Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook has become a triple-double machine. On Monday, he recorded his 10th straight, putting him alone in NBA history.
Westbrook had already reached double-digits in points and rebounds before finding Paul George, who knocked down the ensuing shot for Westrbook’s 10th assist. That put him past the great Wilt Chamberlain for the most consecutive triple-doubles in NBA history.

Over the last three seasons, Westbrook has equaled and exceeded the statistical accomplishments of some of the greatest players in league history.
Where he’ll ultimately rank is still left to be determined. But Westbrook’s statistical dominance takes a backseat to nobody.
