Russell Westbrook records 181st triple-double, tying Oscar Robertson’s record – fr


Russell Westbrook has tied Oscar Robertson for most career triple doubles with 181 and can own the record in the Washington Wizards’ next game at the Atlanta Hawks on Monday.
Westbrook tied the Hall of Fame point guard with 1:39 left in the third quarter for the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night.

Westbrook was on an absolute tear in his first season as a Wizard, recording his 35th triple-double this season. He was 14 in April alone, the most in NBA history.

Westbrook, 32, already has the distinction of having the most triple doubles in a season with 42, in 2016-17.

He got his fourth consecutive triple-double by granting his 10th assist to Bradley Beal near the end of the third quarter at Indianapolis.

The playmaker has a triple-double in 21 of his last 25 outings and has already won an average triple-double in the season for the fourth time in his career.

Robertson has held the all-time triple-double record since 1961-62, the same season Robertson became the only other player to average a triple-double.

The last time an NBA all-time record was broken was when Ray Allen passed Reggie Miller on the all-time list by 3 points in 2011.
