NBA Playoff Picture: Russell Westbrook sets the West, and the East remains hazy (Ball Don’t Lie)

Russell Westbrook find joy in Denver’s pain. By now, you’ve probably heard Russell Westbrook logged his 42nd triple-double of the 2016-17 campaign against the Nuggets, passing Oscar Robertson for the most in single-season history. Now that you’re caught up, what you may have skipped over amid the drama of Westbrook’s 50-point, 16-rebound, 10-assist effort on Sunday night was that the 36-foot buzzer-beater he hit to beat Denver knocked the Nuggets out of the playoff contention and punched the Portland Trail Blazers’ ticket.

Just when we thought the Cavs had turned a corner, they go and lose comfortably to a ragtag roster full of resting regulars. The Hawks sat Dennis Schröder, Dwight Howard, Paul Millsap, and Kent Bazemore (several of whom are recovering from injury) on the second night of a back-to-back despite not yet having locked down a playoff berth and ended up not needing any of them. Tim Hardaway Jr. led the way with 22 points, but this was a team effort.
