Westbrook earns his record-breaking 42nd triple-double in style.
Today was all about Russell Westbrook. Brodie earned his 42nd triple-double in a 106-105 victory over the Denver Nuggets, breaking Oscar Robertson's record that has stood for 55 years.
Westbrook racked up 50 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists and stroked a buzzer-beater from 30+ feet to give the Thunder the win.
