Thunder clinch playoff berth vs. Heat behind Westbrook's triple-double

Russell Westbrook had some harsh words for those that believe he's stealing rebounds from teammates to make his own stats look better

He averaged 21.9 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.0 steals, and 3.1 3-pointers during his first - and possibly last - regular season with the Thunder.

National Basketball Association's reigning MVP, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Westbrook needs to grab 16 rebounds in the regular season finale on April 11, to clinch averaging a triple-double for the second consecutive season.

Westbrook entered the Oklahoma City Thunder's final two games with the tall task of needing 34 rebounds to round his average up to 10. Although James Harden, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and others have received most of the attention regarding this year's MVP award, Westbrook's numbers have been wonderful yet again.

Who will replace House Speaker Paul Ryan?
Scalise wouldn't confirm the reports about Ryan's pending announcement he would not seek re-election, calling him a "good friend". In 2015, Freedom Caucus members also said they were open to considering McCarthy at first, but ultimately rejected him for Rep.

Coming into tonight's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Westbrook season average was 25.6 points, 9.9 rebounds and a league-leading 10.1 assists per game.

He grabbed his 16th in the third quarter.

The simplest explanation is often the best one, and in this case, when Westbrook did it last season, he became only the second National Basketball Association player ever to do so and the first in a whopping 55 years.

HEALTH REPORT: Traumatic Brain Injuries
Fann said it's important to recognize that most people who sustain a single concussion do not develop dementia. Causes include road traffic accidents, falls, sporting accidents and assaults.

The win was critical - with a loss, the Thunder would have been a No. 8 seed and forced to play No. 1 seed Houston in the first round. Brewer was fouled on a 3-pointer in the fourth quarter and left the game for good with a knee sprain. If people could get 15 rebounds, they would.

Steven Adams scored 24 points and Corey Brewer added 17 for the Thunder, who matched a franchise record with 20 made three-pointers. "A great group of guys from last year, and this year, the support, everything they've done for me, I don't take it for granted". I don't think nobody thinks twice about that. 36 points and 7 rebounds for the former Oregon Duck. It just so happened that they played well as well. "Just to see that and be a part of that, and also to be here at the end of his career it's something you can look back on and tell your kids that this is the definition of what a true professional is". "He's somebody I always looked up to, and it's a real pleasure to have him here". "Rebounding helps us win".

"We watch him at practice, we watch it on a nightly basis", Paul George said.
