Over the last few seasons, Russell Westbrook has scored the triple-double to his will. With his triple-double last night, the Wizards star rewrote the NBA’s record book at an astonishing pace.
Russell Westbrook’s performance against the Indiana Pacers was phenomenal last night. By the final whistle, Westbrook scored 35 points, jaw-dropping 21 assists, and 14 rebounds. His tremendous performance led the Wizards to a 132-124 victory.

The Beastbrook has become one of the three players in League’s history to score at least 30 points, ten rebounds, and 20 assists in a game. The other two players are Oscar Robertson (32-15-20) on December 11, 1961, vs. Chicago and Magic Johnson (32-11-20) on November 28, 1988, at Philadelphia.
Westbrook has now tied Oscar Robertson, who scored 15 triple-doubles in five seasons. This is a great achievement for Russell Westbrook, and he said, “I Love this Game!!!” in an Instagram post.
How Russell Westbrook made history?
With this triple-double, Russell Brook made history for several reasons. He surpasses former NBA Champion Darrell Walker for most triple-doubles in Wizards franchise history. Walker earned 15 triple-doubles in 283 games over four seasons for the Wizards, while Westbrook marked 15 triple-doubles in just 38 games.
Westbrook had 18 assists in the first three quarters while he already pulled down his 10th rebound for the triple-double. It was his 47th rebound that he achieved before the fourth quarter. This is a record in the NBA as no one could pull a triple-double that fast in the last 25 NBA seasons.
This historical performance marked his 162nd triple-double in NBA, and he ranked second in NBA triple-down history. He just needs 20 more triple-doubles to become the first on the list and surpass Oscar Robertson.
For the last couple of seasons, Westbrook has been breaking his own records. He is just 32 years old, and with this heated form, he may play at least five to eight more years. Thus, fans would not be surprised if he breaks Robertson’s maximum triple-down record.
