Elite Deion Sanders Jersey Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook recorded his 38th triple-double of the season in the Thunder’s 114-106 overtime victory over the Magic. Westbrook set an NBA record for most points scored in a triple-double with 57 points to go with 13 rebounds and 11 assists.
An honorable mention goes to Pelicans forward Anthony Davis, who dropped 30 points and pulled down 13 boards to lead New Orleans to a 121-118 win over the visiting Mavericks. Davis is the first player since Shaquille O’Neal in 2000 to have at least 30 points and 13 rebounds in four straight games.

This stat is perhaps more reflective of his season than Wednesday’s game, but it’s important to point out. ESPN’s Royce Young noted the point guard played over 40 minutes (42) for just the fifth time this season. Every 40-minute game has come in overtime.
Considering the season he’s having, it’s impressive he hasn’t had any more games of 40-minutes. For reference, MVP candidate James Harden has 15 40-minute games while LeBron James has 20.
What better record than to pass your friend-turned-enemy? Westbrook passed Durant for most 40-point games in a single season in Thunder history. Durant had 14 40-point games in 2013-14 and Westbrook now has 15 with eight games left.
The decision may come down to head coach Mike D’Antoni but it appears he’ll leave it up to Harden.
He loves to play, and he thinks he owes it to the people to play, and I think it’s remarkable, D’Antoni told USA Today. I think it’s great. Now we’ll watch, as we get a little closer, as we get to the last two or three games we’ll have a week before, so maybe we can do something (regarding rest) then, but we’ll make sure he’s ready to go when we open up the playoffs. But again, I trust him, I trust the medical staff.
