Westbrook Averaging Triple-Double Through 19 Games


Following yet another feat of scoring, passing and crashing the glass, (Russell) Westbrook is now averaging a triple-double (30.9 points, 11.3 assists and 10.3 rebounds). Oscar Robertson is the only player in NBA history to finish a season with such an average dating back to 1962.

Of course, it’s way too early in the season to draw any parallels to The Big O, but that Westbrook is putting up such a stat-line, even through 19 games, is remarkable, if seemingly unsustainable.
