Oscar Robertson is the only player ever to have more triple-doubles in a season than Russell Westbrook. Westbrook had his 31st triple-double of the season to help the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the San Antonio Spurs 102-92 on Thursday night. He had 23 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists to match Wilt Chamberlain’s 1967-68 campaign for the second-most in a season.
Robertson had 41 during the 1961-62 season. Westbrook said he is honored to be among the greats. “It’s a blessing, man,” he said. “You come out every night and compete and try to compete at a high level. Whenever you are mentioned with guys like that, it’s always a blessing. I don’t take it for granted.”
