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.

NBA Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain set the record from March 8th through the 20th of the 1968 season with nine. During that span, the former Philadelphia 76er averaged 26.7 points, 12.2 assists and 23.7 rebounds per game.

This was Westbrook’s 127th triple-double of his career. The Oklahoma City Thunder have won over 80 percent of the games Westbrook notches double-digits in three statistical categories. 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.

Westbrook has averaged 19.7 points, 14.1 assists and 13.1 rebounds per game in this stretch. The Thunder went 8-1 and are currently playing the Trailblazers at home.
