Thunder Throttle Lakers, Remain Unbeaten
Russell Westbrook is on a tear like the NBA has never seen before. Westbrook notched another triple-double in Oklahoma City’s 113-96 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
Westbrook finished with 33 points, 16 assists, and 12 rebounds in the win. His second triple-double of the season. It makes Westbrook the first player in NBA history to start a season with 100 points, 30 assists, and 30 rebounds. Westbrook narrowly missed his third triple-double of the season against the 76ers coming an assist short of it.
Westbrook has some help though, Steven Adams dropped 14 points and grabbed 12 boards. Victor Oladipo added 20 points. Enes Kanter contributed 16 off the bench in the win. Four Thunder players finished in double figures.
The Thunder skipped on the slow starts they’ve had this season too. OKC never found themselves in a double digit hole like the first two games of the year.
Next up for the Thunder they begin a west coast swing. They square off with the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday and then the Golden State Warriors on Thursday.
