Highlights:

  • Wizards guard scorches Pacers for the historic triple-double as he overtakes franchise lead in only 38 games

Over the past several season, the 32 year old Russell Westbrook has bent the triple-double as per his will, rewriting the league’s record books at an astounding pace.

By the final whistle of the match, Westbrook had accumulated 35 points, 14 rebounds and a career-best 21 assists in the Washington Wizards’ 132-124 victory over the Indiana Pacers. It marked just the third time in league history where a player topped 30 points, 10 rebounds and 20 assists. The other two being:

  1. Oscar Robertson (32-15-20) who managed to do it on the December 11, 1961 vs. Chicago
  2. Magic Johnson (32-11-20) who managed to attain the feat on the 28th of November, 1988 at Philadelphia.

The only Wizard player who achieved a 20-point, 20-assist triple-double was Rod Strickland (21-12-20) who did it on the 10th of February 1998.

Overall, Westbrook is now tied with Oscar Robertson as the only player with five seasons of at least 15 triple-doubles.

After the game, Westbrook said, “Tonight guys helped me out making shots. Cutting, moving. Made it easy on me.”
