“For us to win, my job is to be able to make sure everybody is getting the ball and make sure everybody is in the position to score, and that was one of those nights,” Westbrook said after he recorded his 2nd triple double of the season in a 104-97 win without Kevin Durant.
“It was a special game for him,” coach Scott Brooks said. “He was attacking, he was making plays, guys were making shots for him and he was rebounding the ball.”
The monster triple-double which made a lot of Fan Duel players happy last night was the 10th of his career.
In Durant’s absence, Dion Waiters also stepped up big and scored 24 points (career-high with the Thunder) and shot 60% (1st time over 50% in his last 8 games).
