Westbrook close to breaking the “Big O” triple-double record

(PPN) – Superstar Russell Westbrook continues to average triple-doubles this season. The explosive Oklahoma City guard leads the NBA in scoring and made his 27th triple-double last night. He scored 38 points, 14 rebounds, and 12 assists against the New York Knicks.

Hall of famer Oscar “Big O” Robertson is the only player in NBA history to average a triple-double in a single season. Russell was drafted in 2008 and now the scoring machine has 64 triple-doubles in his career. The six-time All-Star and back-to-back All-Star MVP also won an Olympic gold metal in 2012.

Westbrook will be in New Orleans February 17-19 for the 66th NBA All-Star weekend. Fans are excited to see what will happen between him and Kevin Durant since the two are now feuding after Kevin left Oklahoma high and dry. There is a high chance of them bumping heads. Coach Kerr will decide if the two will play together on the court.

Durant left the Thunder and joined Golden State right after losing to them in the Western Conference finals last year. Westbrook told Durant “I’m coming!” loud and clearly, without a smile, during Saturday’s game. Despite losing, he scored 47 points, 11 rebounds, and 8 assists.

Whether it’s shooting, passing, blocking, or rebounding, Russell Westbook is all over the floor and getting the job done. Four more triple-doubles will tie him for second place along with Hall of famer Wilt Chamberlain, 15 more will break the record.
