Russell Westbrook ties NBA single-season triple-double record

Russell Westbrook's historic season just became, well, even more historic.

In the third quarter, Westbrook had 12 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists against the Bucks on Tuesday night for his 41st triple-double on the season, tying Oscar Robertson's single-season record.

The Thunder guard is an MVP candidate for averaging a triple-double on the season, and if his current stats hold -- 31. 9 points, 10.4 assists, 10.6 rebounds -- he'd be the first player to do so since Robertson in the 1961-62 season (30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists).
