Russell Westbrook dropped his fourth-straight triple-double and his 34th of the season to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 123-102 blowout win over the Toronto Raptors.
Westbrook finished the game with 24 points, 16 assists and 10 rebounds. He’s now only seven triple-doubles shy of Oscar Robertson’s single-season record of 41.
“They are an aggressive defensive team,” Westbrook said of the Raptors. “They like to trap and stuff, so my job was to use that to my advantage, take on two people and make sure the guys get open.”
The loss marked the Raptors third in four games, leading to the team holding a closed door team meeting after the game.
