Russell Westbrook sets National Basketball Association record with 10 consecutive triple-doubles

Russell Westbrook

The 30-year-old point guard broke the record in Thunders' 120-111 win over Portland Trail Blazers with 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists.

On setting the new National Basketball Association record Westbrook thanked his team-mates and God for his achievement.

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.

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 scored 21 points and Felton added 15. Players can come out and give 20-plus minutes out of the blue like Felton and Burton did tonight, but it's very rare in locker rooms for players to feel empowered to come in and brim with supreme confidence for each of those minutes.

Westbrook and George celebrate. Each moment for me is a blessing. Head Coach Billy Donovan's club held Portland to a 1-of-5 shooting start to quickly take a 10-4 lead, then finished off the first quarter on a 13-4 burst.

"Yeah, we talked about it right before that play", George said. But he told me the situation.

After the game, Westbrook downplayed his latest feat.

"Nah, no pressure", Westbrook said of paying off George's pass to get him the triple-double. "Just felt incredible. The energy was awesome". "Everybody I probably went up against - and no disrespect to other teams, they're unbelievable - Paul is the best that we probably went up against all year", Trail Blazers forward Evan Turner said.

The six-time All-Star admitted he had not realized the landmark was just one assist away.

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