  • Russell Westbrook Records Tenth Triple Double In Win

    Miami Heat vs. Oklahoma City Thunder - Recap - March 22, 2015 - ESPN

    OKLAHOMA CITY -- The best part of Russell Westbrook's game on Sunday might have been his defense on Dwyane Wade. And that says a lot about his work on Wade.

    Westbrook had 12 points, 10 rebounds and 17 assists for his second consecutive triple-double, leading the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 93-75 victory over the Miami Heat.

    Westbrook committed six turnovers in his 10th triple-double of the season, but also had four steals and blocked two shots. The 17 assists matched a career high for the All-Star, one of the leading contenders for the NBA MVP award.

    Westbrook also helped shut down Wade after he made his first four shots. Wade finished with 12 points on 6-for-15 shooting.

    "Just denying, making it tough for him," Westbrook said. "He got going early, but as a team we did a good job after that of making him shoot tough shots."
