Westbrook ties Robertson in win

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma City (44-33) led by 30 after three quarters, and Westbrook didn't play in the fourth.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook (0) reacts away from Memphis Grizzlies guard Andrew Harrison (5) during the second half at FedExForum. "I'm just truly honored to do it here, especially in Oklahoma City".

Speaking of Chamberlain, Westbrook is now tied with the Hall of Famer for No. 4 on the NBA's triple-double list with 78 for his career.

This was a road game.

His team, the Oklahoma City Thunder could not be much more pleased.

The Bucks are 40-38 on the season with four games left to play.

"The crowd was screaming it, so yeah I heard it", Westbrook said.

So the triple-double watch continues, and maybe that's not a bad thing. Now he has a share of one of the two records that will seal his 2016-17 as one of the most impressive statistical seasons in league history. "Leadership to me was more important than averaging points or field goal percentage or whatever, because I think that's what gets us the farthest and helps us win a championship".

Russell Westbrook matched Oscar Robertson's single-season record with his 41st triple-double and helped the Oklahoma City Thunder roll to a 110-79 victory. But I was just sitting there thanking God for the opportunity to play.

Curry's night was highlighted by an audacious no-look pass to Andre Iguodala on the break. Oklahoma City now trails the Clippers by just two games for the fifth seed.

The Nuggets moved within a half-game of Portland for the eighth playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Check out highlights from Westbrook's historic night below.

"It's something I could never have dreams of growing up", Westbrook said. "Something I'll definitely never forget".

Draymond Green notched his fifth triple double of the season against the Washington Wizards; hitting a three toward the end of the game that put him over the top. James registered 18 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists in 37 minutes for his 12th triple-double this season.

Shortly after Russell Westbrook recorded his 10th assist Tuesday night, the game was stopped. With five games left, Westbrook needs only 16 assists to get there, which has Fox Sports proclaiming that "as long as the MVP frontrunner doesn't fall into a coma on the court", it's in the bag.

We'll go through the starters, the bench, head coach Jason Kidd, and the opposition to hand out grades for this disappointing game from the Bucks.

Russell Westbrook continues to stack his case to be named Most Valuable Player of the National Basketball Association for the 2016-2017 season, and it's becoming more and more hard to argue otherwise.

The passing of Westbrook leads to 23.9 points per game, combined with his scoring average of 31.9 points per game, he accounts for 55.8 points per game or 52.2 percent of the Thunder's offense.

A series, not the entire year. And in those moments this season, Westbrook has often delivered.
