Russell Westbrook leads Oklahoma City Thunder past Minnesota Timberwolves
OKLAHOMA CITY — The numbers Russell Westbrook has been putting up this year have caught the NBA by storm. Almost every night out, he is being mentioned with the likes of Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan as far as records being broken.
But it wasn’t the statistics that stood out Sunday evening when Oklahoma City hosted Minnesota as part of the league’s Christmas slate. It was the seemingly pure joy the fiery point guard played with as the Thunder ran away with a 112-100 victory at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
