Westbrook continues historic NBA streak


//

Russell Westbrook has set an NBA record with his 10th straight triple-double while Paul George had a 47-point triple-double of his own in Oklahoma City Thunder's 120-111 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Westbrook broke a tie with Wilt Chamberlain's 1969 mark by finishing with 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists.

He clinched the record on an assist to George for a three-pointer with 3:52min remaining in the fourth quarter for his 23rd triple-double of the season and the 127th of his career.

George had 12 rebounds and 10 assists for the third triple-double of his career as the Thunder improved to 37-19 on the season.

After the game, Westbrook downplayed his latest feat.

"I just go play the game the right way," he said. "It's what I do. Go out and compete every night and leave it on the floor, and whatever happens, happens. I'm very, very blessed to be able to go out and play, and I don't take it for granted."

Westbrook got the record on an assist to George for a 3-pointer with less than four minutes remaining in the game. 

"I thought he had it already," George joked after the win. "Usually, Russ has that by the first quarter. I didn't know it was that close."

Westbrook said the fact that George scored a triple double made it more special.

"It's amazing to go out and compete," he said, "to see your teammate, your brother, do amazing things, and you can be right on the side of him doing something special as well."
