Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook stretches before a game against the Denver Nuggets Sunday

With an assist on Semaj Christon's three-pointer from the corner with 4:16 to play on Sunday, Russell Westbrook notched his 42nd triple-double of the season to break Oscar Robertson's 55-year-old National Basketball Association record. It was a dazzling performance as he seemingly willed the Thunder to victory late in the game. But the MVP talks and debate will have a clear answer after an intriguing 1st round match up between Westbrook's OKC Thunder and Harden's Houston Rockets series. The Thunder secured the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

More importantly, the Thunder needs these games from him; simply put, the odds of them winning when he tallies a triple-double are significantly higher than when he doesn't. "I thought winning was what it's all about".

All that Russell "Bestbrook" "NotStressedbrook" "OnAQuestbrook" "WellDressedbrook" Westbrook gives Me will come to Me, and the Triple-Double he gives to Me I will never turn away.

Denver will face Oklahoma City again on Wednesday in the season finale after playing in Dallas on Tuesday.

A triple-double is when a player manages double-digit numbers in three statistical categories in one game.

He delivered his 10th assist of the game with 4:17 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The race was for the seat previously held by Republican Tom Price, who now serves as Trump's Health and Human Services Secretary. Trump's approval rating has not topped 50 percent since he took office on January 20, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling.

Westbrook, who finished with 16 rebounds and 10 assists, cut the deficit to five points after hitting three straight free throws assessed after flagrant and technical fouls by Nikola Jokic.

Russell Westbrook is finally taking a night off.

The explosive point guard of Oklahoma City Thunder just broke the record for the most triple-double in a single season.

"My motto is 'Why not?' and I always stick by it, regardless of what people say what is possible, is not possible", he said.

Fans in Denver, eager to see history made, cheered every time he passed the ball to a teammate with a possible 10th assist on the cards, standing with cellphone cameras at the ready. Sabonis missed another short jumper with 5:39 left that would have given Westbrook the record. "He's been unbelievable in the way he's played, the way he's led", Donovan said after the team's morning shootaround. The Nuggets' Wilson Chandler bombed a 3-pointer with 9:56 left in the second period to lift Denver to a 29-27 lead.
