Westbrook’s 60th Career Triple-Double Passes Bird


(Russell) Westbrook had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, passing Larry Bird with his 60th career triple-double, and the Thunder beat the Pelicans 114-105 on Wednesday night.

The accomplishment was not lost on Westbrook, who at 28 is too young to have enjoyed Bird’s best basketball with Boston when it happened but certainly understands what it means to be in the same conversation.
