Russell Westbrook sets unbelievable National Basketball Association triple-double record

Thunder Vs Grizzlies Preview Starting Lineups Odds Predictions TV Injuries | NBA 4/11/18

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook became the first player in National Basketball Association history to average a triple-double in multiple seasons when he pulled down his 16th rebound against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

So far this season, Westbrook has reached 16 or more rebounds six times, with Monday's 18 being a season-high.

Collison has spent his entire career with the Seattle Supersonics/Oklahoma City Thunder franchise, and has been a stalwart role player. Over the last two season, Westbrook is averaging 28.6 points, 10.3 rebounds and 10.3 assists through 160 games entering Wednesday.

Westbrook came out attacking the glass early, finishing the first half with 10 rebounds.

After Westbrook grabbed the 16th board, the crowd erupted in a standing ovation, and Westbrook's teammates applauded.

"A lot of people make jokes about, whatever, stat-padding or going to get rebounds".

What will be interesting to see is if he decides to just go for it and get the 16 rebounds needed, even if it requires moving teammates out of the way or purposely missing a shot to collect his own rebound. If people could f-- get 15 rebounds, they would. I'm tried of hearing the same old rebound-this, stealing rebounds, all this shit.

Some haters say that he is just stat-padding to average triple-doubles, well up until the last game of the 2017-18 season on April 11, Russell Westbrook has accumulated 25 triple-doubles and the Oklahoma City Thunder's record is 20-5 during those games.

"The game will tell you what you need to do", Westbrook said. I come out and play, and I get the ball faster than someone else gets to it.

Houston Rockets guard James Harden seems to be the leading candidate for the award with his side finishing the season as the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference while Cleveland Warriors star LeBron James is also in the running. The line is massive, but I think the Thunder get it done here in a blowout.
