Russell Westbrook had his 25th triple-double of the season as the Washington Wizards extended their winning streak to four games by defeating the Detroit Pistons. He had 15 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in 30 minutes of play.
After the game, Washington’s co-star Bradley Beal talked to the media about the progress of his team and Westbrook’s attitude toward the game.
“We embrace that, we embrace who we are…and Russ’ attitude toward the game because he’s going to bark at you,” Beal said, per Chris Crouse.
The Wizards are currently in the fight for a Play-In Tournament spot. They are in the 11th place in the Eastern Conference with 23 wins and 33 losses, sharing the same record with the 10th-placed Bulls.
