Russell Westbrook needs 16 rebounds.
While Westbrook scored only six points, his figures gave him a triple-double average for the second successive season.
"I'm very, very thankful and blessed, man, to go out and compete", Westbrook said. It doesn't take more than a glance at his halftime box score to see how singularly focused he was. I don't take going out on the floor and competing for granted. As a one-man show a year ago, he was all over the media while smashing records. It only makes sense that it would this season as well.
George had a rough shooting stretch post-All-Star break, shooting 37 percent overall and 30.2 percent from 3-point range in 22 games entering Wednesday's game. Maybe we should ask James Harden.
Russell Westbrook is the only player to average multiple triple-double seasons. But this time, the accomplishment is going to be a little tainted in the eyes of some.
The Grizzlies haven't been in the best of form and they don't have a starting lineup most people can name, but they're capable of the upset with this being the last game of the season. He was clearly gunning for rebounds. He went to the break with a stat line of one point, 11 rebounds and 12 assists and hauled in five more boards in the opening three minutes of the third quarter. He only took two shots. If people could f-ing get 15 rebounds, they would. "We've got to move forward, but I think he'll be fine".
What's wrong with that?

"I just caught a rhythm early", George asaid.
Although the Thunder have already punched its ticket into the Western Conference Playoffs, the team is still fighting for playoff position in the loaded wild wild west.
While the stakes weren't high, there were stakes in the game.
Westbrook said Wednesday that a lot of his focus with rebounding is to snare the ball and use his speed to instantly start transition opportunities for the Thunder.
So- does he have a chance at winning MVP again?
For Grizzlies players, it's all about leaving a lasting impression on management for next season. Considering the fact that Paul George and Carmelo Anthony played alongside him, it's remarkable that he was still able to accomplish the feat.
