Historic NBA night for Thunder’s Westbrook

Russell Westbrook has set an NBA record with his 10th straight triple-double while Paul George had a 47-point triple-double of his own in Oklahoma City Thunder’s 120-111 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Westbrook broke a tie with Wilt Chamberlain’s 1969 mark by finishing with 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists.

He clinched the record on an assist to George for a three-pointer with 3:52min remaining in the fourth quarter for his 23rd triple-double of the season and the 127th of his career.

George had 12 rebounds and 10 assists for the third triple-double of his career as the Thunder improved to 37-19 on the season.

James Harden scored 31 points for his 30th straight 30-point game to lead the Houston Rockets to a 120-104 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

Harden seemed hampered by a strained left shoulder early but he warmed up after that to sink six three-point attempts.

He’s now just one game from tying Chamberlain for the second-longest streak of 30-point games in NBA history. Chamberlain holds the top 30-point game streak with 65 in a row.

Luka Doncic had 21 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for the Mavericks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 29 points and had 17 rebounds in the Milwaukee Bucks’ 112-99 defeat of the Chicago Bulls.

The Bucks (42-14) got back to winning ways and have won 13 of their past 15 to consolidate the best record in the NBA.

Kawhi Leonard banked 30 points and the tie-breaking basket with 4.2 seconds remaining to give the Toronto Raptors a 127-125 win over the Brooklyn Nets.

New York Knicks made an ignoble bit of history when their late comeback fell short in a 107-104 loss at the Cleveland Cavaliers, with Australian guard Matthew Dellavedova landing 12 points for the victors.

The Knicks have lost 17 straight games – the longest single-season losing streak in franchise history.

At 10-46, the Knicks have the worst record in the NBA, a game worse than the Phoenix Suns (11-47) with Cleveland at 12-45.

The Denver Nuggets snapped a three-game skid with a 103-87 win over the Miami Heat, behind 23 points and 12 rebounds from Nikola Jokic and 20 points from Malik Beasley, and improved to 18-1 when holding opponents under 100 points.

Indiana Pacers beat the Charlotte Hornets 99-90, the Detroit Pistons got past the Washington Wizards 121-112 and the Minnesota Timberwolves closed out the Los Angeles Clippers 130-120.
