The Oklahoma City Thunder are in the midst of a four-game winning streak and have climbed up in the Western Conference standings with their 12-8 record. Their recent success is mostly credited to superstar point guard Russell Westbrook, who is averaging a triple-double on the season.
Even at only 6-foot-3, the 28-year-old UCLA product is averaging double figures in rebounding – more than even OKC’s center, Enes Kanter, has per game.
Asked about his teammate’s ridiculous rebounding rate, Kanter only had good things to say, acknowledging how great Westbrook has been this season for the Thunder. He also jokingly said that he might box him out to get more rebounds under his name.

He may have joked about it, but Kanter definitely does not mind seeing their point guard dominate the rebounding for the team as long as they continue to win.
