Russell Westbrook doesn’t ‘give a fu**’ about historic triple-double in loss to Rockets

Russell Westbrook was not at all impressed with hanging a 51-point triple-double against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night, but rather frustrated that his 41-minute effort resulted in yet another loss.

The MVP frontrunner tallied 10 rebounds, 13 assists, and four steals, but had an awful time trying to maintain a three-point lead at the start of the fourth quarter.

“I don’t give a fuck about the line,” Westbrook told reporters post-game. “We lost.”

With no one willing to step up down the stretch, the 6-foot-3 guard was, as TNT color commentator Reggie Miller noted during the broadcast, a “one-man band” — teeing off three-pointer after three-pointer to try and get back the lead the Thunder relinquished.

Westbrook was a poor 17-of-43 from the field and a feeble 2-of-11 from deep, unable to capitalize on the plus-12 offensive rebound advantage his team had on the Rockets.
