Westbrook said the fact that George scored a triple double made it more special.

Chalk up another triple-double record for Russell Westbrook.

Russell Westbrook has set an National Basketball Association record with his 10th straight triple-double while Paul George had a 47-point triple-double of his own in Oklahoma City Thunder's 120-111 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

On setting the new National Basketball Association record Westbrook thanked his team-mates and God for his achievement.

Westbrook, 30, is one of only two players to average a triple double in every game for a season, a record he equalled in his MVP-winning 2017 season, when he hit a record 42 triple-doubles. Westbrook passed Wilt Chamberlain for the record with Monday's performance.

"This is the best I've felt mentally", George added. If the Thunder get high-level play from their two All-Stars they should be able to walk away with a win.

Russell Westbrook, #0 and Paul George #13 of the Oklahoma City Thunder celebrate a dunk during the first half against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on January 2 in Los Angeles, California.

"We talked about it right before that play, we talked about it", George said.

Westbrook was given a standing ovation when he achieved the feat by laying on an assist for Paul George in the final quarter of a 120-111 win. Head Coach Billy Donovan's club held Portland to a 1-of-5 shooting start to quickly take a 10-4 lead, then finished off the first quarter on a 13-4 burst. So, each moment is a blessing for me. "But [Westbrook] told the situation, so it was cool to be on the other end of the triple-double". "I've got all the confidence in him".

"Nah, no pressure", Westbrook said of paying off George's pass to get him the triple-double.

George poured in a magnificent 47 points, laid on 10 assists and took 12 rebounds.
