Russell Westbrook Breaks Wilt Chamberlain’s Consecutive Triple-Double Record with 10

OKLAHOMA CITY — Russell Westbrook broke the record for consecutive triple-doubles with his 10th in tonight’s game against the Portland Trailblazers.

Westbrook achieved the record during the 3:46 point of the fourth quarter.

With 21.2 points, 11.2 assists (leads NBA) and 11.1 rebounds this season, Westbrook has a chance to average a triple-double for an unprecedented third consecutive season.
