Westbrook drops sixth straight triple double in win
Russell Westbrook cannot be stopped. The Thunder won again Monday night, as Westbrook (33 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists) notched another triple double in the young season. With a triple double Friday against Houston, Westbrook will tie Michael Jordan’s 1989 feat of seven straight games.
Westbrook is averaging 31 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists a game after 22 games in the season, well on his way to not only breaking Oscar Robertson’s single season record of 41 triple double games, but in also becoming just the second player in league history to average a triple double the entire season.
Russell Westbrook left the court to chants of "MVP! MVP!"
