Beast of the Night: Russell Westbrook finished with a monstrous 38 points, 15 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 steals and 5 turnovers in a triple-overtime victory over the Nets last night. He shot 44 percent (14-32) from the field and 71 percent (10-14) from the line, but those mediocre percentages and the lack of a three-pointer aren’t too hard to forgive, given his other stats. Westbrook remains weak in threes and turnovers, but has still played like a top five fantasy stud so far this season.
