Loop Jamaica – Russell Westbrook posted a monstrous triple-double in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 119-103 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.
The Thunder star tallied 20 points, 20 rebounds and 21 assists at Chesapeake Energy Arena. He became the first player since Wilt Chamberlain in 1968 to record those numbers in a game.
Oklahoma City has not played well lately, but their latest triumph keeps them tied with the San Antonio Spurs for the seventh seed in the Western Conference.
The Thunder got valuable offensive contributions from multiple players. Five members of the team scored at least 15 points and everyone benefited from Westbrook’s distribution.
