Westbrook Wins Player of the Week

Over the course of last week, Russell Westbrook led the Thunder to a 3-1 record, clinched a triple-double average, became the single-season triple-double king and posted per game numbers of 32.5 PPG, 12.5 RPG and 10.3 APG. For his efforts, he earned his fourth Western Conference Player of the Week award this season.

This is how the week broke down:

4/4 vs Milwaukee: W 110-79

12 points, 13 rebounds, 13 assists, 2 steals, 3 turnovers

4/12 FG, 2/4 3P, 2/2 FT

4/5 @ Memphis: W 103-100

45 points, 9 rebounds, 10 assists, 4 steals, 7 turnovers

14/25 FG, 8/13 3P, 9/12 FT

4/7 @ Phoenix: L 99-120

23 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists, 8 turnovers

6/25 FG, 2/12 3P, 9/9 FT

4/9 @ Denver: W 106-105

50 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assists, 1 steal, 2 turnovers

17/32 FG, 5/12 3P, 11/11 FT

Outside of the complete dud in Phoenix, it was an outstanding week for the MVP candidate. He shot 43% from the field, 41% from downtown and a blistering 91% from the stripe. With the Thunder locked into the sixth seed with only two games remaining, it may have been the final act in what will go down as one of the finer regular seasons in league history.
