In an exciting game on Wednesday, that went into overtime; Russell Westbrook became the first ever player since Michael Jordan to record four straight triple-doubles as Oklahoma City Thunder (34-27) struck down the Philadelphia 76ers (13-48) 123-118.
Westbrook finished with 49 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and one block in their win over the Sixers. In the absence of Kevin Durant, who has been out since Feb 19, Westbrook has lead OKC to a 4-2 record.
Over his last three games, he’s averaged 42.7 points, 14.3 rebounds and 10.7 assists and has recorded four straight double-doubles overall. The 76ers dragged the game to overtime, but Isaiah Canaan Jason Richardson’s combined 60 points was not enough as Westbrook’s spectacular display and Nerlends Noel’s defensive display made a significant difference.
