OKLAHOMA CITY — Russell Westbrook became the first player to average a triple-double for a season more than once – finishing with six points, 20 rebounds and 19 assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 137-123 on Wednesday night.
“I’m very, very thankful and blessed, man, to go out and compete,” Westbrook said. “Like I’ve said many, many times, I don’t take this game for granted. I don’t take going out on the floor and competing for granted.”
Paul George scored 40 points going 13 of 20 shots, including eight of 14 3-pointers. Steven Adams scored 24 points and Corey Brewer added 17 for the Thunder, who matched a franchise record with 20 made 3-pointers.
