Westbrook sets triple-double record, Thunder beat Nuggets

Westbrook on the other hand, have averaged a triple-double (31.7 points, 10.4 assists, and 10.7 rebounds).

James Harden hailed Russell Westbrook's triple-double record but believes the MVP should be decided on wins and not individual accomplishments.

What was so special about this three-point shot at the buzzer from planet Neptune, you ask? "Congratulations to Russell Westbrook on a magnificent season!" The MVP candidate broke Oscar Robertson's record, which stood for 55 years, but he also broke the Denver Nuggets' hearts by eliminating them from the playoffs with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at Pepsi Center.

Westbrook, who finished with 16 rebounds and 10 assists, cut the deficit to five points after hitting three straight free throws assessed after flagrant and technical fouls by Nikola Jokic. How the Thunder choose to prepare, heading into a road game Tuesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves, is unknown.

"I'm so thankful to play the game I love every night", Westbrook said, adding that he would give the game ball to his parents.

Westbrook almost broke the record in his last two games.

Arguably the greatest performance this season was made by Russell Westbrook.

It was a landmark day in the National Basketball Association as Westbrook set the record for the most triple-doubles in a regular season with his 42nd against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday. "I loved watching it".

"My motto is 'Why not?' and I always stick by it, regardless of what people say what is possible, is not possible", he said. Westbrook had 20 points in the fourth, including a steal, layup and basket with the Thunder clinging to a one-point lead, and two dagger 3-pointers in the final 1:13 (the second of which was followed by a strut).

OKC and Denver battled close in the first quarter with the Thunder holding a 27-26 lead after the first 12 minutes. While Westbrook's triple-doubles may take a forefront because they're so easy to visualize - 10, 10, 10 - there are plenty of records that Harden holds or could break, too. "It is something you definitely will never forget". After a loss last Sunday to Cleveland, George and the Pacers have run off three consecutive wins to pull themselves back to.500 with just two games remaining on the schedule.

Memphis, which has secured the seventh seed in the Western Conference playoffs, sat its starters for the fourth quarter.
