Superhuman Russell Westbrook Breaks Oscar Robertson Record In Style

20 April 2017, 10:09 | Andy Ferguson

But since notching his 41st triple-double of the season on Tuesday he had twice fallen short as he vied for number 42.

Westbrook had already joined Robertson as the only players to average a triple-double over the course of a season. His 10th assist of that game was a kick out to Doug McDermott for a three-pointer with 1:23 remaining in regulation to give the Thunder a 98-95 lead. OKC will have to run its offense through Westbrook if they have a shot. He also won the game for the Thunder, by making a three-pointer at the buzzer against the Denver Nuggets. Portland will be the No. 8 seed when the postseason begins next week.

Kyrie Irving scored 45 points and LeBron James collected 32 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists, but it was all for nought as the Cavs dropped into a tie with Boston.

"Brodie's" performance re-wrote the National Basketball Association history book as he became the league's single season triple doubles record holder with 42, knocking off Hall Of Famer Oscar Robertson's record of 41 during the 1961-62 season.

The last thing the Thunder want to do is disrupt the incredible flow Westbrook has sustained all season. Kevin Durant, now with the Golden State Warriors, had one last season with the Thunder. With the Thunder locked into sixth place, a first-round playoff matchup against fellow MVP candidate James Harden and the No. 3 seed Houston Rockets promises to be exciting.

If Harden wins the NBA MVP over Westbrook, it means that the voters would have valued Harden team's win-loss record compared to Westbrook team's performance this year.

The three points saw his point total leap to 50, to go along with 16 points and 10 assists, etching his name into the league's history books; the shot likely to go down as one of the most iconic in recent memory.

He also strengthened the argument that he should be the league MVP.

Harden is averaging about five points fewer and his assists are almost the same, but because the Rockets have obliterated every team-held three-point record this season, he's still only fractions of a percentage point behind Archibald.

"I've got to give all the thanks from the man above", Westbrook said, according to ESPN. "But that does not demean what you've done as an individual". How many wins would they have if Westbrook (a) wasn't doing what he's doing or (b) wasn't on the team period?
