Mile High City Buried By The Broadie

The Mile High City just experienced the Wrath of The Broadie when the Thunder escaped the Nuggets, thanks to Russell Westbrook. Right now, there is no question that Russell Westbrook is the frontrunner for the MVP award this season. Westbrook is a stat filler and just the second player in NBA history to average triple double in one season. Although there are still some doubters about his game and attitude, Westbrook just cemented his name in the history books.

Historic Game For Russell Westbrook

The game between Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder started late due to multiple games scheduled for today. The Atlanta Hawks made an epic comeback against the Cleveland Cavaliers when they stunned the reigning champions by beating them while they were down 26 points at the start of the fourth quarter. The game was great but not greater than Oklahoma City Thunder and Westbrooks performance. OKC had a hard time finding the basket during the first 3 quarters of the game and with their relentless effort spearheaded by Westbrook, they won the game in a stunning fashion.

Most Valuable Player Indeed

Westbrook tallied 50 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists. He also recorded his 42nd triple-double of the year. After the game, Westbrook was interviewed about his historic game and what it means to surpass The Big O, Oscar Robertson. According to Westbrook, his mentality didn’t change when a lot of people states that the record set by the Big O won’t be broken. The “Why Not” persona that he has been showing since Durant left is also trending on Twitter right now.
