Russell Westbrook first since Jordan with four straight triple-doubles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989 to deliver four straight triple-doubles, scoring a career-high 49 points, grabbing a career-high 16 rebounds and dishing out 10 assists in his team's 123-118 overtime win over the 76ers Wednesday.

"It's definitely a blessing, but more importantly, I think it's important that we're winning," Westbrook said after the game, per the Associated Press.

Westbrook missed his team's previous game after undergoing facial surgery and came back even stronger Wednesday, going 16 for 33 from the field and 16 for 20 from the free-throw line en route to arguably the best performance of his career, all while wearing a protective mask.

"It was OK," Westbrook said of the mask. "It was weird. Had to keep wiping it. It was a total big process of trying to keep everything from fogging up. That's not going to stop me. My job is to come out and trying to lead my team."

Westbrook also chipped in three steals and one block in 42 minutes of action Wednesday. He's delivered five 40-point performances in his last 13 games. The Thunder move on to face the Bulls Thursday.


Thunder PG Russell Westbrook not restricted Wednesday

(3/4/2015) Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook will not be under a minutes restriction Wednesday against the 76ers, The Oklahoman reports.

Westbrook took a knee to the face Friday and underwent surgery to repair a fracture in his cheekbone. He missed one game while recovering and is set to wear a protective mask in Wednesday's game. Westbrook has averaged 26.5 points, 8.1 assists and 6.8 rebounds in 48 games.

The Thunder are 15-point favorites at home against the 76ers Wednesday.


Thunder's Russell Westbrook confirms he's playing vs. 76ers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Thunder guard Russell Westbrook confirmed to reporters that he will indeed return to the floor Wednesday night against the 76ers, per the Oklahoman.

Westbrook was involved in a scary collision on Friday, where he took a knee to the face that left a dent on his head. He underwent surgery to repair a fractured cheekbone on Saturday, and after missing Sunday's game against the Lakers, the star point guard is set to return with a mask to protect the injury.

With Kevin Durant sidelined, Westbrook is enjoying his best numbers in the NBA and is making a late case for the MVP award. In February, he averaged 31.2 points, 9.1 rebounds and 10.3 assists, becoming the first player since Oscar Robertson to average that level of production for a month. Through 45 games, Westbrook is averaging a career best in points (26.5), assists (8.1) and rebounds (6.8) this season.

Oklahoma City is a 15-point home favorite against Philadelphia, per VegasInsider.com.
