Russell Westbrook breaks NBA triple-double record

But this season, Westbrook has accomplished what many thought may never happen again: an National Basketball Association player averaging a triple-double throughout an 82-game National Basketball Association season. People always refer to 1961-62, the season in which the "Big O" averaged a triple-double, as the standard. For he has come down from Southern California, not to do My own will, but the will of Jerry West (who is exhausted of Oscar Robertson being the only to average a Triple-Double in a season).

The loss eliminated Denver from playoff contention, which also shows Westbrook's ruthless nature.

"It's a huge accomplishment", Harden said of Westbrook triple-double record.

Finally, Westbrook fed Christon for the 3-pointer to put Roberton's record to rest. Westbrook's victor from about 36 feet cam after Nikola Jokic missed a runner on the other end that would have put the game out of reach. "There's some players that feel like every day you're playing a game you stay in that rhythm". I'm just very thankful and blessed to be able to go out and compete on the highest level. So with nothing at stake for the team's playoff seed, or for himself individually against history, a case can be made Westbrook is due for a game off like other stars have had. Denver's center hit a pair of free throws on Denver's next possession to push the lead to seven points.

The Nuggets then blew their double-digit lead by allowing Westbrook to score the game's final eight points. How the Thunder choose to prepare, heading into a road game Tuesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves, is unknown. As a team, the Wolves shot 49 percent from the field but just three of 16 from the three-point line which wasn't enough to get past the Lakers who had six players finish in double figures in scoring.

"I mean, he wants to play", Donovan said. "It is something you definitely will never forget".

The Rockets have a 54-26 record so far while the Thunder are at 46-34.

The Pistons trailed by 12 early in the third quarter and shot 6 of 7 from 3-point range in the fourth to pull away from Memphis, which played its reserves in the fourth with the seventh seed in the Western Conference already secured.
