Russell Westbrook becomes fourth player to reach 100 triple-doubles

Russell Westbrook becomes fourth player to reach 100 triple-doubles

As you can see, in addition to the congratulatory tweet, the occasion is also being celebrated with a Diamond Card of Westbrook for the game's popular MyTEAM mode, which is a mode that allows players to build their own team, consisting of former and current National Basketball Association players.

Obviously, this benefits the Thunder greatly - 82 percent of the time that Westbrook has notched a triple-double, Oklahoma City has won the game.

Westbrook was typically unstoppable against Atlanta (even on the second night of a back-to-back), and a vintage Carmelo Anthony performance, which always seem to come at the expense of the Hawks, helped propel Oklahoma City to a road victory.


Tuesday's triple-double was Westbrook's 21st of the season and his third consecutive game completing the feat. He had also set the record for most points in a triple-double, 57, but James Harden of Houston topped that mark with 60 in January. Westbrook needed 736 games to get there, but he's really stepped up the pace since Kevin Durant left for Golden State. In addition to his three 50-point triple-doubles, Westbrook has eight more with at least 40 points. While OKC will be wise to be cautious with George, as groin injuries are easily worsened by rushing back, they do find themselves in something of a precarious position in such a hotly contested Western Conference. "Only the Sacramento Kings (267), Los Angeles Lakers (258), Boston Celtics (203), Philadelphia 76ers (140), Golden State Warriors (128) and Brooklyn Nets (104) have more than Westbrook's 100".

The Thunder now have two days off before beginning a streak of 11 straight games against teams currently four-or-more games over.500. Westbrook whipped a nifty, lefty pass to Jerami Grant for a right-corner 3 seconds later. The Thunder trailed by 12 at the half. Those are the five best teams in the league. "The most important part about this game is winning, embracing and enjoying it with your teammates". "One pro to the remaining schedule, however, is the fact that the Thunder, by virtue of having played a league-leading 70 games through March 14, will enjoy a schedule that's a bit more spread out than many of their competitors".
