Russell Westbrook ties Wilt Chamberlain's triple-double record

Westbrook is also now averaging a triple-double on the season, with 21.2 points, 11.2 assists, and 11.1 rebounds per game.

Westbrook recorded 21 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists in the game. The Thunder posted a 53-39 edge on the glass.

James Harden led the Rockets with 42 points, reaching 30 points for the 29th straight game - two shy of Chamberlain for the second-longest streak in National Basketball Association history, but far behind Chamberlain's record run of 65 games.

Landry Shamet made four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and scored 17 points off the bench in his debut for Los Angeles, which rallied from a 28-point deficit to knock off host Boston. "We got stops and won a big game on the road". It was also the largest comeback by any National Basketball Association team in the last two seasons.

Westbrook connected on just eight of 21 shots from the field.

The Thunder were up by three points at that point, so the intervention prevented the Rockets from getting up a potential game-tying three-point shot. Atlanta was led by John Collins with 21 points, and rookie Trae Young added 20 points and 11 assists.

Abrines, 25, had played just 15 minutes since late December, often being listed as inactive due to unspecified personal reasons. Jordan Clarkson led the Cavaliers with 18 points.

Justin Holiday had 15 points and Jaren Jackson Jr. finished with 14 points, 10 of them in the fourth.

Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis made a triumphant return to Chicago, helping Washington win its second straight game. Rookie Kevin Knox had 20 points for NY.

Kyle Lowry scored 22 points, and Serge Ibaka added 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Raptors.

It was an otherwise quiet night for Adams, who had six points, nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes on the court. They had a 10-0 run that included three-pointers from Paul and Harden plus three Harden free throws after Paul converted a technical assessed against George for protesting a call. Westbrook has 22 triple-doubles this season and 126 overall.

DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points for the Spurs.

Orlando took advantage of the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo, snapping host Milwaukee's six-game winning streak.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Joakim Noah had season highs of 19 points and 14 rebounds to lead new-look Memphis past New Orleans.

Eric Bledsoe had 19 points for Milwaukee. It was Milwaukee's most lopsided loss and the fewest points they've scored all season.

Jeremy Lamb had 24 points to help the Hornets win for the eighth time in their last 13 games.
