Russell Westbrook continues to make the triple-double look easy.
Westbrook notched his 10th triple-double in a row Monday night, breaking a tie with Wilt Chamberlain and setting an NBA record for consecutive triple-doubles. The Oklahoma City Thunder star dished his 10th assist to Paul George for a 3-pointer with just under four minutes left against the Portland Trail Blazers to secure the record.
Westbrook put his name in the record books two years ago when he became just the second player in league history to average a triple-double over an entire season. He followed up that MVP campaign with another triple-double season in 2017-18 and remains on pace this year to do it for a third consecutive season. Westbrook entered Monday night’s game averaging 21.2 points, 11.2 assists and 11.1 rebounds a game.
Named an All-Star this season for the eighth time, Westbrook now has 23 triple-doubles on the year and 127 for his career, third-most all-time behind Oscar Robertson (181) and Magic Johnson (138).
