RUSSELL Westbrook recorded his 18th triple-double of the season to power the Oklahoma City Thunder past the Memphis Grizzlies, 103-95, in Oklahoma on Wednesday (Tuesday, Manila time).
Westbrook overcame a bad shooting night — 6 of 19 field goals, 0 for 7 from the 3-point line — to finish with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists for the 55th triple-double of his career.
Enes Kanter had 19 points and Victor Oladipo added 16 for the Thunder which won their third straight game and got back at Memphis for its worst loss of the season, a 114-80 rout in Memphis last December in which Westbrook was thrown out for arguing with the referees.
Mike Conley had 22 points for Memphis which never led in the game, while Zach Randolph and Chandler Parsons each had 14 apiece. Memphis is 5-5 in its last 10 games.
