Russell Westbrook Sets NBA 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

On Monday, he gave them another reason to be mad at him.

On Tuesday night, Westbrook did his usual thing, posting 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in a 120-111 Thunder win over the Portland Trial Blazers.

"I am just happy to be a part of it, happy to get the win".

"I never even dreamed of playing in the National Basketball Association or standing here talking to you guys".

"Each time I walk in this locker room and see my name up there is a blessing". That's an unbelievable moment in itself. "Just to be able to wake and be able to have a job, have a jersey, have a name on your back, because to me that's a blessing itself and something I never even dreamed about as a kid".

On setting the new National Basketball Association record Westbrook thanked his team-mates and God for his achievement. But with a quick flurry of setups, the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard was up to nine assists with four minutes to go.

The figures make George and Westbrook the first teammates in National Basketball Association history to record triple-doubles in the same game with both players scoring at least 20 points in the process.

"I thought he had it already", George said. 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. "I didn't know it was that close".

The Thunder point guard averaged 19.7 points, 12.3 rebounds and 13.8 assists over the 10-game streak. "So, it's cool to be on the other end of the triple-double". George finished with 47 points after a fourth-quarter scoring spree.

"Yeah, we talked about it right before that play", George said. "I was clueless at that moment". But he told me the situation.

As for whether or not Westbrook felt any pressure to help George in that spot?

"The chemistry is probably one of the best I've ever seen", said Felton.

Westbrook had five assists heading into the fourth, and after a rest, he re-entered the game with 9:36 remaining. All night long, George was relentless in his attack, slashing downhill into the lane, giving the ball up when double teamed and dancing behind screens for three-pointers.

"Everybody is going insane for Giannis [Antetokounmpo] and James [Harden]". "When you got your two superstars on your team that are connected the way they are". "He's at a completely different level". He broke Wilt Chamberlain's record of consecutive triple-doubles in a season. "It felt incredible. The energy was awesome".

Westbrook is averaging a triple-double for the season with 21.2 points, 11.1 rebounds and a league-leading 11.2 assists per game. After all, he has averaged triple-doubles over each of the last two seasons and is aiming to average one yet again this year. Robertson is first with 181.

"I'm just excited for Russell", George said during his post-game on court interview. "That's what I do". And whatever happens, happens.
