NBA History made on April 9th, 2017

Yesterday, Russell Westbrook broke an amazing NBA record that was previously made by Oscar “The Big O” Robertson. The NBA record broken was the amount of triple-doubles in a single season. The Big O had made the record with 41 triple-doubles, which was broken by Westbrook with 42 triple-doubles! He had a monster game that day, with 50 points, 16 rebound and 10 assist performance at Denver. To cap it all off, Westbrook even made the game-winning shot for his team, which was a 35-footer, at Chef Curry range!

To cap this season off for Westbrook, he even had averaged a triple-double! This new record will most likely never be broken again. But who really knows? After this historic night, it proves that just anything can be done.
