Russell Westbrook is giving the term “flexing on my ex” a whole new meaning.
While Kevin Durant is on the Warriors bench due to an injury, Westbrook is on the court dominating, setting record after record. Russ is doing so well he has fans of opposing teams shouting “MVP!”
On Wednesday night, Russ made NBA history once again by recording the highest-scoring-triple-double ever against the Magic. Not only did he score 57 points but he also had 13 rebounds and 11 assists during OKC’s 114-106 overtime win against the Magic. It broke the previous record held by James Harden and Wilt Chamberlin, who both scored 53-points.
Westbrook spoke about his performance after the game and even he seemed a little in disbelief stating, “That is definitely a blessing. I definitely don’t take this game for granted, and I ty to come out each night and try to compete at a high level. That is a blessing and definitely something that I can be proud of.”
Who is your pick for MVP?
