Westbrook gets triple-double number 40!

At this point, it’s just a matter of time before Russell Westbrook breaks Oscar Robertson’s single season triple-double record of 41! Westbrook recorded triple-double number 40 in a 113-101 loss to the Hornets today in Oklahoma City.

Westbrook finished with 40 pts, 13 rebs, and 10 asts.

OKC has six games left in the regular season.  Next game is Tuesday against the Bucks.

Oscar Robertson on Westbrook: ‘I don’t think any of these guards can beat him on a one-on-one game.’

Russell Westbrook is chasing the single season triple-double record held by Oscar Robertson. The record was set in the 1961-62 season.  Robertson gave ESPN his thoughts on whether he wants Westbrook to break his record:

“I’m rooting for him,” Robertson told ESPN.  “I hope he does it.”

Also, Robertson believes that no guard in the NBA can beat Westbrook one-on-one:

“I was talking to some basketball people the other night, and I said, I don’t think any of these guards can beat him on a one-on-one game.”

Furthermore, Robertson believes that Westbrook should be the MVP.

Should be interesting to see if the voters will agree with Robertson.




Triple-double number 38 for Westbrook

Russell Westbrook had a monster game, and triple -double number 38. Westbrook finished with 57 pts, 13 rebs, and 11 asts as the Thunder beat the Magic 112-106 in OT. This was the most points ever in a triple-double. Westbrook is now three away from the single season mark of 41, set by Oscar Robertson in 1961-62. At this rate, Westbrook is going to break this record.

OKC has eight games left.

Triple-double number 37 for Westbrook

Russell Westbrook has done it again! Westbrook recorded triple-double number 37 in a 92-91 victory over the Mavericks on Monday night. Westbrook hit the game-winning jump shot with 0:07 seconds left. He finished the night with 37pts, 13 rebs, and 10 asts.

Westbrook is now four triple-doubles away from tying the single season mark set by Oscar Robertson(41).

OKC has nine games left.

Russell Westbrook triple-double number 35!

Russell Westbrook has done it again. He notched triple-double number 35 in a victory against the 76ers. Westbrook is now six away from the all-time single season record for triple-doubles of 41, set by Oscar Robertson in the 1961-62 season. Westbrook finished with 18 points, 14 assists, and 11 rebounds.

He was 6-6 from the field and 6-6 from the free throw line. Perfection! This was the first time in league history that anyone has recorded a triple-double while being perfect from the field and free throw line.

OKC has 11 games left.

Westbrook notches triple-double number 34

Russell Westbrook’s magical season continued last night in Toronto. Westbrook notched his 34th triple-double in a 123-102 victory over the Raptors.

Westbrook, who had 28 pts, 16 asts, and 10 rebs last night, needs seven more triple-doubles to match Oscar Robertson’s record 41 in the 1961-62 season.  The Thunder are now 28-6 when Westbrook records a triple-double.

At this point, Westbrook and the Thunder have 14 games left. He needs eight to surpass the “Big O.” That won’t be easy, but not out of the realm of possibility for Westbrook.

Westbrook’s next opportunity to get triple-double number 35 comes Saturday night against the Kings.
