Russell Westbrook

"People that's talking or saying whatever they need to say, they should try doing it and see how hard it is".

"I take pride in what I do", Westbrook stated firmly. "That's just what it is". If you don't want it, I'ma get it. Tymins found Westbrook's pursuit of rebounds didn't change significantly in blowouts, but his time between his rebounds became smaller when he got closer to his 10th board.

Paul George scored 40 points, Russell Westbrook clinched a triple-double average for the second straight season and the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 137-123 on Wednesday night.

Anthony has been an isolation specialist for most of his career, having the ball in his hand and his team clearing out so he can go one-on-one.

Averaging 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists in 34.6 minutes per contest, Westbrook's historic campaign ended appropriately with him hoisting the MVP trophy.

Westbrook said Wednesday that a lot of his focus with rebounding is to snare the ball and use his speed to instantly start transition opportunities for the Thunder.

Trump to skip South America summit, will send Pence
U.S. intelligence has so far been unable to determine how the attack was carried out and what the nerve agent used was. Russian Federation has deployed advanced air-defenses to Syria , and they're pretty much the top of the line.

Say what you want, but men lie, women lie, heck even children lie, but numbers do not-and the numbers say that the Thunder have an 80 percent winning record when The Brodie triple-doubles.

The win was critical - with a loss, the Thunder would have been a No. 8 seed and forced to play No. 1 seed Houston in the first round. I go out and do everything and I do it on a night-in, night-out basis. There's no other guard in the league that can get to loose balls on both ends of the floor like the reigning MVP. Getting a rebound, pushing out, getting it up quick, because you can't scout for that. "Nobody else do the same (expletive) I do every night".

Steven Adams scored 24 points and Corey Brewer added 17 for the Thunder, who matched a franchise record with 20 made 3-pointers.

Nick Collison says he'll make a decision on his future after the postseason.

"I think you realize you're not going to play forever". It's just him consistently playing well every night he's out there over long stretches of time. Colin thinks the voters should just admit they prefer the shiny new toy and stop trying to justify changing their criteria from season to season.
