Russell Westbrook Ties Wilt Chamberlain With 9th Straight Triple-Double

George Westbrook rally Thunder past Rockets 117-112

Westbrook recorded 21 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists in the game.

Houston had pushed its lead to 58-42 despite a mini-surge from Westbrook before landing what appeared to be a devastating blow: a 10-0 run that included 3-pointers from Paul and Harden plus three Harden free throws after Paul converted a technical assessed against George for protesting a call.

The Thunder are 101-24 all-time when Westbrook has a triple-double.

He is going to make some step backs, and do some of that stuff.

"He said, 'Stop thinking".

Paul George led the Thunder with 45 points and 11 rebounds, while Russell Westbrook extended his triple-double streak to nine games, tying Wilt Chamberlain (1968) for the longest triple-double streak in National Basketball Association history.

In a nationally-televised game between two marquee teams that featured the past two MVP winners, it was George who emerged as the clear best player on the court.

Harden had 25 points in the first half and finished with 42 on 11-of-28 shooting.

His total at buzzer saw Harden extend his streak to 29 consecutive games with at least 30 points.

"James, obviously, for good stretches made those kind of shots, but to me, the only thing you can do is really contest and not foul", Donovan said. "And we just started playing".

"I thought we worked hard defensively on him, he's gonna get his points". "I see him do it all the time, and the type of player he is, it's so easy for him".

And it was all over when Westbrook weaved through the Rockets' defence to convert a layup in the fourth, giving the Thunder the lead for good at 113 to 112 with 26.9 seconds left on the clock. As a team, the Thunder shot 47 percent from the field and 17 of 44 from the 3-point line as they trailed the Grizzlies in the early going before blowing them out in the second half by 66-42. In the 2nd quarter, the Rockets outscored built a 22-point lead on the back of elite 3-point marksmanship and a large free throw disparity.
