OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) --- Russell Westbrook became the first player with five
consecutive triple-doubles since Michael Jordan had seven straight in 1989 and
the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the New Orleans Pelicans 101-92 on Sunday night.
Westbrook finished with 28 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists. The Thunder have
won all five games during Westbrook's triple-double stretch. It was Westbrook's
10th triple-double of the season and the 47th of his career.
Enes Kanter had 17 points and 10 rebounds and Victor Oladipo added 15 points
for the Thunder.
Anthony Davis, the NBA's leading scorer, had 37 points and 15 rebounds for the
Pelicans. Buddy Hield, who led nearby Oklahoma to the Final Four last season,
scored 16 points in his first game back in the state.
