Russell Westbrook recorded his 41st triple-double of the season last night in a 110-79 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. He recorded 12 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists in just 27 minutes of play to tie Oscar Robertson for most triple-doubles in a single season with 41.
Westbrook has now recorded his seventh consecutive triple-double and has five games remaining on the season to be the lone leader for the all time record. Westbrook is 16 assists shy of clinching an statistical triple-double on the season.
An accomplishment worthy of an MVP season as he is in the midst of doing something that has not been accomplished in 55 NBA seasons.
The Thunder are 32 – 9 this year when Westbrook records a triple-double for anyone criticizing him for chasing “triple-doubles”. The team wins when Westbrook does everything on the court.
Westbrook’s season averages to date are 31.6 points per game, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game.
His next chance to break the record is tonight at 8 p.m. against the Memphis Grizzlies. A game extremely important in playoff seeding in the Western Conference.
