Ice Cold Russell Westbrook Forces OT, Then Outscores Wizards 14-10 In OT
With less than 16 seconds left in regulation, a struggling (7 of 28 from the field) Russell Westbrook drained his only 3-pointer of the game to force overtime against John Wall and the Wizards. In the extra session, Beastbrook outscored the Wizards 14-10 and led the Thunder to their 4th straight victory.
“I thought we did a good job until overtime on Westbrook,” Said Westbrook’s former coach Scott Brooks. “He’s hard to stop. He’s a terrific basketball player playing at a high level — another triple-double — but I thought we did a pretty good job of containing him most of the night.”
It was also his 4th straight triple-double, 9th of the season and 46th of his career. The triple-double also moved him above LeBron James for the 6th spot on the triple-double leaderboard and he did it in just 607 games, compared to LeBron’s 1001.
