"Just to be a part of something like that ..."

Erik Horne on Jerami Grant's big night in Atlanta: "The Hawks shot 57.7 percent in the paint in the first half before Donovan elected to start Jerami Grant in the second half, when the Thunder's interior defense tightened up".

"I try to read and react and see what teams are doing defensively, and obviously find the ways to make the game easy for my teammates", Westbrook said.

Anthony struggled early, but he always seems to go into autopilot against Atlanta for some reason - delivering spectacular highlight treys with distinct regularity - and finished with 21 points on 7 of 15 shooting (6 of 11 from deep). "I think it's something that we should all appreciate".

He's proudest of the Thunder's record when he goes off for a triple-double - 82-18.

"That's my job", Westbrook said.

This epic eye-roll from a Chinese reporter is breaking the internet
The eye-roll was filmed by state-run broadcaster CCTV and was even filmed on mobile phones by mainland netizens and shared online. On Tuesday morning Beijing had announced a major government overhaul that was overshadowed by Liang's hammy performance.

Magic Johnson (138) and Jason Kidd (107) have hit triple-digit triple-doubles.

Last season, Westbrook won the MVP award and set a league record with 42 triple-doubles, joining Robertson as the only players to average a triple-double over a full year.

Since his National Basketball Association debut season in 2008-09, he is leading current players in the league by almost double his next-closest pursuer - LeBron James, who sits in second since '08-09 with 52 triple-doubles after Tuesday's 14th this season (James has 69 in his career).

"The fact that this is the 100th triple-double and he's a point guard, speaks to (the fact that) his fingerprints are all over the game". "It's always insane, man, to go on the road and just see, not just fans cheering, but just see kids in my jersey, because I never, ever imagined me playing in the league".

Westbrook is in line to get yet another triple-double season with averages of 25.3 points, 10.2 assists, and 9.6 rebounds per game, but he'll need to start pounding the glass even harder if he hopes to achieve this extraordinary feat before the season comes to an end.

George (groin) said he expects to play in Friday's game against the Clippers, Royce Young of ESPN reports. To see that every time, it's always wonderful for me. "So, to see that every time is always unbelievable for me, and I never take it for granted", added Westbrook.
