Russell Westbrook Sets The NBA Triple-Double Record

If there was any doubt about who the NBA MVP is this season, it was all ended this evening in Denver.

If there was any doubt about who the NBA MVP is this season, it was all ended this evening in Denver.

Russell Westbrook, who was guaranteed a triple-double average for the season through his performance on Friday night, took things a step further today against the Denver Nuggets.

With 50 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists, Westbrook notched his 42nd triple-double of the season and broke Oscar Robinson’s record of 41, which “The Big O” set during the 1961-62 season. But he didn’t stop there; he then took a pass from Steven Adams with two seconds remaining in the game, and the Thunder down two to the Nuggets, and drained a 36 footer to win the game.

As if the Nuggets needed to become more of a part of Westbrook’s record setting evening, the loss also eliminated them from playoff contention.

NBA fans, say hello to your League MVP, Russell Westbrook.
