the historic year like his MVP 2016-17 campaign, but Westbrook has been better after a slow start a couple months ago.
Feb 23 - 1:13 AM

Russell Westbrook played again on Wednesday and hit 6-of-14 shots and 11-of-12 free throws for 23 points, 13 rebounds, 15 assists, one steal and two blocks in 37 minutes.

He was 0-for-4 from downtown, but notched his 17th triple-double of the season, while he's missed several others by just a point, rebound or assist. The Thunder are the currently the No. 5 seed in the West, but sit just one game ahead of the Nuggets, Pelicans and Blazers, while the Clippers are just 1.5 games back, and the Jazz are 2.5 games back. Westbrook is going to have to continue to play at a high level while they chase the Timberwolves and Spurs, and try to hold off all the pursuers. Westbrook's ankle appears to be fine and he'll hopefully be able to get a little rest during the All-Star break.
Feb 14 - 11:54 PM

Russell Westbrook was back from his sore ankle on Tuesday and hit 7-of-19 shots and 7-of-8 free throws for 21 points, seven rebounds, 12 assists and two steals in a 120-112 loss to the Cavaliers.

Westy missed his previous two games, but wasn't on a minutes limit tonight and is fully expected to play again on Wednesday. He didn't have a 3-pointer tonight and his shot wasn't exactly sharp, but at least he's back. Paul George managed to score 25 points with a nice line, even with Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony back from their two-game hiatus.
Feb 13 - 11:40 PM

Coach Billy Donovan said that both Russell Westbrook (ankle) and Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will play Tuesday vs. Cleveland.

Great news for Westbrook owners, as not only will Russ start on Tuesday, but coach Donovan also said that Westbrook will not have a minutes restriction. In addition, both Westbrook and Melo are expected to play Wednesday vs. Memphis as well. Make sure Russ is locked and loaded in fantasy lineups this evening. Raymond Felton will get bumped back to the bench as well as Patrick Patterson.
