Thunder PG Russell Westbrook takes solo National Basketball Association record for consecutive triple-double

Westbrook is averaging a triple-double for the season with 21.2 points, 11.1 rebounds and a league-leading 11.2 assists per game.

Chamberlain's nine-game streak closed out the 1967-68 season, as the Hall of Fame center averaged 26.7 points, 23.7 rebounds, and 12.2 assists over that span. He trailed only Paul George, who scored a team-high 47 points. The Portland game was only his seventh National Basketball Association game ever with double-digit assists.

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. The win sees the Thunder move four wins clear of fourth-placed Portland and remain one game behind the Denver Nuggets. You give this high-flying Thunder team 24 assists, and it's a candidate to score 120 points.

Pot-smoking tipster finds tiger in abandoned house, police say
The tiger was insufficiently housed and left alone, but police said it was well-fed and appeared to be healthy. The concerned smoker called cops when they stumbled across a overweight tiger in a cage in an unlocked garage.

It was a historic night in Oklahoma City.

So triple doubles figure to be rare for George.

But anytime George can post a triple double, he's likely to make continued National Basketball Association history, since Westbrook nearly surely will be there, too. He broke Wilt Chamberlain's record of consecutive triple-doubles in a season.
