With 33 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists against the Utah Jazz in a 112-104 Thunder win Saturday, Russell Westbrook recorded his 32nd triple-double of the 2016-17 campaign, passing Wilt Chamberlain for the second-most in an NBA season. “It’s amazing what he’s done,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.

Westbrook, who has a knack for speedy triple-doubles, notched this one with 8:50 remaining in the third quarter with a rebound. After the 10th rebound, he scored 20 of his 33 points and picked up only two more assists and one more board. “I just play,” Westbrook said of his switch between distributor and scorer.
