Russell Westbrook, star of the Oklahoma City Thunder, scored a tenth triple-double in a row in the NBA in Monday's 120-111 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Westbrook sat in for a triple-double assist before setting Paul George up for a 3-pointer with 3:51 remaining in the fourth quarter:

As a result, the 2017 MVP went ahead to Wilt Chamberlain for the most double doubles in a row, according to ESPN statistics and information:

Westbrook finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists against Portland.

During his MVP winning season, the eight-time All-Star was the first NBA player since Oscar Robertson in 1962 to average a triple-double in a full season. Now, Westbrook is on track to average doubles in points, rebounds and assists for the third year in a row.

After Monday night, he is accumulating 21.2 points, 11.1 rebounds and 11.2 assists per game.

However, unlike in 2017 and 2018, the heroic acts of Westbrook may not be entirely useless. Oklahoma City is coming off the first-round first-round playoffs, but is third in the Western Conference with a 37-19 record. According to NBA.com, the Thunder are 13 ° in offensive qualification (110.3) and third in defensive qualification (104.9).

It is possible that Westbrook is not even the most important player on the team. Paul George is third in NBA.com most recent MVP Ladder and won a triple-double of his own Monday (47 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists).

Even though the Thunder would be the weakest on the Golden State Warriors list in a seven-game playoff series, they seem ready to make the playoffs this summer, something they have not done since Kevin Durant went to Bay Area.
