Westbrook collected 12 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists for his seventh straight triple-double, helping the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 110-79 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. After shooting 5 of 15, including 1 of 8 from thee-point range, against the Mavericks, Middleton hit just 4 of 11 and 1 of 3 against the Thunder.
And while the focus inside the locker room was on Westbrook's remarkable accomplishment, not to be overlooked was the fact the Thunder played one of their most complete games of the season.
The Thunder now have five games remaining.
Fans in Oklahoma City went wild, and chants of "M-V-P!"
"It's one of those nights, a special night, and something I definitely will never forget".
For just a few moments, Russell Westbrook slowed down.
The benefit is getting the ball into Westbrook's hand as quickly as possible, but his individual production in transition is below average (0.98 points per possession, bottom 30 percent of the NBA) with just 30 percent of his transition opportunities leading to an assist.

Tonight, Russell Westbrook scored 12 points, grabbed 13 rebounds, and handed out 13 assists in a rout of the listless Milwaukee Bucks.
The Thunder All-Star also tied Chamberlain for fourth all-time with his 78th triple-double. Meanwhile, Westbrook looks to make the triple-double record his own with the Thunder at the Grizzlies. I expect Westbrook to get triple-double No. 42 and push OKC to the slight upset.
What can be said about Russell Westbrook's wonderful season that hasn't been already?
"It was the first time I'd seen that", Westbrook said. This column provides a roundup of anything you might have missed from us at Behind the Buck Pass on the previous day, as well our picks of some of the best Bucks pieces from elsewhere online. And Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters Tuesday the team is "hopeful" for his return this weekend. I'm sorry. I've been to six straight Finals, man.
