A few days after surpassing Fat Lever and tying Lebron James on the all-time triple double list, Russell Westbrook put on yet another impressive performance with his third straight triple-double as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the New York Knicks with 112-103.

With the win, the Thunder has improved to 11-8 for the season while the Knicks has fallen to 8-9. Westbrook had a very impressive first half as he nearly put up a triple-double before halftime. According to a report by Yahoo Sports, Westbrook only needed 11 rebounds to average a triple double, so he finished the night with 27 points, 14 assists, and 18 rebounds.

Westbrook is currently averaging 30.9 points, 11.3 assists, and 10.3 rebounds for the first 19 games of the season, and now has a league-leading eight triple-doubles. If he manages to keep up his prolific production throughout the year, he will become the second player in NBA history to average a triple-double for the season.

Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson accomplished this feat back in 1961-1962 and he also holds the record for most triple-doubles in a career with 184.

The Knicks were booed off the floor after falling a game behind .500 with Carmelo Anthony having an awful shooting night finishing with 18 points while going 4/19 from the floor. Derrick Rose led the Knicks with 30 points, while Kristaps Porzingis had 21 points.

Westbrook also had plenty of help from Enes Kanter who chipped in with a season-high 27 points to go along with 10 rebounds, while Steven Adams added 14 points and 10 boards. The Knicks were outrebounded by the Thunder 53-40.

Westbrook recorded the second fastest triple-double in NBA history after assisting on a fast break bucket to Victor Oladipo giving him his 10th assist for the night during the 10:41 mark of the third quarter. The Thunder were down by as many as 11 points in the first quarter, but managed to rally back and were up by 11 after the Oladipo bucket.
