Russell Westbrook makes NBA history, becomes first player ever with multiple triple-doubles against all 30 teams

By finishing with a 13-point, 17-assist and 11-rebound triple-double against his former team the Oklahoma City Thunder, Russell Westbrook made NBA history.

The triple-double made him the first player in NBA history with multiple triple-doubles against all 30 franchises.

This performance was his 15th triple-double in the last 19 games, however, most importantly, the triple-doubles are resulting in wins especially of late.

Since going 0-5 in Westbrook's first five triple-double of the season, the Wizards have gone 14-7 over the last 21.

The recent run of results of five straight wins and seven of their last eight have brought the Wizards into a very strong position to contend for the 10th and final Play-In spot in the East.

This was Westbrook's 172nd triple-double of his career. With 15 games to go, it would be safe to bet on the former MVP passing the all-time career triple-double tally of 182, set by Oscar Robertson.

Through 50 games played this season, he is averaging 21.8 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 10.9 assists. If those numbers prevail, he would average a triple-double for the fourth season in his career, all in the last five seasons.

Oscar Robertson is the only other player to average a triple-double for the season and he did it just once.
