After posting 36 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in a win over Boston on Tuesday, Westbrook has scored at least 20 points in 25 straight games, which is the longest current streak in the NBA and the fifth-longest streak of Westbrook’s career.
Since January 1st, Westbrook is leading the league in scoring at 33.1 points per game on over 52-percent shooting, which is the third-best mark in the league among guards attempting at least 15 shots a night. Where is the efficiency coming from? Westbrook has trimmed his 3-point attempts by over half – from 4.9 per game through December 31st to 2.3 since the turn of the calendar year.
Over the last 10 games, Russell Westbrook has scored 234 points in the paint, something only Shaquille O’Neal has done in a 10-game span over the last 20 seasons.
