on

A week after recording the first “perfect” triple-double, Russell Westbrook put another mark in the NBA history books Wednesday with the most points in a triple-double.

Westbrook scored 57 points and added 13 rebounds and 11 assists in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 114-106 overtime win over the Orlando Magic, topping James Harden and Wilt Chamberlain, who each scored 53 points in a triple-double. “That is definitely a blessing,” Westbrook told reporters of his historic night in Orlando, Florida. “I definitely don’t take this game for granted, and I try to come out each night and try to compete at a high level. That is definitely something that is a blessing and definitely something that I can be proud of.”
