Westbrook, PG Etch Names In Triple-Double History

That dude he MVP’ Trail Blazers point to Paul George as the reason for Thunder about face

After the game, Westbrook downplayed his latest feat.

Westbrook finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists to break the record in a 120-111 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Westbrook scored his 10th assist in the fourth quarter to achieve the feat after he also had 18 points and 14 rebounds as he needed almost the entire game to pass Wilt Chamberlain for sole possession of the record.

Thunder: The Thunder have had a very solid season thus far, as they have gotten MVP-level play from Paul George, and nearly-nightly triple-doubles from Russell Westbrook. Westbrook told George that he was one assist away.

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.

As a result, George was named to his fourth straight All-Star Game and is considered one of the top candidates for the MVP award in what has been, easily, the best season of his nine-year National Basketball Association career.

"I thought he had it already", George said.

"I'm just excited for Russell", George said during his post-game on court interview. Go out and compete every night and leave it on the floor, and whatever happens, happens. Three minutes later with less than a minute remaining, George found Russ for a deep trey to complete his first triple-double in OKC colors. Players can come out and give 20-plus minutes out of the blue like Felton and Burton did tonight, but it's very rare in locker rooms for players to feel empowered to come in and brim with supreme confidence for each of those minutes. "I didn't know it was that close".

Thunder team-mate Paul George top scored in the match with 47 points.

"It's awesome to go out and compete", he said, "to see your teammate, your brother, do wonderful things, and you can be right on the side of him doing something special as well".
