Russell Westbrook Announcer Says He's 'Out Of His Cotton-Picking Mind'

Russell Westbrook Announcer Says He's 'Out Of His Cotton-Picking Mind'

On this night Westbrook needed 16 rebounds against the Grizzlies to become the first National Basketball Association player to average a triple-double in two straight seasons.

In the process, he became the first player in league history to average a triple-double in two different seasons.

It's only the third time in National Basketball Association history that someone has averaged a triple-double.

On Wednesday night, Westbrook finished his historic run in nearly record time - snagging the 16 remaining rebounds he needed before the end of the third quarter and finishing the game with a career-high 20.

The moment drew a standing ovation from the home crown in Oklahoma City.

So Westbrook grabbed 20 rebounds, a career high, to go with 19 assists and six points in a Thunder win.

While he won't win the MVP again this year, it's an wonderful individual accomplishment. The Thunder played 42 "clutch" games - within five points in the last five minutes - last season ... but finished with 46 of those games this season.

Thunder beat the Grizzlies, final score 137-123. You get numbers on a bad team or in a blowout game or whatever it is, but he shows the consistency every single night, going out and performing at a high level.

LOS ANGELES - Anthony Davis scored 28 points, Nikola Mirotic had a double-double and the Pelicans beat the Clippers to clinch their first playoff berth in three years.

Westbrook's rebound-assist-repeat barrage helped the Thunder run up a 27-point lead midway through the third quarter, but it didn't completely hold. "A great group of guys from last year, and this year, the support, everything they've done for me, I don't take it for granted".

Memphis remained in range in the fourth quarter but 3-pointers by Terrance Ferguson, George and Josh Huestis made it 136-116 with 1:16 remaining as the Thunder closed it out. I don't think nobody thinks twice about that.

Willie Cauley-Stein led Sacramento with 25 points and 10 rebounds. The next meaningful date is May 15, night of the Draft Lottery, and then on June 21 the 2018 NBA Draft. You need it, even if it's not very good and you already know how things turn out. "He's somebody I always looked up to, and it's a real pleasure to have him here".
