Westbrook has 35, triple-double as Thunder top Wizards in OT

The Thunder will have the next three days off before hosting the Pelicans on Sunday night.

Westbrook's roll only continued with his fifth straight triple-double, while dragging the rest of the mediocre, if not subpar, Thunder squad to an overtime victory against the Wizards on Wednesday night.

Westbrook produced 35 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists to notch his ninth triple-double of the season and the 46th of his career.

Westbrook averaged a triple-double through 20 games for the Thunder (12-8). Basketball Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson told ESPN that there's no guard that could match Westbrook in the NBA.

"Winning is sustainable", he said. "I try to find a way to insert myself throughout the game". With Westbrook now beating him in every statistical category (besides steals), Chris Paul may be falling behind Westbrook in the best point guard race.

Though Westbrook struggled early, Oklahoma City thrived despite it. Enes Kanter was solid off the bench yet again, totaling 14 points in only 15 minutes of game action. With eight seconds left in the fourth quarter, Westbrook hit a 3-pointer to force overtime.

Both Dion Waiters from Miami Heat and Marc Gasol from Memphis Grizzlies got 28 points and season-highs. "That's tough. Russ definitely puts a lot of pressure on the bigs when he's going downhill like that". I think we'll get rolling. The Thunder dominated the Knicks in the paint in the rebounding department, with a 63-47 difference. Noah only had 3 in 26 minutes. If he completes another 30-40 season, it will be his third straight and fourth overall, but if he sustains his current level of play, he'll become the first player ever in the 40-40 club.

October 28 vs. Phoenix: Scored a season-high 51 points and added 13 rebounds and 10 assists in a 113-110 overtime win over the Suns.

That is when the Wizards went on a run and tied the game at 84-84 heading into the fourth quarter.

"We had a chance", Brook said. They were quicker to the balls. Surprisingly, the Mavericks are the opposite, as they are last in the West with just 2 wins and 13 defeats. But he's not a head coach in the National Basketball Association. But to average this after 19 games is already a very rare feat and shows just how much talent and heart Westbrook has. Dwyane Wade, who was listed as doubtful after getting some dental work on Tuesday, scored 17 points, and Robin Lopez finished with 10 points, nine rebounds and a career-high eight blocked shots. Minnesota Timberwolves were led by Zach LaVine who scored 31 points and Karl Anthony-Towns with 18 points and 9 rebounds.
