Westbrook sets triple-double record, Thunder beat Nuggets

In any other season, he would be a triple-double marvel, recording his 21st of the season with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 15 assists in a 135-128 win over the Kings on Sunday night. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 74.6 percent from the free throw line. The last player for the franchise with more than one triple-double in a season was Gary Payton, in 2002, when the team was the Seattle SuperSonics. He scored the Thunder's final 13 points, including his 36-foot game-winner at the death after a timeout was called with 2.9 seconds remaining. I'm very thankful and blessed to be able to go out and compete at a high level. And by making history against the Nuggets, Westbrook should be the 2017 NBA MVP. Overall, he finished with 50 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists.

"It's wonderful. It's something I never could have dreamed about as a kid". With the Thunder locked into sixth place, a first-round playoff matchup against fellow MVP candidate James Harden and the No. 3 seed Houston Rockets promises to be exciting.

"If he stays healthy, there's no reason he couldn't eventually break my career record of 181 triple-double games". Again, Westbrook would come up short of a triple-double. He broke a tie with Oscar Robertson, who had 41 triple-doubles in the 1961-62 season.

"We just want to get him back into the flow", Donovan said. "I think myself and our medical staff really agreed with him that this would be a good opportunity to get some rest".
