Russell Westbrook Entering the Record Books
Russell Westbrooks season so far has been absolutely amazing. He currently has 23 triple doubles and has a chance to break the all-time record of 41 set back in the 1961-62 season by Oscar Robertson.
Right now the numbers show him having a 62 percent chance of beating 41 triple doubles. He has 23 through 46 games and has to get 18 more to tie it with 36 games remaining. Earlier in the season Westbrook claimed he didn’t care about the triple doubles and just wanted to win.
However, the Thunder have a .772 winning percentage when he has one. As the season goes on it will be fun to watch and see if a 55 year old record can be beat.
