Russell Westbrook notched his seventh triple-double of the season on Monday night as the Oklahoma City Thunder bested the Washington Wizards.
Whilst Kevin Durant top scored with 28 against his hometown team, it was the point guard who really stole the show in the Thunder's 114-98 victory.
Westbrook finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists as he thoroughly won his matchup battle against Wizards PG John Wall.

The Thunder have won 11 of their last 12 games and it is not difficult at all to see why. Westbrook's triple-double was his fourth in the last 10, while Durant's point scoring and Serge Ibaka adding 19 points and 10 rebounds mean OKC have weapons at nearly every position on the court.
Westbrook was the first to give credit to his teammates, praising their play for him notching the 26th trip-dub of his career.
"It means that my teammates do a great job of getting open, creating lanes where I can be effective," he said. "And I'm just trying to get those guys the basketball and play my game."

Speculation may be rife about the future of Kevin Durant, but the Thunder do have another superstar on their roster and he's letting everyone know about it with his on-court performances.
