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.
