How many ways can you statistically spin Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook’s latest amazing performance?

We’ll try for a few.

Westbrook finished with 36 points, 18 assists and 12 rebounds. That’s his NBA-best sixth triple-double of the season and 43rd of his career, tying Lafayette Lever for seventh all-time. Westbrook’s six triple-doubles are one fewer than the rest of the NBA combined. There have been seven 30-point triple-doubles in the NBA this season. Westbrook has six of them.

It’s Westbrook’s eighth straight 30-point game, the longest such streak of his career.

Westbrook has 15 career 30-point triple-doubles, passing Michael Jordan for the second-most such games over the past 30 seasons. LeBron James has the most with 20.
