Russell Westbrook made NBA history Monday (Tuesday in Manila).
The Thunder star recorded his 10th consecutive triple-double in Oklahoma City’s 120-111 win over the Trail Blazers.
Westbrook tallied 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in the winning effort. He trailed only Paul George, who scored a team-high 47 points.
