Russell Westbrook made NBA history on Sunday (April 9) securing his 42nd triple-double breaking Oscar Robertson record for the most in a single season!
In a game that had everyone on pins and needles, the Oklahoma City Thunder star scored 50 points, grabbed 16 boards, and dished out 10 assists to help his team defeat the Denver Nuggets 106-105. And if his latest performance doesn’t convince you that he deserves to be the league’s MVP, Russ also knocked down this absurd game-winning shot.
Holy Westbrook. pic.twitter.com/rJ0uUMSngH

It’s a damn shame the magic Russell Westbrook displaying this year won’t be showcased deep in the playoffs.

I’m sorry but if Russell Westbrook doesn’t win #MVP this year, idk why it’s even an award… just WOW.
