Westbrook ties triple-double mark; Thunder top Bucks 110-79

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies meet Wednesday in National Basketball Association action at the FedExForum.

CITY (AP) - For just a few moments, Russell Westbrook slowed down. The home crowd stood and chanted "MVP! MVP!" long after the assist.

"It's one of those nights, a special night, and something I definitely will never forget".

Oklahoma City improved to 32-9 this season when Westbrook gets a triple-double. Westbrook wore his "Black Toe" Air Jordan XXX.5 PE in his record-tying performance as the Thunder thrashed the Bucks 110-79.

"It's something I could never have dreams of growing up", said Westbrook, who can break the record Robertson set in the 1961-62 season on Wednesday night against the Grizzlies in Memphis.

To put this record in perspective, the next person on the all-time list is Wilt Chamberlain, who managed 31 triple-doubles in 1973-74.

After picking up a triple-double in his last chance against the Bucks this season, Westbrook has now triple-doubled against 27 of a possible 29 opponents. Despite making 11 field goals as a team, Westbrook assisted on just two of them, which is weird in and of itself because their offense doesn't move unless he's the one throwing the coals into the boiler. That massive amount of attempts just shows how he is not giving the ball up in close games.

Reserve center Enes Kanter led the Thunder with 17 points.

Young phenom Giannis Antetokounmpo was limited to 11 points on 3-of-10 shooting. The Spurs are one of two teams in the league who hold opponents under 100 points a game. Gibson and Alex Abrines added 12 points apiece as the Thunder snapped a two-game losing streak. The game had been paused, right around the nine-minute mark of the third quarter, to acknowledge history. "And you can feel that in the building and you could see that his teammates were not going to let him down tonight".

Milwaukee made just 3 of 18 3-pointers and shot just 36 percent overall. Were outrebounded 53-38. He is just one triple-double shy of breaking the season record of 41.

Courtney Lee had 14 points for the Knicks Maurice Ndour had 13 points and 12 boards.

SALT LAKE CITY - Gordon Hayward scored 30 points while Rudy Gobert added 20 points and 11 rebounds to lead Utah.

What can be said about Russell Westbrook's fantastic season that hasn't been already? He clinched a double-figure rebound average during Tuesday's game and needs 16 assists to average 10 for the season. While Westbrook was tying the Big O's record, Milwaukee's Gary Payton II was out breaking necks as he wore the highly coveted Kaws x Air Jordan IV Retro.

"I think it's pretty obvious watching us that we're at our best when we get out and play defense", point guard Matthew Dellavedova told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
