Westbrook secures triple-double average, falls short of 42nd

Westbrook, meanwhile, finished with 23 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists plus eight turnovers in 36 minutes. Westbrook has put his team on his back on the way to an absolutely historic season, becoming the first player since Oscar Robertson in 1962 to average a triple-double for the season. He recorded his seventh triple-double in a row for the second time this season on April 4, hence becoming the first player in National Basketball Association history to accomplish that feat. That stat wasn't around when Robertson played, but he had two Hall of Famers alongside him, Jack Twyman and Wayne Embry, who averaged 22.9 and 19.8 points a night, respectively.

November 28: At Madison Square Garden, Westbrook torches the Knicks for 27 points, 17 rebounds and 14 assists, raising his season rebounding average from 9.9 to 10.3.

The focus may have been on Westbrook, but Booker's 21-point fourth quarter stole the headline.

Further, as Phoenix snapped a 13-game losing streak, Westbrook (6-of-25 FG 23 pts, 12 reb, 8 ast) again fell just short of historical triple-double #42 amid Oklahoma City's bittersweet struggles.

Warren was the story, scoring a game-high 11 on 5-of-7 shooting, including one 3-pointer.

Doug McDermott #25 of the Oklahoma City Thunder cant get a shot off in time at the end of the first half of the National Basketball Association game against the Phoenix Suns at Talking Stick Resort Arena on April 7, 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona.

He missed his first 11 shots before sinking a 17-footer with 50.4 seconds left in the half. Especially considering that he was looking like one of the best players in the league just a year ago when Kevin Durant was still putting up buckets in OKC.

The Toronto Raptors beat the Miami Heat 96-94 as DeMar DeRozan scored 38 points - breaking Vince Carter's franchise record with his 31st 30-point game of the season. His 70% shooting night last night certainly didn't hurt, either, but it's the offensive rebounding-the ability to create more possessions for a team that's starving for them-that is the most impressive new wrinkle in Allen's game.

"That's part of history", Suns point guard Tyler Ulis said. Well, with less than a week left in the regular season, the Oklahoma City Thunder are sitting in sixth place in the highly competitive NBA Western Conference with a 45-34 record.

Russell Westbrook is the MVP hands down and it should not even be that close. It definitely wasn't a goal, just going out and trying to win. "I've seen enough miraculous things this year".

Westbrook has three more chances for that 42nd triple-double, two of them against Denver.

The Pistons scored seven straight points, with five from Harris, to cut the lead to 76-73 with about two minutes left in the quarter. "I wasn't making the shots..."

After the game, Westbrook tried not to take to reporters.
