Russell Westbrook Makes History, Becoming No. 2 All-Time in Triple-Doubles for a Season


It’s no secret, Russell Westbrook has been a triple double machine all season for the Oklahoma City Thunder and today, the superstar made history. Again.

Thanks to his 33 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists against the Utah Jazz, he notched his 32nd triple-double of the 2016-17 season, passing Wilt Chamberlain to No. 2 all time. He is only nine triple-doubles away from taking Oscar Robertson‘s record, who has the most, with 41 in an NBA season. Can he do it?

It’s crazy that he recorded the triple-double halfway through the third quarter.

The best part about it is the Thunder won, and move closer to the Los Angeles Clippers and Jazz for that fourth and fifth spot in the Western Conference standings. The Memphis Grizzlies are not far behind either. But every win against those 4-7 seeds may prove to be big come playoff time.


FINAL: OKC 112 | UTA 104
