As the NBA playoffs entered into day 2 with breathtaking performances and smart dunks, it was Russell Westbrook of Okhalahoma Thunder who stole the day with a record that looks impossible to break in the near future.
Westbrook set the record for the first 50-point triple double in postseason history, finishing with 51 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists.
He had already set the previous record during the regular season as he became the first player since Oscar Robertson to average a triple-double for an entire season.
Westbrook missed 14 shots in the 4th quarter which by far is the most in the past 20 post seasons.
However, this feat couldn’t save the Thunders as they fell 111-115 to the Houston Rockets.
Other results are:
Chicago Bulls 111-97 Boston Celtics
Cleveland Cavaliers 117-111 Indiana Pacers
Toronto Raptors 106-100 Milwaukee Bucks
Washington Wizards 109-101 Atlanta Hawks
Golden State Warriors 110-81 Portland Trail Blazers
San Antonio Spurs 96-82 Memphies Grizzlies
Los Angeles Clippers 99-91 Utah Jazz
