On the other hand, LeBron James put up a triple-double with 32 points, 16 rebounds and ten assists, while Kyrie Irving exploded for 45 points and nine assists but it was not enough to get the win. The Hall of Famer said Westbrook's triple-double numbers show his overall impact on the game beyond his team's record. Harden believes winning more games should factor more into the vote than individual performances, which he labeled Westbrook's record.

Hawks 126, Cavaliers 125 (OT): Paul Millsap scored 22 points, and host Atlanta overcame a 26-point deficit to stun Cleveland in overtime.

After breaking a 55-year-old National Basketball Association record, Oscar Robertson believes Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook can go on and make more history.

Not only did the 28-year-old break the record for triple-doubles in a season with his 42nd, he also chose to win the game for Oklahoma City Thunder in the final seconds. OKC's Westbrook has similar numbers this year with 31.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game for the Thunder, which will face the Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets in their final games of the regular season.

With his triple-double in the books, Westbrook scored his team's final 15 points, including a 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded after a timeout with 2.9 seconds left.

Pineda's ability to miss bats with his mid-90s fastball, slider and changeup is the reason NY has been so patient with him. Montgomery threw five strong innings with High-A Tampa on Thursday, allowing one unearned run and striking out eight.

Westbrook's record-breaking assist came with 4:17 remaining in the game, with the guard dishing it off to Semaj Christon in the right corner for a three-pointer. Oklahoma City's next best players after Westbrook are Steven Adams and Enes Kanter.

"For him to understand and communicate so regularly with his teammates about what they mean to him and how they're helping him do these things, I think it's a good look inside of him and who he is", Presti said.

Danilo Gallinari led Denver with a season-high 34 points while Jokic scored 23 of his own. "I was open and let it go". F Doug McDermott was a late scratch with a sore left knee. He has not joined the team on its now four-game road trip, which will conclude Tuesday in Minnesota.

The Nuggets (38-42) needed to win their last three games and hope the Portland Trail Blazers dropped their last two, but instead Denver took a second heartbreaking loss to the Thunder this season.
