Editor's note: Russell Westbrook's stats through April 9.

He did it! With his sixth assist Friday night against the Phoenix Suns, Russell Westbrook clinched a record triple-double average for the 2016-17 season. Westbrook -- at 31.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game -- joined Oscar Robertson in 1961-62 as the only players in NBA history to achieve the feat.

Westbrook followed up Friday's feat by notching triple-double No. 42 on Sunday at Denver, which surpassed the Big O's record 41 also set during that 1961-62 campaign.
