Russell Westbrook records 4th straight triple-double in another Thunder win
This man is not slowing down at all
Russell Westbrook extended his triple-double streak to four games on Wednesday with a 35-point, 14-rebound, 11-assist performance in a 126-115 overtime victory over the Washington Wizards. He has nine on the season, 46 in his career and he continues to average a triple-double this year. This is the second time in his career that he has registered four triple-doubles in a row.
Westbrook started relatively slowly in this one, with only nine points at halftime. At the end, though, he left no doubt as to who was the best player in the building. With eight seconds left in the fourth quarter, Westbrook hit a 3-pointer to force overtime. In the five-minute extra frame, he outscored the Wizards by himself, contributing 14 of the Thunder's 21 points.
Overall, this wasn't quite as pretty as some of Westbrook's other recent performances -- he shot 12-of-35 and turned the ball over seven times -- but it was enough to extend Oklahoma City's winning streak to four. Sometimes, superstars make it look like they can steal a victory with pure force of will. This was one of those times.
