On Wednesday night, Russell Westbrook had himself a ballgame. Playing their fellow second-tier contenders, the Los Angeles Clippers, Russ scored 25 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished 20 assists in the first 20-assist triple-double since Magic Johnson did it in 1988. Numbers don’t really capture his dominance, however, so here’s the highlight reel again:
It’s a good thing that we’re not so bogged down in numbers, because if we were, then video of Russ’s 12th assist would ruin the whole thing. You can clearly see that Steven Adams actually made the final pass to Kevin Durant here, even though Westbrook got the credit in the box score.
