Russell Westbrook ties Darrell Walker's Wizards all-time record for most triple-doubles

The triple-double machine of this generation - Russell Westbrook - has tied the Washington Wizards' all-time record for the most triple-doubles.

Finishing with 19 points, 19 rebounds, and 10 assists in a comfortable 106-92 win against the Detroit Pistons, the former MVP tied Darrell Walker's all-time tally of 15.

While Walker reached that tally in 283 games, Westbrook has done so in a mere 37 games.

Following this game, Westbrook's averages for the season stand at 21.4 points, 10.3 assists, and 10.0 rebounds.

If he does his finish with a triple-double season average, it'll be his fourth instance of doing so - the only player in NBA history to do multiple times - after Oscar Robertson first did in 1961-62.

He started off this season on-fire by recording a triple-double in his first four games with the team, however, the Wizards were winless through his first five triple-double of the season.

But since then, the team is 7-3 whenever he records a triple-double including a huge upset win over the Utah Jazz when he finished with 35 points, 15 rebounds, and 13 assists.

This triple-double now takes Westbrook's career tally to 161, 20 fewer than Oscar Robertson's all-time NBA tally.
