Russell Westbrook recorded the second quickest triple double in NBA history in a 125-92 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.

The historic triple double was the 8th of Westbrook's career and the 2nd this season for the Thunder point guard.

He amassed 13 points along with 14 assists and 10 rebounds in the comfortable victory over the 76ers in which the electric superstar was only required to play 20 minutes on the hardwood.

This historic triple double was the quickest the league has seen since 1955, when Jim Tucker of the Syracuse Nationals set the NBA record.

The Former UCLA Bruin had eight assists in 6:34 of the first quarter and didn't register his first field goal till there was 1:50 remaining in the first half.

When asked about his historic night, Westbrook said: "I never go in looking to shoot first, pass first, rebound first, I just come in and play off instincts.”

Westbrook is out there making it look easy and when he finally hits full stride since his return from injury, the Oklahoma City Thunder are a very scary outfit in the Western Conference.
