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.
For the third time in his career, @russwest44 has recorded 7 straight triple-doubles (1/22-2/5). Michael Jordan (1989) is the previous player to do so:— NBA History (@NBAHistory) February 6, 2019
