Russell Westbrook's Triple-Double Season Is Greater Than Oscar Robertson's

Russell Westbrook steals the ball from Memphis Marc Gasol late in the Thunder's victory Wednesday night

If Westbrook played the same amount of time as Robertson, he'd have the best statistical season in National Basketball Association history, and it wouldn't even be close - 40.3 points, 13.6 rebounds, 13.2 assists. Watch Oklahoma City Thunder vs Phoenix Suns Live Streaming online and TV with the guidelines provided here below.

The Suns have only lost one of their last five games but double-digits so they're doing a great job of avoiding blowouts despite their obvious tanking tactics, but I think the Thunder will be too much for them as Westbrook aims for that record-breaking triple-double.

Booker tied his own Phoenix Suns franchise record (49-year-old franchise, mind you) with 21 straight points - the most consecutive points in a single game - as he helped the Suns keep the lead over the Thunder and win 120-99 to break a 13-game losing streak. Rockets guard James Harden finished one rebound shy of a triple-double with 33 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds.

Westbrook made his first basket on a 17-footer with 1:20 left in the half and followed with a three-point play to pull the Thunder within 71-48 at the half.

The NBA superstar is the first player in 55 years to average a triple-double in a season.

Until Friday, the Suns had put up little resistance as Westbrook averaged 41 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists in three previous contests against Phoenix this season.

Reggie Bullock made back to back 3-pointers early in the fourth quarter to get the Pistons within 6.

Russell Westbrook started the game 0-for-11 from the field while totaling a whopping six turnovers in the first half. He has three games left in the regular season.

I think China is well poised to fill the void here in American leadership, and it fits Chinese interests very well. MARTIN: Can you just elaborate on that? Clearly it is time for Mr Turnbull et al to listen to the people.

But it was Booker's big fourth quarter and penchant for excelling in the big moment that sealed the win.

One of the two men in this picture will nearly certainly be crowned as the NBA's Most Valuable Player. Westbrook certainly didn't disappoint in Memphis, scoring 11 of Oklahoma City's final 14 points.

Even though the Suns have lost their last 13 games and have no incentive to win, they sure didn't look like a team headed for the lottery on Friday night.

"Other arenas chant for him, too, probably two other arenas I've seen", Oladipo said. "I've seen enough miraculous things this year: At Dallas, at Orlando and some other places..."

"For what Oscar Robertson did back in the '60s, for that to stand as long as it has, I think really shows how hard something like that is", Donovan said.

Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com noted the triple-double machine replied, "F-k, I'm 6-25, what you want me to do?" when asked about the situation after finishing with eight assists.

— More triple-doubles this season than 10 National Basketball Association teams have in their entire history.

"It kind of gave us motivation, especially Devin, " head coach Earl Watson said, referring to the crowd cheering for Oklahoma City.
