The Thunder said Brewer suffered a knee sprain and will be re-evaluated Thursday.
Afterward, when the Grizzlies had lost 137-123 to finish the season 22-60, interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said exactly what I was thinking: "His numbers help them win". But with top-tier talent, they could have the Western Conference on notice. Anthony will be playing in postseason games for the first time since 2013, after four consecutive futile seasons with the Knicks. G Alex Abrines (concussion protocol) did not play.
"I'm very, very thankful to go out and compete", Westbrook said. He knows that as long as they get the rebound as a team, nothing else matters. This season, though, Harden has more or less justified his backers' belief, leading Houston to the best record in the National Basketball Association - albeit with help from a key new addition, Chris Paul - while Westbrook's revamped Thunder have more or less stayed in place. Does Westbrook do that because he's stat-chasing or just prone to lazy spells on defense?
"Since everybody wants to be talking, I'm exhausted of hearing the same old rebound this, stealing rebounds, all this s--". Colin thinks the voters should just admit they prefer the shiny new toy and stop trying to justify changing their criteria from season to season.
After averaging a triple-double and setting a single-season National Basketball Association record with 42 triple-doubles last season, he added 25 more this season, and the Thunder won 20 of those games. He only had six points, off nine attempts from the field.
Through it all, it might be argued that Westbrook's season was the most notable in the National Basketball Association this season. "This is an honor that anyone in the National Basketball Association would want, but it's only Russ who holds it".
Fox Sports announcer Brian Davis might be in some serious trouble after a comment he made about Russell Westbrook Wednesday night.
Paul George scored 27 points and Russell Westbrook bagged a triple-double as the Oklahoma City Thunder overcame an 18-point deficit to clinch a play-off berth with a 115-93 victory over the Miami Heat on Monday. After his 2017 MVP campaign where he matched Oscar Robertson's feat, he somewhat quietly did the exact same thing in 2018.
ESPN tracked every outfit Westbrook wore this season: "OKC's MVP does what he wants - on the court and off it".
In the process, he became the first player in league history to average a triple-double in two different seasons.
