Westbrook salutes teammates after triple-double record
14 February, 2019, 00:01 | Author: Suzanne Horton
It was Westbrook's 10th assist, securing his 10th consecutive triple-double and breaking an National Basketball Association record held by no less a record-setter than Wilt Chamberlain. The Thunder have won nine of those contests.
He eventually reached the mark, before hitting a three-pointer off an assist from George, which gave his teammate the third triple-double of his career.
The 30-year-old will have an opportunity to stretch the streak to 11 games when the Thunder square off against the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday.
The figures make George and Westbrook the first teammates in National Basketball Association history to record triple-doubles in the same game with both players scoring at least 20 points in the process.
"This is the best I've felt mentally", George added. All night long, George was relentless in his attack, slashing downhill into the lane, giving the ball up when double teamed and dancing behind screens for three-pointers.
"There is no other person who has led in triple doubles year after year".
"We talked about it right before that play, we talked about it", George said. "But [Westbrook] told the situation, so it was cool to be on the other end of the triple-double".
Westbrook had five assists heading into the fourth, and after a rest, he re-entered the game with 9:36 remaining.
Westbrook figured he might as well get a different kind of assist. The Thunder are an impressive 19-7 within the friendly confines of Chesapeake Energy Arena, while the Blazers are an underwhelming 10-14 on the road this season. "It felt fantastic. The energy was awesome".
George poured in a magnificent 47 points, laid on 10 assists and took 12 rebounds. I go out and compete every night and leave it on the floor. If the Thunder get high-level play from their two All-Stars they should be able to walk away with a win.
