Westbrook, the reigning MVP who joined Oscar Robertson as the second player ever to average a triple-double last season, is nothing if not determined.

He accomplished this during a 137: 123 win against Memphis Grizzlies

 

He became the first player in the league’s 72-year history to average a triple-double a second time. Robertson achieved the feat during the 1961-62 campaign (30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds, 11.4 assists), and missed the mark by less than one assist or rebound per game four other times.

Meanwhile

LeBron James played in his 82nd game, scored 10 points and then got some rest for the playoffs as the Cavaliers concluded a “crazy” regular season with a 110-98 loss on Wednesday night to New York in what was Jeff Hornacek’s last game as Knicks coach.

James had never played every game in his 15-year NBA career. But the 33-year-old capped a remarkable run in which he seemed to break a record every night by adding another accomplishment to his long list of achievements.

And now he’ll try to get to his eighth straight Finals and win a fourth title with a team that looks nothing like it did in November.

“We’ve got a chance,” James said. “We’re one of 16 teams that have a chance to win a championship. That’s all you can ask for.”
