Thunder's Westbrook focused on playoffs, not historic season

According to NBA Stats, Harden is the first player in league history to have 2,000 points, 900 assists and 600 boards in one season. The Admiral averaged 27.6 points, 10.8 rebounds, 3.2 blocks, and 2.9 assists per game. "The team can feel not great about themselves and then in one minute, feel awesome". My dad told me that when I was younger, 'You got one friend and your friend is Spalding. He said there won't be any special conversations about what to expect. "How this series unfolds and who is playing and what group of guys give us the best opportunity night-in and night-out, we'll see how things unfold". It's what I did. He got cold down the stretch with the wrist injury, which was likely a factor, but we all know he can go 8-13 from deep on any given night. Obviously, the stakes are higher, but at the same time, still got to put the ball in the hole. If you notice, when it happens, it is often highlighted at the bottom of your tv screen when watching a game, it is often highlighted in the post game highlights, it is often the mark of overall excellence for any individual while on the basketball court. "He just goes out there and plays relentless".

Still, this journey will be much different for Westbrook. "As the season's gone on, I really haven't seen a whole lot of change in Russell from the first day of training camp to now".

Westbrook averaged a triple-double this season, 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists for the Thunder.

The Thunder ran a tribute video - yes, it was a tribute video - following lineup introductions to commemorate Westbrook's triple-double-laden season.

It also sets the stage for the first-round match-up 22 years later between the Rockets and the Oklahoma City Thunder. "It's a great experience". "Something that we can talk about later on down the line". Game 4 was basically all Rockets as Houston just overwhelmed the Thunder with their shooting and ability to spread OKC's defense. With the 2016-17 NBA regular season now in the books, Yardbarker takes a look at the primary candidates for the NBA MVP award. If Houston continues to hold its own on the glass despite three-guard lineups featuring some combination of James Harden, Patrick Beverley, Eric Gordon and Lou Williams, the Thunder won't last long this postseason.

The Thunder were the best rebounding team in the National Basketball Association this season, as OKC's cadre of bigs is a nightmare to deal with.
