Westbrook ties triple-double record in rout over the Bucks

16 Avril 2017

It was Westbrook's seventh straight triple-double, and the 78th of his career, tying Wilt Chamberlain for fourth most in National Basketball Association history.

Westbrook tied the record set by Robertson in the 1961-62 season by totaling 12 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists.

Westbrook however was more focused on the Thunder's defeat than the latest chapter in his remarkable season. He also had a triple-double (with 41 points) Sunday. Michael Jordan heads the list with 866 consecutive games of double-digit scoring. "It was a good win for us". He's questionable to play tonight. He departed with 2:35 left in the period and didn't need to come back.

Knicks 100, Bulls 91: Carmelo Anthony scored 23 points, and NY snapped Chicago's four-game win streak.

They weren't the only two with big numbers.

But the Cavs were already turning their attention to Boston -and beyond. "You're dealing with the MVP when he's playing like that", Randolph said. Westbrook also made nine of 12 free throw attempts, including two that sealed the Thunder's win with less than a second remaining.

Westbrook continued his incredible season with 12 points, 13 assists and 13 rebounds in the Thunder's 110-79 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. The fans at Chesapeake Energy Arena began to shout "MVP" during the stoppage.

The 2017 NBA Most Valuable Player race has come down to a one-on-one battle between two triple-double monsters - Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook and Houston Rockets' James Harden.

"To be able to be on this stage with this group of guys, it's unbelievable and a blessing". "Something I'll definitely never forget". "I'm just truly honoured to do it here, especially in Oklahoma City".

A horde of Russ' critics always go back to his volume shooting or high turnovers when picking apart the potential MVP, and his history-tieing triple-double didn't feature any of that.

The 28-year-old Thunder star poured on 45 points in a scintillating display at Memphis's Fedex Forum as Oklahoma City clinched a nail-biting 103-100 win to improve to 45-44. OKC has five games left in the regular season - four of which are on the road.

Marc Gasol led the Grizzlies with 23 points, and Zach Randolph added 20 points and nine rebounds off the bench.

Memphis is coming off an overtime 89-95 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Without him in the line-up, Westbrook is proving that he can be a superstar on his own and lead the Thunder to the playoffs.
