Watch: Russell Westbrook scores last second three-pointer en route to fifth triple-double

Russell Westbrook has been literally tearing up the NBA this season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder may have lost last night - taking their record to 8-6 - but the fact they even made it to overtime was down to Russ.

The point guard and two-time All-Star game MVP registered 31 points, 11 rebounds and 15 assists, but what makes his night even more ridiculous is the fact he had not one rebound at halftime.

With the Pacers, who were without Paul George, leading by three points with just over two seconds remaining, Russ had to nail a three-pointer under serious pressure off an inbound pass.

As you can see from the video below, of course he did.

Westbrook is currently averaging an obscene 31.6 points, 10.4 assists and 9.7 rebounds during the 2016-17 campaign and alongside James Harden, he genuinely looks like he has a chance of becoming the first man since Oscar Robertson to average a triple-double season.

Russ produced his fifth triple-double game of this young NBA season last night - that's as many as the rest of the league has combined.

However, after a hot start, the Thunder have dropped three of their last five games, despite Westbrook tallying triple-doubles in two of those defeats.

Westbrook will love his numbers, but without the wins, they are a little bit hollow.
