Russell Westbrook continued his incredible statistical season on Friday with a 36 point / 18 assist / 12 rebound triple-double in an overtime win over the Denver Nuggets. Westbrook was an assist short on Wednesday and two rebounds short on Tuesday from a streak of 5 consecutive triple-doubles.
In the last 33 seasons, a 35/15/12 has only happened four times. Once by Michael Jordan, once by LeBron James, and twice in the last two weeks by Westbrook. Westbrook’s season stats are currently sitting at 32 points, 10.9 assists and 9.8 rebounds a game. We’re now a month into the season and his numbers haven’t showed any signs of coming back to Earth.
