Russell Westbrook turned in his ninth triple-double of the season during a 126-115 overtime win over the Wizards on Wednesday, scoring 35 points with 14 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, five turnovers and one 3-pointer.
He is tied in triple-doubles with the entire league combined this season. Westbrook is also just the third player to average a triple-double for a calendar month with at least 10 games in that span. He went bonkers in overtime with 14 points thanks to his ridiculous 70.4 usage rate in that time. Not surprisingly, he's leading the NBA in usage rate at 40.3 to go with his triple-double average on the season. He'll look for his fifth straight trip-dub against the Pelicans on Sunday.

Russell Westbrook scored 27 points, grabbed 18 rebounds, and dished out 14 assists in 36 minutes.

Westbrook went 9-of-23 from the field and 2-of-3 beyond the arc in Monday night’s win against the Knicks, the third straight for the Thunder. He recorded his eighth triple-double of the season just 20 minutes into the game and is now on pace for roughly 32 triple-doubles. He is the only other player aside from Oscar Roberson to average a triple-double this late into the season. The Thunder’s offense continues to funnel through Westbrook as he leads the team with a 40.2 percent usage rate and accounts for 54.5 percent of the teams assists. He should continue to post huge numbers on this offense.
Nov 28 - 10:17 PM

Russell Westbrook posted another triple-double during a 106-88 win over the Pistons on Saturday, scoring 17 points with 13 rebounds, 15 assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers.

This is just too easy for him. He tied LeBron James with his 44th triple-double of his career and did it with 395 fewer games. Westbrook also passed Fat Lever for sixth all-time and trails Larry Bird by 15. Coming off an 18-dime game, Westbrook has back-to-back 15-plus assists games for the first time in his career. He also just missed averaging 10.0 boards per game by just one board tonight, so he's averaging 31.2 points, 11.2 dimes and 9.94 boards on the season. If he gets 11 rebounds on Monday against the Knicks, he'll be averaging a triple-double for the season.
Nov 26 - 11:43 PM

Russell Westbrook piled up a season-high 18 assists during an overtime win in Denver on Friday, adding 36 points (9-of-25 FGs, 15-of-17 FTs), 12 rebounds, three 3-pointers, one block and seven turnovers.

Westbrook is the only player since at least 1983-84 to post a minimum of 36/18/12 in a game. He's scored 30+ points in eight straight games, a streak that was in danger of being snapped until he caught fire in the fourth quarter, and his fantasy owners are reveling in ridiculous production on a nightly basis. There's no reason to think he'll slow down.
Nov 26 - 12:04 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 31 points in a 116-101 loss to the Kings on Wednesday, adding 11 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

He made 16-of-19 from the line in the loss. After the Thunder started the year 6-1, they've now gone just 2-7 to get them to .500. Westbrook is a one-man band and is on pace to set the record for usage rate with his 40.4 this season. With his 10.5 assists per game and top-ranked rebounding rate for starting NBA guards to go with that, his stat potential is ridiculous on any given night.
Nov 24 - 1:36 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 34 points with 13 assists, eight rebounds, two steals and four treys in Tuesday's 111-109 loss to the Lakers.

He hit 13-of-30 shots from the field and 4-of-5 from the line, but turned the ball over eight times. It's hard to complain about a PG who's nearly averaging a triple-double, but the only thing really holding him back is the turnovers -- he's averaging 6.2 TOs over his last five games and has turned the ball over at least seven times in six games this season.
Nov 23 - 1:34 AM

Russell Westbrook posted his fifth triple-double of the season on Sunday with 31 points, 15 assists, 11 rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers in an overtime loss vs. Indiana.

The Pacers packed the paint tonight, making it difficult for Westbrook to drive to the rim with impunity, but he adjusted his game and wound up with 11 assists in the first half alone. He committed seven turnovers and shot just 13-of-34 from the field, but those are categorical caveats his owners should have come to terms with on draft day.
Nov 20 - 10:28 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 30 points in his fourth triple-double of the season during a 124-105 win over the Nets on Friday, adding 11 rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

He was just ridiculous in the first half, scoring 20 points on 9-of-10 from the field. Westbrook reclaimed his lead for triple-doubles this season and he was able to get his assists per game back up to double digits at 10.1. He also has 41 career triple-doubles and is two behind Fat Lever and LeBron James for sixth all time. He's going to climb those ranks this year and is just 0.4 rebounds per game from averaging a triple-double with his 31.7 points per game.
Nov 19 - 1:09 AM

Russell Westbrook threw down a vicious left-handed dunk over Clint Capela to seal a 105-103 victory on Wednesday, finishing with 30 points, nine assists, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

Westbrook could have just held the ball and forced Houston to foul him, with OKC leading by three points and 5.5 seconds remaining at the time of his dunk, but where's the fun in that? He was in wrecking-ball mode and his efforts helped overcome a sloppy finish for the Thunder, who were coming off a four-game losing streak. WB committed his usual six turnovers, but he made 9-of-20 FGs and 10-of-11 FTs and continues to do it all for both his team and fantasy owners.
Nov 16 - 11:05 PM

Russell Westbrook hit 11-of-21 shots and 11-of-12 free throws for 33 points, 15 rebounds, eight assists and seven turnovers in Monday's loss to the Pistons.

In addition to the TOs, he didn't have a 3-pointer, steal or block, and the Thunder, who were once 4-0, are now 6-5 and losers for four straight games. Westbrook's going to have to start getting some help from his teammates, as Steven Adams and Victor Oladipo, among others, have been pretty inconsistent over the losing streak. But as long as he's rolling, he's as must-start as anyone in the league not named James Harden.
Nov 14 - 10:43 PM

Russell Westbrook posted another huge triple-double on Sunday with 41 points, 16 assists and 12 rebounds, making 14-of-21 FGs and 13-of-18 FTs without any 3-pointers, steals or blocks.

It's unclear what's more garish this season -- Westbrook's stats or his clothes. The Thunder have now lost three games in a row, but their record won't have any impact on Westbrook's fantasy appeal. He's up to three triple-doubles already this season, and has fallen one assist shy on two other occasions.
Nov 13 - 9:50 PM

Russell Westbrook made 9-of-25 from the field for 29 points during a 110-108 loss to the Clippers on Friday, adding 14 rebounds, nine assists, one steal, four turnovers and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

The amount of usage on Westbrook is crazy. On the season, he's posted a 41.3 usage rate at a 103.8 possessions per 48 minute pace for his 34 minutes of action. No player has ever turned in a 40 usage rate and qualified for scoring, and he's also currently first for total rebounding rate in the NBA among starting guards. Oh and he's at 9.4 assists per game. On the downside, his lack of efficiency and high turnovers actually has him outside the top 20 for standard leagues. He's still a monster and is one of a kind.
Nov 12 - 1:30 AM

Russell Westbrook had 36 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in a losing effort on Wednesday, adding two blocks and one steal in 39 minutes.

The Thunder suffered their first home loss on the heels of consecutive wins vs. the Wolves and Heat -- Westbrook drained 15-of-18 free throws, but he was just 9-of-26 from the field and committed eight turnovers. At some point this season his gaudy lines will be so predictable that we won't even bother discussing a night like this -- just business as usual.
Nov 9 - 11:13 PM

Russell Westbrook hit just 5-of-16 shots and 1-of-6 3-pointers for a season-low 14 points, five rebounds, 11 assists and five more turnovers in Monday's win over the Heat.

If you were sad you drafted James Harden over Westbrook at your draft, don't be. Westbrook is now averaging 26 points, 6.8 rebounds, 10.0 assists, 1.6 steals, 2.4 3-pointers and 6.0 TOs over his last five games, and we still have concerns that he's going to burn himself out while trying to carry his team every night. But he's due for another explosion any day now, and it could come against the Raptors on Wednesday.
Nov 7 - 11:15 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 28 points in a 112-92 win over the Wolves on Saturday, adding six rebounds, eight assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in just 28 minutes.

OKC looked awesome and got right back on track after the ugly loss in Oakland. When Westbrook is hitting jumpers, it's going to be awfully tough to beat OKC. He had no problem getting into the lane and he made some terrific passes when the defense collapsed on him. Westbrook could've had a triple-double, but he didn't play at all in the fourth quarter. He'll take on the Heat at home on Monday and look for another monster stat line.
