Westbrook's 13th triple-double helps Thunder down 76ers
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Russell Westbrook recorded his league-leading 13th triple-double with 20 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists, and Kevin Durant had 26 points and 13 boards to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 111-97 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night.
Westbrook's 13 triple-doubles tie Grant Hill (1996-97) and Jason Kidd (2007-08) for most in a season over the last 25 years. Westbrook, appropriately, reached the triple-double by assisting Durant on a layup with 4:14 left in the game.
Enes Kanter contributed 16 points for the Thunder, who clinched a playoff spot with their 14th straight victory over Philadelphia. It is the longest winning streak in the NBA by one team over another.
The NBA-worst 76ers lost their fourth straight and 17th in 18 games while falling to 9-60, keeping alive the possibility of matching the 1972-73 76ers for worst record in the 82-game season. That Philadelphia team went 9-73.
