With a defensive rebound late in the fourth quarter Tuesday against the Hawks, Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder recorded his 100th career triple-double, joining an exclusive club that includes just three other members in National Basketball Association history.
Westbrook sits in fourth place behind Oscar Robertson (181), Magic Johnson (138) and Jason Kidd (107) in all-time triple-doubles. Westbrook's 100th triple-double came against the Atlanta Hawks, who have allowed four of Westbrook's triple-doubles. There have been only two other such triple-doubles in National Basketball Association history.
However, the team's relative inexperience led to their downfall as a flurry of fouls was committed on the Thunder's Patrick Patterson and Russell Westbrook - forcing foulouts by John Collins and Isaiah Taylor.

The Thunder are 16-5 this season when Westbrook records a triple-double and 82-18 during his career.
He also is tied with Harden for the most triple-doubles with 50-plus points with three. Since Westbrook entered the league in 2008-09, the Thunder have gone 482-310 overall (.609).
Since his National Basketball Association debut season in 2008-09, he is leading current players in the league by almost double his next-closest pursuer - LeBron James, who sits in second since '08-09 with 52 triple-doubles after Tuesday's 14th this season (James has 69 in his career). Between his plus/minus and the Thunder's win percentage, there is no doubt of the correlation between Westbrook's triple-doubles and team success.
