OKC Redefines "Triple-Double” Performance

Left to Right (Paul George, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony)



Triple Double even more terrifying


With Russell Westbrook working with two other big stars in the league, his triple double performance would not be as frequent anymore. But in contrast to that, Westbrook found a way for the new “Triple-Double” explosion of OKC.

Instead of only him scoring double digits, dishing out more than 10 assists and securing boards above 10. OKC’s triple double is in new form. There are now three (triple) players who will finish games in double digits (double) which is very much more efficient for the team to secure victory in every single match.

OKC bounced back hard from their shameful lost against Melbourne United. The triple threat: Westbrook, Anthony and George: scored 20, 16, and 19 respectively against Denver Nuggets to redeem themselves and bury the bitter memory of having a very disappointing ballgame at home with Melbourne.

Paul George even managed to have a double-double own performance, with 19 points and 11 rebounds against Nuggets.

The Thunders bagged their 3rd victory, defeated the Denver Nuggets 96-86.

However, setting aside the astonishing performance of the three, OKC still has a lot of loopholes to work on. 

Yes, they are productive enough to snatch another victory, but how efficient were they? Behind productivity lies efficiency. Thunders missed a lot of their shots (39-91).  

They also had a lot of turn overs (22). They somewhat won by luck for the Nuggets failed to convert their turnovers and empty possessions to counterpoints.
