Westbrook sets another triple-double record in Thunder win

That dude he MVP’ Trail Blazers point to Paul George as the reason for Thunder about face

Russell Westbrook and Paul George made National Basketball Association history on Monday night, as they both recorded triple-doubles in Oklahoma City's win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Westbrook had 21 points, 14 rebounds, and 15 assists in the game.

Westbrook has now recorded a triple-double in the last 10 straight games, breaking Wilt Chamberlain's record of nine straight triple doubles that had stood since 1968.

Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook is used to triple-doubles. "I've got all the confidence in him". "But [Westbrook] told the situation, so it was cool to be on the other end of the triple-double".

Westbrook was given a standing ovation when he achieved the feat by laying on an assist for Paul George in the final quarter of a 120-111 win. Westbrook will look for his 11th straight triple double Thursday as the Thunder face the Pelicans in New Orleans.

Oil rises after Saudi output pledge, declining US inventories
The IEA further added that traders shouldn't expect US sanctions against Venezuela to fuel a rally in oil prices. OPEC supply cuts, coupled with USA sanctions on Iran and Venezuela, have eased concerns of a glut.

As for whether or not Westbrook felt any pressure to help George in that spot?

"Nah, no pressure", Westbrook said of paying off George's pass to get him the triple-double. With 45 points against James Harden and the Houston Rockets on Saturday, George has scored 92 points in his past two tilts. "The energy was awesome".

"I'm just excited for Russell", George said during his post-game on court interview.

The six-time All-Star admitted he had not realized the landmark was just one assist away.

Paul George is averaging 28.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.3 steals over 36.2 minutes per game while shooting 45.4 percent from the floor, 41.3 percent from 3-point range and 83.6 percent from the free-throw line. Players can come out and give 20-plus minutes out of the blue like Felton and Burton did tonight, but it's very rare in locker rooms for players to feel empowered to come in and brim with supreme confidence for each of those minutes.
