NBA: Westbrook equals record for most triple-doubles in a season

Oklahoma City star Russell Westbrook produced his 41st triple-double of the season on Monday to equal Oscar Robertson's record for most in an NBA season in the Thunder's 110-79 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Westbrook secured his 41st triple-double of the season in the third quarter, matching the record Robertson established in the 1961-62 season.

He remains on pace to join Robertson as the only players to average a triple-double for a season.

Westbrook drained a three-pointer just before halftime to finish the first half with 12 points.

Minutes into the third period, he notched his 10th rebound then posted a 10th assist on Taj Gibson's basket that put the Thunder up 67-42.

Westbrook acknowledged chants of "M-V-P! M-V-P!" with a raised arm.

He finished the night with 12 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists in just 27 minutes on the floor in the blow-out victory.

Westbrook also moved into a tie with Wilt Chamberlain for fourth on the all-time list with his 78th career triple-double -- helping the playoff-bound Thunder record their largest margin of victory this season.

Westbrook will have a chance to break Robertson's record on Wednesday night against the Grizzlies in Memphis.
