Russell Westbook is beating the Knicks on his own

New, comments


Yep, you're reading that right. After one quarter Russell Westbrook has more points than THE ENTIRE NEW YORK KNICKS TEAM! This is also his first game back after a major injury so ... things are going swimmingly.

It's not just that Russ is dominating, it's that he's making people look silly.

UPDATE: Westbrook couldn't stay ahead of the Knicks the entire night, but he did finish with 32 points on 12-of-17 shooting (3-of-4 from three), eight assists and seven rebounds to help OKC to a 105-78 win. He became the first player in the shot-clock era to record 32 points and eight assists in 24 or fewer minutes.

Not bad coming off a month-long layoff.
