Oklahoma City Thunder beat Denver Nuggets at buzzer as Russell Westbrook becomes the NBA's single-season triple
13 April, 2017, 02:40
On Sunday, he picked up his 21st triple-double of the season in a 135-128 victory over the Sacramento Kings with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 15 assists.
Two days after joining Robertson as the only players in league history to average a triple-double over an entire season, Westbrook secured his 42nd of the year by picking up his 10th assist on a dish to Semaj Christon for a 3-pointer midway through the fourth quarter.
Oklahoma City rallied from nine down late to beat the Nuggets in overtime on November 25. No other player has recorded three such triple-doubles in a career, let alone in a single season. 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.
"Very, very blessed. I've got to give all the thanks from the man above", Westbrook said.

Westbrook's 50-point, 16-rebound, 10-assist performance in the Oklahoma City Thunder's comeback win over the Denver Nuggets included a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Westbrook has the better stats than Harden but the latter has led his team to the third-best record in the league. He only averaged a triple-double in one of them.
"It's awesome. It's something I never could have dreamed about as a kid".
After Sunday's matches, the Rockets own a 54-26 record, eight games ahead of the Thunder with a first-round matchup in the playoffs all set between the two teams.
"Y'all are probably going to get exhausted of me saying the same thing, but I promise you I've been blessed with so many things". Because of the feat, Rockets superstar and leader James Harden thinks he should win the NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP) award over rival Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
