Russell Westbrook makes NBA history with triple-double high score


Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook made the highest scoring triple-double in NBA history as his side beat Orlando Magic 114-106.

Westbrook scored 57 points as well as notching up 13 rebounds and 11 assists.

It was his 38th triple-double of the season – just three short of the NBA record set by Oscar Robertson – with eight games remaining.

“Overall, it’s just incredible what he’s doing now,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.

A triple-double means a player has recorded a double-digit number in three of five statistical categories: points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks.

“I don’t take this game for granted. I just try to come out each and every night and compete at a high level,” Westbrook said.
