OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Russell Westbrook became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989 to have four consecutive triple-doubles, according to STATS, and the first since Jordan that year to have back-to-back triple-doubles with at least 40 points.

Westbrook set career highs with 49 points and 16 rebounds, and added 10 assists, helping the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Philadelphia 76ers 123-118 in overtime Wednesday night.

Jordan had seven straight triple-doubles and 10 in an 11-game span in 1989 for Chicago.

It was the most points by any player with a triple-double since Larry Bird also had 49 in 1992.
