In a night full of win, Russell Westbrook collected another by winning the award for best Game Winner of the Year.
Even with the triple-double average locked up, Westbrook piled ahead, scoring his 42nd triple-double of the season on April 9 against Denver. He decided to cap off the night with an incredible game winner.
Westbrook finished the game with 50 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists. No shot was bigger than the game winner as you can see above.
Westbrook’s season historic was capped off by this shot. Each MVP has a shot, a game, something that cements their place in the halls with all of the other great ones. This one was the icing on the cake for Westbrook.
He finished by averaging 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game. He surpassed Oscar Robertson is more ways than one. In Robertson’s triple-double season, it was Wilt Chamberlain who was the MVP that year. Chamberlain averaged a measly 50 points that season.We invite you to follow Thunder Digest on Twitter and like Thunder Digest on Facebook. Our Podcast is on iTunes.
