Russell Westbrook Feels Blessed to Have Family in the Stands Especially in the Capital Washington DC

Russell Westbrook

Washington Wizards point guard Russell Westbrook has enlisted his name into the NBA’s record book one more time. On that note, he added, feeling great having the family by his side during the record-making night.

Westbrook has been phenomenal for the last few games, and he led the Wizards to a swipe up by 119-107 last night against Oklahoma City Thunder. Although Westbrook could not score many points, he then covered it up by the rebounds and assists. He scored 13 points with 11 rebounds and 17 assists. With that score, Westbrook becomes the first NBA player in history to record a multiple triple-double against all 30 NBA teams.

Westbrook appeared in a post-game interview to share his feelings. Russell was happy to see the family member on the stand. He conveyed, “It’s such an ironic year for everybody and especially for DC so I must do it to be able to get some people in the arena.”

Triple-double king: Russell Westbrook

Last night’s accomplishment marked eight straight triple-doubles and 26th of the 2020-21 season. The 32-year-old now recorded at least 26 triple-doubles in four different seasons, and eventually, he owned the most triple-doubles in NBA history.

The Wizard guard now boasts of 171 triple-doubles and just ten shy of the former Cincinnati Royals player Oscar Robertson’s 181 records. Both Westbrook and Robertson share the record of having averaged a triple-double over an entire season.

This season Westbrook is averaging 21.9 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 10.8 assists per game. With Russell’s incredible performance, Wizards are now at 24-23 and secured the tenth place on the table. However, they still have hope to become the final playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.
