​Oklahoma City Thunder guard ​Russell Westbrook made some history in a 117-95 win over the Grizzlies Thursday night.


With an offensive rebound and putback late in the third quarter, Westbrook secured his eighth straight triple-double, passing Michael Jordan's streak of seven straight games. Back in his MVP campaign in 2016, he posted two seven-game streaks, but was never able to break through for number eight.

Westbrook finished with 15 points, 15 assists and 13 boards in the win, including this alley-oop to teammate Terrance Ferguson.

The dynamic point guard now owns the longest streak of triple-doubles since Wilt Chamberlain's nine back in 1968. With his stat line Thursday, he now has 125 career triple-doubles, good for third on the all-time list behind only Magic Johnson (138) and the "Big-O" Oscar Roberston (181).


Westbrook has made what was once a pretty rare feat, a regularity. The point guard is currently averaging a triple-double for the third consecutive season with 21.4 points, 11 rebounds and a ​league-leading 11.1 assists per game.


No doubt Westbrook will be aiming to tie Wilt's record on Saturday when the Thunder take on James Harden and the Houston Rockets.
