For the Grizzlies, a Last Loss and a Lesson from Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook made National Basketball Association history on Wednesday, securing 20 rebounds in the final game of the season to become the first player to ever average a triple-double in multiple seasons. It ultimately sprung him to securing his second consecutive season averaging a triple-double for the entire year.

After averaging a triple-double and setting a single-season National Basketball Association record with 42 triple-doubles last season, he added 25 more this season, and the Thunder won 20 of those games.

With a tally of 18 rebounds, the 29-year-old then required just 16 rebounds against the Grizzlies to accomplish the feat and he did just that even before the third quarter was done with as the Thunder emerged 137-123 winners.

But it was star teammate Russell Westbrook who grabbed the spotlight with 20 rebounds and 19 assists.

"It's awesome last year everybody tracked it, and this year nobody did", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.

Meanwhile, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been in a bit of a slump with five losses in their last nine games but they will be aiming for a third straight win after blowing past the Heat in a 115-93 road win on Monday.

Adams scored 24-points in Oklahoma's 137-123 National Basketball Association win over Memphis. Brewer was fouled on a 3-pointer in the fourth quarter and left the game for good with a knee sprain.

Bleacher Report cut together a video of every Westbrook rebound from Wednesday night, making it relatively clear that while many of his boards came from his effort to be in the right place at the right time, his absurd total was the product of a team effort.

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

Grizzlies end the year with a record of 22-60.

But, when you make a cotton reference about a black guy.it's not usually well received. I thought we played phenomenal tonight. 36 points and 7 rebounds for the former Oregon Duck.

"He's just such an unselfish, unbelievable guy, and somebody I always looked up to since I been here", Westbrook said of Collison.

"It's tough, but we're in a great part of the season right now", George said. I go out and do everything and I do it on a night-in, night-out basis.
