He is also the only player in the history of the game to average a triple-double over the entire season for two straight years. He is widely acknowledged as "Mr. Triple Double" for his ability to put together a triple-double on a nightly basis.

Westbrook started the game by dishing out a nice pass to Luwawu-Cabarrot in the corner for an open three-pointer to tie the game at 6-6. In the first quarter, with 3:39 remaining, he made a tough contested mid-range jumper for an and-1.

Westbrook had a horrible night from beyond the arc and went 1-for-12. He finished the game with 16 points to go along with 10 rebounds and 12 assists but the Nuggets ran away with the win, 105-98.
