But even after recording the first triple-double of this year’s NBA Playoffs, with a staggering 51 points, 13 assists, and 10 rebounds, Russ wasn’t in the mood to shower himself with adulation.

Warning: This is NSFW.

The Houston Rockets may have won Game 2, 115-111, but when this series gets back to OKC, Russ is going to have the home crowd willing him on.

Never underestimate the power of individual greatness.
