Russell Westbrook 4th player to 100 triple-doubles

Atlanta Hawks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder - 3/13/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook posts 100th career triple-double

On Tuesday, Westbrook earned his 100th career triple-double - becoming the fourth player in National Basketball Association history to do so - in a 119-107 victory over the Hawks.

According to ESPN, Westbrook is just the fourth player to attain the statistical feat behind Oscar Robertson (181), Magic Johnson (138) and Jason Kidd (107).

Appearing in 75 games for the Indiana Pacers last season, George reached new personal scoring heights as he poured in 23.7 points a night on 46.1 percent shooting from the field.

Westbrook has spent much of this year ramping up to his effort to become just the fourth player in National Basketball Association history to grab 100 or more triple-doubles for his career. Jerami Grant came off the bench and added 20 points, five rebounds, two steals, two blocks in the win.

Again, the Hawks played well here, and they even tied the game at 103 with 5:15 left after Taurean Prince hit a deep three.

This was a well-played and entertaining tilt, however, and Atlanta even held a 12-point lead going into halftime.

Carmelo Anthony finished with 21 points, four rebounds and three blocks.

Oklahoma City quickly erased a 12-point halftime deficit in the third quarter and led 82-74 after a Westbrook dunk.

The Thunder are now 1.5 games behind the Portland Trail Blazers for third place in the Western Conference.

The Thunder return home to host the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night at 7:00 pm.
