Playoff Preview: Oklahoma City Thunder

Russell Westbrook enjoyed yet another magical night in a magical campaign as he broke the NBA's single-season record for triple-doubles and then hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer to give the Oklahoma City Thunder victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Westbrook has the better stats than Harden but the latter has led his team to the third-best record in the league.

Westbrook has already clinched his triple-double average for the season - now posting 31.7 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 10.4 assists per game - and is also on track to lead the league in scoring.

They thought they could afford to fete Westbrook, with the Nuggets comfortably ahead in a game they had to win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Now, it's up to Russell Westbrook who is the "chosen one" to a favorable outcome.

Westbrook has three career triple-doubles while scoring 40 points, the most in National Basketball Association history.

"Y'all are probably going to get exhausted of me saying the same thing, but I promise you I've been blessed with so many things".

Oklahoma City is 2-1 against Minnesota this season. But his most crucial points came with an out of bounds play with just under 3 seconds left. Westbrook logged the first triple-double against the Celtics in 231 games. That was until the Oklahoma City Thunder faced the Denver Nuggets. "But I always feel like, as a player, you have a certain rhythm you get into and a way you're playing".

Finally, Westbrook fed Semaj Christon in the right corner for a 3-pointer that pulled the Thunder to 101-91 and gave Westbrook his record.

Westbrook is obviously a top candidate for league MVP, and the obvious victor for some, with career-high averages of 31.9 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game this season. Coach Billy Donovan said it'll be up to Westbrook if he wants to rest during one or both of the Thunder's final two games.

There was no three-point line back then, so Archibald scored or assisted on 56.8 points per game that season.
