Washington Wizards PG Russell Westbrook ended with 23 points (6-15 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 9-12 FT), 15 rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 40 minutes during Sunday's 115-110 victory over Charlotte.
Westbrook ended the regular season in typical fashion, as the Wizards secured the eighth seed and a date with the Celtics in the first round of the play-in tournament. The former MVP has been simply incredible for his team down the stretch and has them poised to make an unexpected playoff push. While he is not in this season's MVP discussion, it can be argued that he has been as important to his team as anyone else in the league.
Washington Wizards PG Russell Westbrook collected 34 points (12-28 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 15 assists, five rebounds and three steals in a 120-116 loss to the Hawks on Wednesday.
Westbrook recorded 15-plus assists for the sixth consecutive game, though his streak of consecutive triple-doubles ended at five Wednesday. The guard has maintained his high assist totals even while looking for his shot slightly more with Bradley Beal (hamstring) missing the team's last two games. Westbrook has averaged 25.2 points, 18.2 assists and 14.5 rebounds across his last six contests.
Russell Westbrook dropped 28 points (10-22 FG, 3-7 3PT, 5-5FT), 13 rebounds, and 21 assists in 125-124 loss to the Hawks.
Westbrook filled up the stat sheet in a historic night for the 32-year-old UCLA product, passing Oscar Robertson on the NBA's all time triple double list. His 182 triple doubles are the most in NBA history, a record many saw as unbreakable. Westbrook has notched a triple-double in five straight games, and as such, remains a "set it and forget it" player in fantasy.
Washington Wizards PG Russell Westbrook posted 13 points (5-19 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 17 rebounds, 17 assists and a steal across 44 minutes in Thursday's overtime win over the Raptors.
Westbrook nailed the 180th triple-double of his career with under three minutes left in the fourth quarter after converting a layup, and he's now just one away from tying Oscar Robertson for the all-time lead in that statistic. The star point guard has been on an absolute tear of late and has accomplished a triple-double in all but four games since the beginning of April (21 appearances). He will have a shot at making history Saturday on the road against the Pacers.
Washington Wizards PG Russell Westbrook finished with 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-4 FT), 24 assists, 21 rebounds, one steal, and one block in 39 minutes during Monday's 154-141 victory over the Pacers.
on Monday against the Pacers, Westbrook went off notching 14 points, 21 boards, and 24 assists in a massive win over the Pacers. The veteran guard tallied a career-high in boards and matched a career-high in assists. His play continues to show why he is the number one fantasy asset there is currently.
