Superhuman Russell Westbrook Breaks Oscar Robertson Record In Style

Superhuman Russell Westbrook Breaks Oscar Robertson Record In Style

The Nuggets (38-42) needed to win their last three games and hope the Portland Trail Blazers dropped their last two, but instead Denver took a second heartbreaking loss to the Thunder this season.

Westbrook's 50-point, 16-rebound, 10-assist performance in the Oklahoma City Thunder's comeback win over the Denver Nuggets included a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Kyrie Irving scored 45 points for Cleveland, and LeBron James had a triple-double with 32 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists before the four-time MVP fouled out.

However, the Timberwolves lost to the Los Angeles Lakers (25-55) on D'Angelo Russell's last-second 3-pointer.

Memphis, which has secured the seventh seed in the Western Conference playoffs, sat its starters for the fourth quarter.

James Harden hailed Russell Westbrook's triple-double record but believes the MVP should be decided on wins and not individual accomplishments.

Forget the 57 points for a brief moment and recognize the clutch factor yet again: The Thunder trailed by 14 with 6:18 left before Westbrook scored 19 points down the stretch, including a 31-footer to send the game into overtime.

They became the first teammates to each reach 40 points in the same game in franchise history and the first in the National Basketball Association to do it since Westbrook and Kevin Durant in 2015.

"So, I definitely feel confident in shooting that shot", he said.

A triple-double is when a player manages double-digit numbers in three statistical categories in one game. "And I can say this without blinking, that what Russell Westbrook has done truly - even (though) Harden is close to him - but what he's done, he's got to be the MVP of the league".

Westbrook has the better stats than Harden but the latter has led his team to the third-best record in the league.

HAWKS 126, CAVALIERS 125: In Atlanta, Paul Millsap scored 22 points and the Atlanta Hawks took advantage of Cleveland's fourth-quarter collapse to overcome a 26-point deficit. He barely missed a pair of rebounds in the final minute, either of which would have given him the record. Coach Billy Donovan said it'll be up to Westbrook if he wants to rest during one or both of the Thunder's final two games.

Nuggets: Visit Dallas Tuesday on the first night of a back-to-back to end their season.
