Oklahoma City Announcer Says Russell Westbrook 'Out of his Cotton Picking Mind'

The Oklahoma City Thunder guard got there, snaring more than the 16 rebounds he needed in a win over the Grizzlies to become the first National Basketball Association player to average a triple-double in multiple seasons, but his pursuit of the feat this time was accompanied by distinctly less hullabaloo than when he accomplished it in the 2016-17 campaign.

This season, Westbrook is averaging 25.6 points, 10.1 assists and 9.9 rebounds per game. The triple-double run was enough to get Westbrook the KIA MVP last season will it be enough this year?

Westbrook's memorable rebound came on an air ball from Kobi Simmons in the third quarter of the Oklahoma City Thunder's game against the Grizzlies. This prompted a standing ovation from the hometown fans who showed their affection for "The Brodie". Oklahoma City grabbed a comfortable 20-point lead by halftime and never let up.

But the bad has often accompanied the good in the Thunder's 48-34 season - one win better than last year's campaign. 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.

Adams scored 24-points in Oklahoma's 137-123 National Basketball Association win over Memphis.

"I'm very, very blessed to go out and play every single night", Westbrook said in a postgame interview with Fox Sports Oklahoma.

Comey: John Kelly Called Trump 'Dishonorable' for Firing Me
" Comey is a liar and a leaker and his misconduct led both Republicans and Democrats to call for his firing", McDaniel said. As part of its effort, the RNC is also distributing talking points to Trump surrogates to further its case against Comey.

Steven Adams scored 24 points and Corey Brewer added 17 for the Thunder, who matched a franchise record with 20 made three-pointers. If it's another team, you know, these guys want to stick.

Westbrook had one of the most unusual first halves of his career to help the Thunder take a 20-point lead.

"I thought we did a great job of not falling into just being complacent". It just so happened that they played well as well. 36 points and 7 rebounds for the former Oregon Duck. The next meaningful date is May 15, night of the Draft Lottery, and then on June 21 the 2018 NBA Draft.

"The game will tell you what you need to do", Westbrook said. "He's somebody I always looked up to, and it's a real pleasure to have him here".

It was obvious that he wanted every board on Wednesday night.
