OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook keeps coming up with different ways to make his case for NBA MVP.
Sunday against New Orleans he scored 21 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Thunder to a win.
Tuesday night against Utah he scored his teams final 14 points in the fourth quarter to erase a deficit and produce a 109-106 win. Westbrook scored 43 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 10 assists for his 30th triple double of the season.
