Russell Westbrook has became only the second player in National Basketball Association history to average a triple-double for an entire season on Friday night, but he could not do enough to stop his Oklahoma City Thunder from losing to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday.
Westbrook left the game with less than three minutes to play, finishing the night with 23 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists, two shy of breaking Robertson's single-season record for triple-doubles. He finished with 23 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists on 6 of 25 shooting. He also clinched the assurance of averaging at least 10 points per game for the season against the Suns after scoring 26 against them back on December 17, which got him to exactly 820 points for the year. The Thunder have 3 games remaining on their schedule. Only Oscar Robinson playing for the Cincinnati Royals (now Sacremento Kings) in the 1961-62 season has previously managed this.
October 28: 51 points, 10 assists and 13 rebounds. Carter recalled when some suggested Kidd could reach Robertson's record and remembered a playoff series where Kidd averaged a triple-double over six or seven games. He's now averaging 31.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists in 34.8 minutes per game. I think there was maybe a stoppage of play around 3:45, 3:40, somewhere around that point.
One could sense early that singular history would have to wait for another night.
Fourth quarter, we had such a big lead and the only thing he needed was assists, so the whole game plan changed.
Boban Marjanovic, Detroit's 7-foot-3 backup centre, led the Pistons with a career-high 27 points with 12 rebounds off the bench and Stanley Johnson hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 32.4 seconds left before adding two free throws to lift the Pistons to the 114-109 victory Friday night. The Cavs now lead the East by one game over Boston and own the tiebreaker between the two clubs with three games to play for each team.
Westbrook should get triple-double #42 tonight to break the record for most triple-doubles in a season. Especially considering that he was looking like one of the best players in the league just a year ago when Kevin Durant was still putting up buckets in OKC. However, sitting at sixth in the Western Conference, the Thunder as a team have not achieved enough for their star player to win the MVP award.
He went on to have an uneven day, thoroughly disappointing with his vertical leap but turning some heads with a 4.5 40-Yard Dash. Leonard Fournette is what he is - he's a freaking superstar in the making.
