Russell Westbrook became the first player in NBA history to record a triple-double while not missing a shot from the field or the free throw line on Wednesday night against the 76ers. Westbrook finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists in a 122-97 win. He was 6-for-6 from the field and made 6 free throws. Here’s what Russ had to say when he found out about his “perfect” triple-double.
Calling it a “perfect” triple-double is a bit misleading because he turned the ball over 5 times. Still, here’s how T.J. McConnell described the job of guarding Westbrook.
T.J. McConnell on guarding Westbrook: “He averages a triple-double for Christ’s sake, so it’s tough for us to stop him.”
