The only tough part is rebounds, and the number of 3 point attempts gives you what...long rebounds and guards rebound more now than ever. What is another byproduct? Turnovers. Westbrook had 10 turnovers last night as well, so he had a quadruple double, including turnovers.
There are more than 20 players who are playing 34.5+ minutes per game. Guess how many of them have triple doubles this season.
