Scott Brooks on sitting Durant: "He had 42 points. If he would've made his free throws, he could've had 50. It's his fault."
But seriously though, a triple-double in 20 minutes and 17 seconds for Russell Westbrook. That sure is something.

Per Elias, Westbrook's triple-double is the second fastest in NBA history. Jim Tucker did it in 17 minutes in 1955.
Three UConn players on the court right now for the Thunder right now: Jeremy Lamb, Hasheem Thabeet and Caron Butler.
Fastest triple-double in NBA since '55 was Jim Tucker on Feb. 20, 1955. Syracuse vs. New York. Did it in 17 minutes. Russ is 2nd fastest.
Even the refs are smiling at Thabeet's jumper.
Hasheem the Dream drilling mid-range Js, Thunder up 31 on Philly. Can we call it now?
Hasheem Thabeet midrange jumper. It's over now, 76ers. Your season is over.
Unsustainable Derek Fisher 3
Remember: KD let his 30-point streak die because he sat the fourth in a blowout against the Nets. Not thinking about that stuff like we are.
Only six minutes for Jeremy Lamb so far tonight. Casualty of the Butler signing.
So if you're hoping for KD to go for 50 (or more), root for a 12-0 Sixers run.
After three, the Thunder leads the Sixers 98-76. Eat your heart out, Hasheem Thabeet fans.
