Russell Westbrook sets triple-double record

by Jason Micklewright | Thunder Correspondent | Tue, Feb 12th 3:32am EST

Russell Westbrook cemented his tenth consecutive triple-double on Monday, and in doing so entered the record books for the longest triple-double streak in NBA history. In a 120-111 win over the Blazers, Westbrook tallied 21 points (5-for-19 FG, 1-for-6 3PT), 14 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and two blocks, over 37 minutes.

Fantasy Impact:

Westbrook passed Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain on his way to etching his name in the record books. It was a special night for the Thunder and their fans, as Paul George also scored a triple-double, making it the first time in franchise history that two teammates have both posted triple-doubles in the same game. With this kind of momentum, there's no reason to be believe Westbrook won't get yet another triple-double on Thursday against the Pelicans.
