Westbrook breaks National Basketball Association record with 10th straight triple-double

Contest Shots and Step Up When it Counts – OU Medicine Game Day Report OKC vs. POR        By Nick Gallo | Thunder Digital Reporter

Russell Westbrook made National Basketball Association history Monday (Tuesday in Manila).

Chalk up another triple-double record for Russell Westbrook.

Westbrook racked up 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in the game, including 6 fourth quarter assists as the Thunder never trailed after the second possession of the game in a 120-111 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

George, on the vibe in the arena as Westbrook tried to set the triple-double record: "It just felt wonderful".

It was Westbrook's 23rd triple-double of the season and the 127th of his career.

It was Westbrook's 10th assist, securing his 10th consecutive triple-double and breaking an National Basketball Association record held by no less a record-setter than Wilt Chamberlain. George scored 21 points and Felton added 15. If the Thunder get high-level play from their two All-Stars they should be able to walk away with a win. "Everybody I probably went up against - and no disrespect to other teams, they're unbelievable - Paul is the best that we probably went up against all year", Trail Blazers forward Evan Turner said.


After Westbrook drained the 3, he and George met at midcourt, jumping and celebrating together.

"We talked about it right before that play, we talked about it", George said.

Westbrook received a standing ovation from those in attendance at Chesapeake Energy Arena after dishing out his 10th assist in the game, and it was fitting that the feat occurred in Oklahoma City.

"To go out an compete, we are truly thankful to the man above for blessing me and going out and playing the game I love".

During Westbrook's streak, the Thunder are 9-1, and he is averaging 19.7 points, 13.2 rebounds and 13.8 assists per game. But he told me the situation.
