No help, no problem: Thunder's Westbrook makes NBA triple-double history

Recording a triple-double for the 42nd time this year, Westbrook has now beaten Hall of Famer' Oscar Robertson's record for most triple-doubles set in 1961-2.

The 6'3 (190.5cm) point-guard from Lawndale, California is the first man in 55 years to average a triple-double.

This means he has averaged at least 10 for scoring, assists and rebounding for an entire NBA season (82 games).

The 28-year-old broke Robertson's record on the road, in a buzzer-beating win against the Denver Nuggets.

Today's effort marked Westbrook's 13th triple-double of the season and the 50th of his career. Westbrook is also the third-fastest player to 50 career triple-doubles (614 games), behind Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson.

Five Thunder players scored in double figures on the night. Steven Adams had 19 points and seven rebounds, Enes Kanter 12 points and Anthony Morrow and Andre Roberson adding 11 each as Westbrook continued to exploit mismatches and get his teammates open looks at the basket.
