Russell Westbrook owns NBA’s last four 20-point, 20-assist games
Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook continues to be one of the best all around players in the NBA. They may have lost, 154-147, to the San Antonio Spurs in OT, but the All-Star guard was able to put up monster numbers yet again.
Westbrook had 24 points, 24 assists, and 13 rebounds in the loss. He also shot 50 percent from the floor. What’s more impressive? Well..

Despite starting the season with four straight losses, OKC found its groove behind Westbrook and fellow All-Star Paul George. They now hold the third spot in the Western Conference with a 25-16 record.
But as impressive as Brodie has been, OKC is in a three-game losing streak, allowing the Washington Wizards and the Minnesota Timberwolves, two teams that are out of the playoff picture at the moment, to steal a win against them. But OKC’s been here before. They know how to bounce back from these slumps and be back on their winning ways.
The Thunder will have another shot at the Spurs on Sunday. Before facing teams like the Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Lakers, and New York Knicks, who have been struggling to win as of late. Then they will have a crack at some of the East’s best teams, starting with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Milwaukee Bucks.
Their schedule should allow OKC to rack up easy wins and tighten their grip on the third spot in the West standings. But they will also be tested in some of these games.
It is up to Westbrook to lead this team yet again, as they try to bounce back, like what they’ve been doing all season.
