He currently has a Wizards record 16 triple-doubles in only 38 games.
In reality, Westbrook achieved the triple-double before the fourth quarter for the 47th time.
As a result, he is the only player in the last 25 years to have accomplished this feat.

I’ve been a member of this league for 30 years. I’m not sure, man. It’s incredible.”
Meanwhile, congratulations to Russell Westbrook on his historic triple-double.
“As a leader, I take satisfaction in making my teammates better.
Tonight, the players assisted me by making baskets and keeping the game going,” Westbrook said.

As a result, Harden recorded his 12th triple-double of the season, all of which have come since joining the Nets.
And now he has tied Jason Kidd’s franchise record for the most triple-doubles in a single season.
“Different, but both dominant and astounding for James in such a short period to track down so many triple-doubles,” remarked head coach Steve Nash.
“He’s our leader, and another triple-double meant a lot to us.”
“You can’t take it for granted, but you do because he can pull these [triple-doubles] out of a hat every single night.”
Harden remarked of his approach, “You can never be complacent.”
“I can’t be complacent—I’ve never been that way, and I’m not going to start now.”
I believe I can always improve. I believe when you are attempting to do something.
First, you must examine yourself in the mirror to see what you can improve and how you can contribute more effectively to the team’s success.
I have a limited amount of influence over what is going on around me.
But the one thing I know I have complete control over is myself.”
The Brooklyn Nets welcome back Kyrie Irving.
Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets point guard, returns to the team for the game against the Timberwolves after missing three games due to family obligations.

“I felt like we couldn’t manage the game’s pace.”
They were crashing the glass and doing the little things that kept them in the game tonight.
We made a few mistakes, which I believe we can correct.
We discussed it in the locker room and will watch the tape tomorrow.
These games are quickly approaching, so we’ll take the win and see what we can learn.”
