Hawks Vs Thunder Preview Starting Lineups Odds Predictions TV Injuries | NBA 3/13/18

Grant responded in a huge way, scoring 15 of his 20 points in the second half to go with five rebounds and two drawn charges, taking his tally to 17 on the season.

849: The Thunder have outscored their opponents by a total of 849 points when Westbrook records a triple-double. Westbrook had the Russian doll of milestones to achieve: 100 career triple-doubles, a round number made up of round numbers.

"Being able to be a part of that, be alongside him, like I said, it's a special moment", Anthony, a probable Hall of Famer who has previously joked about having only two career triple-doubles, said.

Last night's stat line marked Westbrook's third consecutive triple-double and his 21st of the season.

Russell Westbrook recording yet another triple-double stat-line, no longer comes as a surprise as it has become nearly a nightly habit for him.

Westbrook has turned the art of the triple-double into something that looks like it can be done easily. However, the Thunder did already report that George would be reevaluated Wednesday once the team returned home to Oklahoma City, so another update will still likely come once that evaluation has been completed. "Only the Sacramento Kings (267), Los Angeles Lakers (258), Boston Celtics (203), Philadelphia 76ers (140), Golden State Warriors (128) and Brooklyn Nets (104) have more than Westbrook's 100".

The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard now has more than double the number of triple-doubles than the next-best National Basketball Association franchise since coming into the league during the 2008-09 season.

"I try to read and react and see what teams are doing defensively, and obviously find the ways to make the game easy for my teammates", Westbrook said. "We're going to closely monitor it, be cautious", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said". Westbrook whipped a nifty, lefty pass to Jerami Grant for a right-corner 3 seconds later. In 61 minutes over four games, the Russ-PG-Melo-Brewer-Adams lineup has a net rating of 18.0, with both an elite offense and stingy defense. OKC will have to play the Raptors and Celtics on the road, as well as the Blazers, Warriors, and Rockets.

"Certain guys in the league have to do something to impact the game".
