Washington Wizards guard Russell Westbrook is having a great season, and he took things to a different level Monday night during a 132-124 win over the Pacers.
The electric NBA guard recorded the first 35+ point and 20+ assist triple-double in NBA history against the Pacers, and the numbers don’t just stop there. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I know Russell Westbrook hasn’t ever won a ring, but the man plays basketball like he’s from a different planet.
He’s a guard who can do literally anything he wants on the court. The dude scored 35 points, dished out 21 assists and hauled in 14 rebounds against the Pacers.
That’s the kind of stat line you expect to see out of a video game. It’s not something you expect to see in real life.
Props to Westbrook for continuing to dominate at a high level. The man is the definition of a beast on a basketball court.
