Russell Westbrook Sets NBA Record With 10th Straight Triple-Double

Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook broke a 51-year-old National Basketball Association record when he achieved a triple-double in 10 consecutive games.

Thunder team-mate Paul George top scored in the match with 47 points.

George never has been a high assister. Five of those games came with the Pacers.

Although Paul George ranks nowhere close to Russell Westbrook on the all-time list for triple-doubles, there was no denying the MVP worthy performance that the former Most Improved Player of the Year put up. If the Thunder get high-level play from their two All-Stars they should be able to walk away with a win. Oklahoma City is 9-1 in the span.

"He's the best competitor I've seen, ' George said of Westbrook". Even when Westbrook has been sidelined, Dennis Schroder has been around to run the offense and distribute the ball rather well. Three minutes later with less than a minute remaining, George found Russ for a deep trey to complete his first triple-double in OKC colors. I suppose he's more than capable of getting them in steals, since he leads the National Basketball Association in steals and steals per game (2.3), but his highest total in a game this season is six.

The Thunder are 17-6 when Westbrook has a triple-double this season, and are 103-24 over his career when he posts a triple-double. Westbrook has 23 this season in 48 games. Prior to this game, the All-Star guard was tied with Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain for most consecutive triple-doubles with nine.
