Russell Westbrook’s Coast-to-Coast Throwdown
- Updated: March 5, 2015
Russell Westbrook has officially entered fantasy land. The man is going straight-up BONKERS. Last night’s performance against the Philadelphia 76ers is only the latest example.
For those who haven’t been paying attention, Westbrook recorded his fourth straight TRIPLE-DOUBLE last night against the Sixers. This performance was his first wearing a protective mask following a fracture to a bone in his face. He shrugged off any discomfort from the new clear protective apparatus to the tune of 49 points, 16 boards and 10 assists. Just. Nuts. Westbrook is the first to put four consecutive triple double performances since some guy named Jordan back in 1989.
Russell is also making plays like above. Coast-to-coast in seconds flat followed by a violent two-handed slam. Right now, it’s Westbrook’s World, and we should all be happy we can simply exist in it as observers.
