Russell Westbrook dropped 27 points, grabbed 18 rebounds, and dished out 14 assists to help Oklahoma City (11-8) snap New York’s (8-9) six-game winning streak at home. The former UCLA guard is now averaging a triple-double this season with averages of 30.9 PPG, 11.3 APG, and 10.3 RPG.
The only player to average a triple-double for an entire season is Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson, who did it for the Cincinnati Royals in the 1961-62 season.
Enes Kanter (27 points and 10 rebounds) and Steven Adams (14 points and 10 boards) both had double-doubles for the Thunder.
Derrick Rose had a game-high 30 points for New York on 10-20 shooting from the field. That was the former MVP’s first 30+ point game as a member of the Knicks. Kristaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony added 21 and 18 points, respectively.
The Knicks will head to Minnesota on Wednesday to take on the Timberwolves at 8 P.M.
