Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook made NBA history on Monday.

Westbrook recorded his 10th consecutive triple-double in Oklahoma City's 120-111 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

He tallied 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in the winning effort. He trailed only Paul George, who scored a team-high 47 points.

The eight-time All-Star passed Wilt Chamberlain, who held the previous record with nine straight triple-doubles in 1968.

Westbrook is averaging a triple-double for the season with 21.2 points, 11.1 rebounds and a league-leading 11.2 assists per game.

He has averaged a triple-double in his last two seasons, as well. Oscar Robertson is the only other player in league history to have averaged a triple-double throughout a season.

The fire came out! - Curry, Durant share Kerr's frustration after Warriors coach ejected

Golden State Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant empathised with Steve Kerr after the head coach was ejected during the loss to the Portland Trail Blazers having thrown a clipboard in response to a flagrant foul call. Kerr was enraged late in the fourth quarter when Draymond Green was called for a flagrant foul after he stopped Zach Collins from approaching the rim as he went up for a shot. That drew Kerr's ire and after ranting in one referee's face, he slammed a clipboard down to earn an ejection, with Durant having to escort his head coach back off the court.
