DBD 12.2.10 RUSSELL WESTBROOK AHHHHHHHHH

ESPN.com

There's no shame in barely missing a triple-double, especially when you have the kind of performance Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook had in a triple-overtime win over the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday night.

Westbrook's 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists made him the first player to at least reach those benchmarks this season. A check of Basketball-Reference.com shows he's one of only two guards to do that since 1990, Vince Carter being the other in 2006-07.

He scored all 13 of Oklahoma City's points in the third overtime and finished with 21 points combined after regulation.

I was at the game.  Unfortunately, I don't remember the Vince Carter game. But during my time as a season ticket holder, I've missed Devin Harris' halfcourt buzzer beater:

Nets/Suns in Double OT (oh wait, that's the Vince Carter game):


and their first win after starting 0-18:

I did manage to make to loss 18. That was nice.

So I figure the combination of all of those is like missing the Nets' greatest hits of losses. (Although I did watch the last time the made it to the playoffs and lost. I seem to remember Vince dribbling the ball off his foot with something like 30 seconds left against the Cavs in game 6 in 2006.) But now I've got another memorable Nets loss to add to my I WAS THERE IN PERSON memory bank.

Anyway, I still hate Russell Westbrook.
