Russell Westbrook piling up triple-doubles at a Michael Jordan rate - goo.gl/alerts/VtoA #GoogleAlerts

6. What Westbrook is doing is incredible to watch. Fair to wonder if we will ever see OKC play as an elite team again for a season.

Sam Amick

ICYMI, the great Fat Lever discusses Russell Westbrook's recent dominance" Put Russell as the 'Little LeBron' now,' - usatoday.com/story/sports/n…

Dave McMenamin

LeBron, big hoops history guy, also said it's pretty cool to be in the league while Westbrook's play is being linked to the all-time greats

Dave McMenamin

LeBron on Westbrook's recent tear: "I think statistically, as far as the numbers, it's pretty incredible."

Andrew Sharp

Mirotic is Bulls fans' Westbrook, isn't he?

Anthony Slater

Eight of the Thunder's next nine games are at home. OKC is 17-3 at home with Russell Westbrook in the lineup.

Tommy Beer

Russell Westbrook has five 40-point games in the last month. The entire Atlantic Division combined has one 40-point game this entire season

Bill Simmons

My MVP ballot right now: Harden 1st, Curry 2nd, Westbrook 3rd, Isaiah Thomas 4th, LeBron 5th, CP3 6th. I might have Thomas too high.

Bill Simmons

I'm officially amazed by Westbrook's season. Only 2 other guys ever averaged a 27-7-8 w/ 30+ PER: '89 MJ + '10 LBJ. basketball-reference.com/play-index/psl…

Sam Smith

Pau on winning assist: "I read that Westbrook came and over helped and I saw E’Twaun wide open, instincts; good basketball play."

Sam Smith

Thibodeau asked about the defensive plan on Westbrook: "Yeah, we held him to 43."

Adi Joseph

We talk about Russell Westbrook the same ways people in their 50s and 60s talk about Earl Campbell. And the comparison seems apt.

Russell Westbrook's Best (2014-15): 49, 48, 45, 43, 41, 40, 40, 40, 39, 38, 34, 34, 33, 33, 32, 32, 32

Royce Young

Westbrook was fantastic against the Bulls, but just showed he still has some room to grow. Which is scary: es.pn/1G4P0EH

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook has grown so much this season. Really embraced his leadership role.

Darnell Mayberry

Westbrook's showing a ton of maturity and growth as a leader of this team. It'll be unfortunate if people remember only "I don't like you."

Darnell Mayberry

Much like he's done for the last several weeks, Westbrook answered every question tonight, thoroughly and honestly no matter how difficult.

Darnell Mayberry

Westbrook on stepping out with 1.2 seconds left: "I shouldn't have forced it. I should have just waited and let Dion make another option."

Polo Bustamante

"I should have passed it to Serge. That was a bad decision on my part. He was wide open." - Westbrook So much maturity in one quote.

Darnell Mayberry

Westbrook on his final shot: "I should have passed it to Serge. That was a bad decision on my part. He was wide open."

Jason Jones

Could any NBA player other than Russell Westbrook pull of that True Religion commercial?

Jose Luis Malo

Lo que hace Westbrook cada noche es casi injusto para el resto de la liga vine.co/v/O0levEuIdKx

Adi Joseph

A Twitter person told me early this season they'd rather have Rubio than Westbrook. That person probably somehow feels validated right now.

Sam Amick

Fat Lever (look him up, kids) on who Russell Westbrook reminds him of: "To me, it's like Clyde and Michael in one." - usatoday.com/story/sports/n…

Michael Dugat

Remember when Aldridge pretended like his hand was hurt ... then got that robotic hand made from the same stuff as Westbrook's face?

Adi Joseph

FAT LEVER. @Sam Amick talked to the triple-double anomaly about Westbrook and it's awesome: usat.ly/1B9sQS7

Russell Westbrook's streak mesmerized while it lasted: a look at his night & perspective from the great Fat Lever - usatoday.com/story/sports/n…

Royce Young

OKC's final play was a disaster, but remember Westbrook's game-winner against the Wizards? Did Scott Brooks get credit for that or nah?

Greg Rappaport

I still think this needs to be fact checked RT @Candace Buckner: RUSSELL WESTBROOK IS HUMAN!

Joe Cowley

Westbrook is a bad man, but Thibs is one bad coach. Get the memo, front office. Draft players, sign free agents, then get out of the way!

Royce Young

This was the play with Westbrook not trusting. Had Ibaka wide open in the pick-and-pop: http://t.co/JgdNMwq9UV

Royce Young

Besides, it was a pretty clear audible by Pau Gasol after seeing Westbrook cheat off. Great decision by him, great shot by Moore.

Mark Followill

Heck of a win for the Bulls. E'Twaun Moore upstaging Westbrook of all things

Jake Fischer

We're all one. We all have that friend who texts you after ever Thunder loss screaming Westbrook isn't a point guard.

Anthony Slater

RIP to one of the more impressive streaks in recent NBA history: Russell Westbrook's triple-double streak ends at four (had 43-8-7 tonight).
