Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star Russell Westbrook was back on the court Wednesday night following surgery to his cheekbone.
Wearing a mask like the super hero he is – and to protect that cheek – Russ tallied 49 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists in the overtime win against the 76’ers. It was his fourth consecutive triple-double of the season, and the first time that’s happened since Michael Jordan did it in 1989.
It’s his sixth triple-double of the season and the 14th of his NBA career.
Russ also had this coast-to-coast dunk.
