Russell Westbrook making triple-double history?
No way. Not gonna happen. Doesn't sound familiar.
After an entire season of rewriting the record books around this one specific stat, of course Russ made a playoff mark a reality during his second contest of the season.
This 51-pointer? That's the most ever in a playoff triple-double.
And who else would possibly snag it?
Oscar Robertson (of course) held the previous mark at 43 points, and Russ busted the doors off during a bizarre contest when he simply could not stop shooting. While the loss likely wouldn't have made it to his mantle otherwise, it'll be hard to forget such remarkable totals.

This was one of Russ' weirdest outings, no doubt, but that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve a little extra helping of praise.
After all, it's never happened before.
