Thunder’s Westbrook scores 7th Straight Triple-Double

Basketball Insiders

With a rebound midway through the fourth quarter, Russell Westbrook notched his seventh consecutive triple-double, the longest such streak since Michael Jordan had seven in a row in 1989.

But as one streak continued, another ended, as the Houston Rockets won 102-99 to snap the Oklahoma City Thunder’s six-game winning streak. Westbrook finished with 27 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists and sparked a 13-point comeback, but the Thunder fell short, with Westbrook and Anthony Morrow both airballing potential go-ahead 3-pointers in the final 30 seconds.

Afterward, Westbrook was in no mood to discuss the achievement, flashing only a cold glare coupled with awkward silence when he was asked about it.
