Westbrook records 2nd-fastest triple-double in NBA History
Even for the league leader, this is ridiculous.
To put that into perspective:
- Westbrook came one minute shy of the NBA record set in 1955 for the quickest triple-double.
- Westbrook's 18 triple-doubles is the most by any player since Magic Johnson in 1981-82.
- Westbrook has five triple-doubles in under 30 minutes this season while the rest of the league has one.
- The last player to record a triple-double in the first half was Kevin Johnson in 1997.
As it were, Westbrook's superhuman effort Monday comes on the heels of last Wednesday's showing where he logged a triple-double in just 22 minutes.
A relatively subdued second half saw Westbrook finish with 14 points, 10 rebounds, and 14 assists while the Thunder cruised to a commanding 112-79 victory. The Thunder have won all 18 of their past games in which Westbrook logged a triple-double this season.
