Westbrook clinches triple-double average for 2nd straight season

Russell Westbrook

The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard pulled down his 16th rebound of the game in the third quarter Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies, which ensured he'll finish with a triple-double average for the 2017-18 campaign.

At shootaround on Wednesday, Westbrook told reporters, "If you don't want [the rebound], I'ma get it".

After Westbrook grabbed the 16th board, the crowd erupted in a standing ovation, and Westbrook's teammates applauded.

Seeing Red: Apple Unveils iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in Red
Instead, Apple made a decision to offer a special iPhone X Leather Folio for existing X owners to help show their support. Apple already confirmed that some portion of proceeds from sales of this Red coloured iPhones would go to the charity.

Looking at the betting trends, the Grizzlies are 7-20 ATS in their last 27 games following a loss of more than 10 points, 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall. In the twilight of his career, it's undoubtedly cool for him to hear an MVP like Westbrook give him a shoutout for his leadership and teamwork. He was well on his way with 11 rebounds in the first half alone.

While it's impossible to dismiss Westbrook's accomplishments - again, his achievements were all but unseen before in the National Basketball Association - there were some videos that seemed to suggest that he was nearly boxing out his own teammates on occasion in order to reach double-digits. If people could get 20 rebounds every night, they would. If people could get 15 rebounds, they would. The people that's talking or saying what they need to say, they should try and do it and see how hard it is.

"Since everybody wants to be talking, I'm exhausted of hearing the same old rebound this, stealing rebounds, all this s***".

Netflix Takes Action and Pulls Out of Cannes
Trouble has been brewing since last year's Cannes, where Netflix debuted the well-received films Okja and The Meyerowitz Stories . It's hard to argue with Sarandos when he says that Cannes "has chosen to celebrate distribution rather than the art of cinema".

"I take pride in what I do".

Before the game, Westbrook rubbished critics who claimed he was simply "stat-padding" his way to the record books. I come out and play, and I get the ball faster than someone else gets to it.

Paul George led the team in scoring with 27 points, Russell Westbrook racked up a triple-double of 23 points with 18 rebounds and 13 assists while Jerami Grant chipped in with 17 points off the bench. The line is massive, but I think the Thunder get it done here in a blowout.

According to Ivan San Antonio of the same outlet, Valverde had a similar message: "We're sorry for them, for the disappointment". Ernesto Valverde's side sit top of the table, 11 points clear of Atletico Madrid.
