Today, Russell Westbrook really did it. against the Denver Nuggets, Westbrook not only recorded his 42nd triple-double of the season, but he hit a game-winning 35-foot three-pointer at the buzzer to give him 50 points. Westbrook passes the previous mark set by Oscar Robertson in the 1961-62 season.Westbrook finally had his chance to prove that he was one of the NBA’s premier stars, and he didn’t disappoint – leading an undermanned Oklahoma City Thunder team that had no business making the playoffs to a 45+ win season.
