"I always fight getting used to it", said Nick Collison, who has played with Westbrook for 10 seasons. He averaged 21.9 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.0 steals, and 3.1 3-pointers during his first - and possibly last - regular season with the Thunder.

The clip started gaining traction as Westbrook was on the verge of making history. Some that he may have taken from a teammate. "We've got to be able to close out". I thought we played phenomenal tonight, it just so happened that they played well as well.

Name SearchWatch Service' Steven Adams was taking advantage of Gasol's absence to have his way around the basket, I was looking for hopeful signs.

I get that it was a rough year. "I got to rebound more.' As long as we get the rebound, we all cool with that".

"I just caught a rhythm early", George said. Which is honestly pretty hard to deny.


"A lot people make jokes about whatever, stat-padding or going to get rebounds", Westbrook said, as per ESPN. He grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds and handed out 19 assists.

Once Westbrook and company returned and got re-settled in the closing minutes, they ripped off eight straight points to build a 17-point lead with 1:30 to go, thanks to a George second chance dunk, a Terrance Ferguson three-pointer and another George triple.

"Everybody wants to be talking, I'm exhausted of hearing the same old rebound this, stealing rebounds, all this [expletive]", Westbrook said. The Grizzlies lost 60 or more games four times in Vancouver before relocating for the 2001-02 campaign. I come out and play, and I get the ball faster than someone else gets it. That's what it is. I'm not saying you want to be up 40, but there's no reason we can't be up. In the twilight of his career, it's undoubtedly cool for him to hear an MVP like Westbrook give him a shoutout for his leadership and teamwork.

He secured his 16th rebound at the 9:18 mark of the third quarter.

Westbrook's achievement is only the third time in National Basketball Association history someone has averaged a triple-double - Oscar Robertson did it in 1961-62, and Westbrook did it previous year. "We did a great job of not falling in to just being complacent". But it doesn't seem like he's slowing down anytime soon.
