And this is the will of West's Spirit who sent Russ, that I shall watch of all those He has given Me, and raise them up at the last game ...

In another mind-altering display, Russell Westbrook passed Oscar Robertson's single-season triple-double record before downing the Denver Nuggets at the buzzer for a 106-105 Oklahoma City Thunder win.

The Nuggets (38-42) needed to win their last three games and hope the Portland Trail Blazers dropped their last two, but instead Denver took a second heartbreaking loss to the Thunder this season.

Forty-four years ago in the 1972-73 season, Tiny Archibald scored 34.0 points per game while averaging 11.4 assists. The 55-year drought was worth the wait. Since 1983, a player scoring at least 50 while posting a triple-double has only happened five times, Westbrook is responsible for three of those games, with James Harden achieving the feat twice.

"I practice that shot everyday pregame", he said.

D'Angelo Russell's three-pointer on the buzzer lifted the Los Angeles Lakers to a 110-109 victory over Minnesota, despite Karl-Anthony Towns' 40 points and 21 rebounds for the Timberwolves. "That's the most important thing for me is if we get a win and he breaks the record, gets a triple-double, so be it", Malone said.

Westbrook received a standing ovation from the opposing crowd amid cheers of 'MVP'.

Robertson recorded 41 triple-doubles in 1961-62, when he averaged 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists per game.

After Jokic missed, Westbrook grabbed the rebound and the Thunder called timeout with 2.9 seconds left. Moreover, Westbrook and Robertson are the only players in National Basketball Association history to average a triple-double for an entire season.

Westbrook hit that 36-foot 3-pointer as time expired to seal the win for the Thunder and knock the Denver Nuggets out of the playoffs. Westbrook had 20 points in the fourth, including a steal, layup and basket with the Thunder clinging to a one-point lead, and two dagger 3-pointers in the final 1:13 (the second of which was followed by a strut). F Doug McDermott was a late scratch with a sore left knee.
