It had to come eventually and he could do it in the duel against the Hawks. And so it happened. Russell Westbrook added his 100th triple-double as a professional in regular regular season against Atlanta, the 21st of this season and the third in a row, after the one against the Spurs on Saturday and the Kings on Monday.
The third triple-double in a row by Westbrook allows him to become the fourth player in the history of the NBA to get 100 triple-doubles – leader among active players – and is very close to Jason Kidd and his 107 triple-doubles. Westbrook, in addition, is the leader of the season, with those 21 triple-doubles that only one to hold that rhythm is LeBron James, with 14 triple-doubles after last night’s against the Suns.
Precisely Jasson Kidd is the player with more triple-doubles all-time in the Hawks court, the Philips Arena. The base managed three in that scenario, merit only matched by Rajon Rondo and perhaps Westbrook can also reach it, who has been this way on this court twice now.
OKC Continues To Climb
Last night, in OKC’s win over Atlanta (107-119), The Brodie went to score 32 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists to lead the Thunder to a capital victory, the fourth straight, which allows Oklahoma to stay in the fourth place and continue with a two game advantage over the ninth place, now in the hands of the Spurs. OKC has a balance of 41-29 and a 7-3 in the last ten games.
