Westbrook ties triple-double mark; Thunder top Bucks 110-79

"I'm just truly honored to do it here, especially in Oklahoma City". Moreover, for Westbrook to maintain his 30 points per game scoring average he'll need to score another 77 points or average 11 points per game.

Tuesday's triple-double is also Westbrook's seventh consecutive, tying the longest streak of his career that he set earlier this season.

USA Today's Sam Amick, who is included in the selected media voting panel for this year's MVP race, has made a list of both Westbrook and Harden's basic and fancy statistics that could be considered when deciding who will be this season's victor.

It was Westbrook's 40th triple-double of the season, putting him one behind Oscar Robertson's National Basketball Association record of 41, set during the 1961-62 season.

Thunder: Westbrook's next attempt at holding the record on his own comes Friday at Phoenix. He'll have the chance to tie Tuesday at home against Milwaukee, and he could potentially set the mark Wednesday in Memphis.

Westbrook secured his 41st triple-double of the season in the third quarter, matching the record Robertson established in the 1961-62 season.

In addition to Westbrook, James and Draymond's nights, six other players came VERY VERY close to making it one of the craziest triple double nights ever.

The guard, who also had 10 assists with the nine rebounds, nailed a 3-pointer - his eighth of the game - with 14 seconds left to extend the Thunder's lead to 101-97. You've got to give it to him; he earned it. Westbrook operated as a quadruple threat in guiding the Thunder to a 103-100 victory over the Grizzlies.
