Westbrook scored 12 points, grabbed 13 rebounds, and assisted on 13 shots to tie former Bucks great Oscar Robertson for an NBA-record 41 triple doubles on the season. Five other players on the Thunder roster finished with double-digit points.
”It’s one of those nights, a special night, and something I definitely will never forget,” Westbrook said. ”I’m just truly honored to do it here, especially in Oklahoma City.”
It was not a good showing for the Bucks, who were coming off a record-setting month of March where they won 14 games. Milwaukee shot just 36 percent overall Tuesday night, converting on 3-of-18 (16.7 percent) of three-point attempts. The Bucks were also out-rebounded 53-38.
Milwaukee has just four games left in the regular season and remains in fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings with a two-game lead over eighth place Indiana. That’s where the Bucks travel to next, meeting the Pacers Tuesday night at 6 p.m.
