LOS ANGELES, USA – Russell Westbrook posted his second straight triple double since joining Houston to lead the Rockets to a 126-123 win over the New Orleans Pelicans in the NBA on Saturday, October 26 (Sunday, October 27, Philippine time).

Westbrook recorded his 139th career triple-double to pass Magic Johnson for second on the all-time list, behind only Oscar Robertson’s 181.

Westbrook had 28 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds and James Harden had a poor shooting night but still managed 29 points.

“I know nowadays getting a triple-double seems normal, but I take a lot of pride (in it),” Westbrook said. “For me, that’s a great accomplishment. Now, I’m able to be in the history books.”
