The Oklahoma City Thunder have been performing really well this season, banking on the great performances by their stars Paul George and Russell Westbrook leading from the front. They are right now tied for the 3rd spot with the Houston Rockets, both having an identical 42-26 record.

The Thunder have won just 4 in their last 10 matches but are on a 2 game winning streak right now and Russell Westbrook has been on fire during it. Westbrook is averaging a triple-double this season, with 23.2 points, along with 11.1 rebounds and 10.5 assists per game. His shooting was terrible to begin the season with, but he has now come into his own and has been shooting really well since the All-Star break.

He has also been one of the best defenders in the league this season, averaging 2 steals a game. In the win last night over the Brooklyn Nets, Westbrook got himself another triple-double, scoring 31 points, dishing out 11 assists and grabbing 12 rebounds. He even had 3 steals to place the icing on the win. His game has been going to the next level of late and he is probably the best point guard in the league right now. He should be on your DFS roster against the Indiana Pacers tomorrow.

Alternate pick: Kyrie Irving (Boston Celtics)
