Westbrook made a 3-pointer in the final minute that gave George his triple-double. The game between the two teams is the third of the season, as the Thunder walked away victorious in the first two.
A drive and kick to set up Paul George for a 3-pointer made National Basketball Association history Monday night: a 10th consecutive triple-double, breaking Wilt Chamberlain's mark of nine straight set in 1968.
George had 12 rebounds and 10 assists for the third triple-double of his career as the Thunder improved to 37-19 on the season.
Ahead of the game at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, Westbrook was tied with Wilt Chamberlain as the only players to have nine straight games in which they achieved triple-doubles, a feat Chamberlain achieved in 1968. George scored 21 points and Felton added 15. "Everybody I probably went up against - and no disrespect to other teams, they're unbelievable - Paul is the best that we probably went up against all year", Trail Blazers forward Evan Turner said. "Usually, Russ has that by the first quarter".
"There is no other person who has led in triple doubles year after year".
"Yeah, we talked about it right before that play", George said.
"To go out an compete, we are truly thankful to the man above for blessing me and going out and playing the game I love".
Westbrook figured he might as well get a different kind of assist.
George has been on his own tear as of late, averaging 39.7 points per game in February. "It felt wonderful. The energy was awesome".
Paul George is averaging 28.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.3 steals over 36.2 minutes per game while shooting 45.4 percent from the floor, 41.3 percent from 3-point range and 83.6 percent from the free-throw line.
