Russell Westbrook records most consecutive triple-doubles since Michael Jordan
Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook continues to amaze this 2016-2017 NBA campaign, and on Sunday evening vs. the New Orleans Pelicans, the MVP favorite recorded his fifth straight triple-double by collecting 28 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists in a 101-92 victory at home.
Two of those 28 points came in emphatic fashion:

'Tis the season indeed — the Brodie Season.
