The raw numbers are stunning:
Through three games, Russell Westbrook has 116 points, 37 rebounds, and 35 assists. The man is on a mission.
More than numbers, that mission is wins, and he got that with a 113-96 victory over the Lakers Sunday. But in doing so Westbrook had 33 points, 16 assists, and 12 rebounds. That’s two triple-doubles in three games.
No player is playing with the anger, the fire of Westbrook every night. The only question is will this load weigh on him over the course of the season.
