Players in this post:
Earvin Johnson Russell Westbrook

Career high 17 assists in just 27 minutes. 12 of those 12 came in the first half and 10 of those 12 came in the 2nd quarter. If that wasn’t enough for your fanduel lineup, Russell Westbrook also had 21 points and 8 rebounds in a 25 point beatdown on the Nuggests.

“Russell’s at a high level, but he’s been playing this way for a long time, for a lot of years, and every year, like all the special players do, they come back a little bit better,” said Coach Scott Brooks.

The only other player in NBA history to pull off a 20/15/5 game in less than 30 minutes is Magic Johnson who did it twice.

With the reigning MVP out for atleast a week you can expect to see a lot more huge games like this so what I’m saying is no matter what he cost, put him in your daily fantasy league…and play Enes Kanter since he’s a steal at his price.
