Westbrook ties Oscar Robertson’s season triple-double record of 41

The Associated Press - April 5, 2017 8:57 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has matched Oscar Robertson’s single-season record for triple-doubles, collecting his 41st against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Westbrook clinched his triple-double Tuesday night on an assist to Taj Gibson with 9:17 left in the third quarter. The crowd stood and chanted “MVP! MVP!” long after the assist.

Westbrook finished with 12 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists to help the Thunder beat the Bucks 110-79. He clinched his seventh straight triple-double on an assist to Taj Gibson with 9:17 left in the third quarter.

Robertson set the record during the 1961-62 season, and Westbrook can break it Wednesday in Memphis. Westbrook also moved into a tie with Wilt Chamberlain for fourth on the career list with his 78th triple-double.
