Westbrook got his fifth on Sunday against the New Orleans Pelicans, clinching it on an assist to Enes Kanter for a dunk with 2:14 left in the third quarter. Westbrook finished with 28 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists. He also had 10 turnovers, becoming the first player to reach double-figures in all four categories since Jason Kidd in 2000.
