Watch the moment Russell Westbrook clinched another triple-double season

Watch the moment Russell Westbrook clinched another triple-double season

I'm not too much into the statistics. Here are some likely causes of the apparent ennui.

While he won't win the MVP again this year, it's an fantastic individual accomplishment. We've got to play better to take a 27-point lead into the fourth.

Russell Westbrook made National Basketball Association history on Wednesday, becoming the first player to average a triple-double in multiple seasons.

While Westbrook scored only six points, his figures gave him a triple-double average for the second successive season.

There was little doubt that Westbrook would gather those 16 rebounds in this game, given that the accomplishment earned him an MVP last season.

And Robertson never did it in multiple seasons. LeBron James was second in the league in assists coming in with 9.1 assists per game.

On the season, he averaged 25.4 points, 10.1 rebounds and 10.3 assists overall. For nearly the entire season, he was not averaging a triple-double, causing his quest for a repeat to fly under the radar, to a large degree.

The record was on Westbrook's mind from the opening tipoff Wednesday as he had just one point and 11 rebounds at halftime. But despite praising his former teammate Harden, Westbrook did not have a pick for the MVP award this season. The crowd went berserk for one of their favorite team members, understanding that this is likely his final National Basketball Association season.

The upshot was that the Thunder ended tied with Utah and New Orleans, but had the best record involving those teams.

Single-game tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday and will be available on the Thunder website. The triple-double appeared to come organically last season.

Coming into the final two games of the regular season, Westbrook needed 34 rebounds to make the mark - a tall order for a point guard. "If people could get 20 rebounds every night, they would".

Westbrook entered the night needing 16 rebounds to clinch the triple-double average.

"Since everybody wants to be talking, I'm exhausted of hearing the same old rebound this, stealing rebounds, all this s--". I come out and play, and I get the ball faster than someone else gets it. That's what it is. I'm not saying you want to be up 40, but there's no reason we can't be up.

Now, Westbrook hopes to prove that he and the Thunder are just getting started.

Thunder star Russell Westbrook's season-finale performance Wednesday night was overshadowed by what one veteran announcer said during the game.
