Russell Westbrook becomes the second player after LeBron James to score triple-doubles against all NBA tea

Houston Rockets guard seems unstoppable this season as he has recorded a very rare record for himself in the history of NBA. Russel Westbrook, seemingly the best possible synonymous name for the triple-doubles, on Tuesday achieved a singular feat that only one player had accomplished till now.westbrook-records-most-triple-doubles-vs-nba

Westbrook became the second player in the history of the NBA to ever produce a triple-double against each and every NBA team which was previously accomplished by King LeBron James. LeBron James achieved this feat last year in November, playing against Oklahoma City Thunder as he scored 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the Lakers’ 112-107 victory over the Thunder at Staples Center.

Now Westbrook produced a well-decorated 32 points stint in the match, consisting of 11 rebounds and 12 assists. Coincidentally against the same team, James attained the same record. For Westbrook, it was his 146th career triple-double as he became the second player to do so. It’s not surprising that Westbrook also needed to accomplish the feat against his longtime team, as he had played for the Thunder for the first 11 seasons of his career. westbrook-has-triple-double-vs-nba-teams

Westbrook is known for his pro-athleticism on the floor as he also holds a record of averaging a triple-double in three straight seasons in the NBA history. He is currently averaging 25.1 points, 7.8 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game.

Despite Russell Westbrook scoring his 146th triple-double, Houston Rockets collapsed, eventually losing the game by 112-107 to the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Toyota Center. Apart from his ferocious performance, he failed to pull his team to victory. 

As of now in terms of all-time triple-doubles, Westbrook remains well behind the all-time leader Oscar Robertson, who notched a whopping 181 trip-dubs across 14 seasons in the league. LeBron James currently has 90 triple-doubles under his name who is still active and playing.
