On Tuesday night, Westbrook did his usual thing, posting 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in a 120-111 Thunder win over the Portland Trial Blazers.

George's three-pointer with 3:52 remaining put his teammate and "brother" Westbrook over the top in the record books, breaking Wilt Chamberlain's 51-year-old record as he recorded his 10th-consecutive triple-double.

Westbrook wasn't the only Thunder player to notch a triple-double on Monday.

George, on the vibe in the arena as Westbrook tried to set the triple-double record: "It just felt awesome".

But his teammate, Paul George, as versatile as he is, is not as accustomed to achieving the feat as Westbrook.

"There is no other person who has led in triple doubles year after year".

"I just go play the game the right way", he said.

It took Felton just six minutes to score seven points.

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

Then when he overlapped with Russell Westbrook, Felton became a nightmare for the Blazers on the perimeter, draining two open 3-pointers in the last four and a half minutes of the first half. Go out and compete every night and leave it on the floor, and whatever happens, happens. "The energy was awesome".

"Just to be able to wake and be able to have a job, have a jersey, have a name on your back, because to me that's a blessing itself and something I never even dreamed about as a kid".

"We talked about it", George, who is averaging 39.7 points per game this month, told the Associated Press.
