Hustle, Muscle Guarantee Russell Will Average a Triple Double

On a night when Russell Westbrook became the second player in National Basketball Association history to secure a seasonal triple-double average, the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder were overwhelmed by an energetic Phoenix Suns squad, 120-94. Westbrook is averaging 31.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game and leads the National Basketball Association in scoring.

He has 41 triple-doubles this campaign, tied for most in a season with Robertson.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have won 10 of their last 14 games and they will be gunning for a third straight win after sneaking past the Grizzlies in a 103-100 win on Wednesday. "I just play, man, honestly".

October 28: 51 points, 10 assists and 13 rebounds.

"I want to see him reach history", Booker said. We got the win. "When things like that happen, he's at his best on the road when people are booing and going for the other team".

Suns shooting guard Devin Booker, who had 21 of his game-high 37 points in the fourth quarter, said he took it personally that the Talking Stick Resort Arena crowd cheered so enthusiastically for Westbrook. On the bright side, Westbrook clinched that he will average a triple-double for the season. The production that Russ crams into such a small amount of time is the separator between the two seasons; whether he's efficient of not, Westbrook's putting up numbers that 99.9 percent of the league can't get unless they play 40 minutes.

"Yeah we were up 20 and we knew he needed two assists", Booker said.

"Everybody wants him to get a triple-double", center Enes Kanter said. But I did everything possible just to recover and just come in today and felt good. They will be shackled by a franchise-record 13-game losing streak when they face the Thunder. "He was phenomenal down the stretch". And while Westbrook was stuck in neutral, the Suns sped away. The 71 first-half points (on 61.4 percent shooting) were a season-high, besting the 68 they scored against the Lakers on February 15. Booker had six points in the final 1:59, including a driving layup with 2.1 seconds left to put the Suns up 32-19.

Phoenix, meanwhile, shot 61 per cent in the first half, led by Warren's 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting, to Oklahoma City's 39 per cent and led 71-48 at the halfway stage. Still with only four games left in this regular season. Westbrook was sitting on 16 points, 10 rebounds and six assists at the time. He had collected them by the early part of the third quarter. But the Suns ended the quarter on an 18-6 run of their own and restored their lead to 23 points at on a 95-72 on a Derrick Jones Jr. jumper with 0.2 of a second left.
