Russell Westbrook recorded his 38th triple-double of the season Wednesday, moving the Thunder guard just three shy of Oscar Robertson’s record 41 triple-doubles in the 1961-62 season.
Westbrook’s latest triple-double is one of his most impressive.
He had 13 rebounds and 11 assists, but scored 57 points in Oklahoma City’s 114-106 win over the Magic on Wednesday.
The 57 points scored is the most ever in a triple-double in NBA history. Westbrook was 21 of 40 from the floor, including 6 of 15 from behind the 3-point line.
The dry sarcasm from everyone involved is impeccable. Kanter is directly referred to as Sixth Man of the Year candidate and Andre Roberson is introduced as All-Defensive team candidate. Nobody’s being subtle about who deserves what.
Then Roberson is questioned about his preference of guarding Westbrook or either fighting a poisonous snake, swimming with alligators or wrestling a bear. He liked his odds with the deathly animals over trying to stop the NBA’s top scorer.
