Thunder's Westbrook scores 7th Straight Triple-Double

James Harden had 21 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds to help the Rockets win their fifth straight.

It is the NBA's longest triple-double streak since the great Michael Jordan went for seven straight in 1989.

Oklahoma City's Steven Adams (12) works against Houston's Clint Capela (15) during an NBA basketball game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Friday, Dec. 9, 2016.

Knicks 103, Kings 100: Carmelo Anthony scored 33 points, including two free throws with 14.8 seconds remaining, to lead NY.

Despite losing on Friday night, Russell Westbrook managed to record his seventh consecutive triple-double against the Rockets.

For a while there Steven Adams could do no wrong as the giant Kiwi rolled past his National Basketball Association career-best in points at the Oklahoma City Thunder's raucous home arena. He is the NBA's active leader in the category.

That's exactly what has now become reality, thanks to the efforts of the Redmond Washington software (and hardware) juggernaut. It was a rather impressive demonstration and all apps were running fluidly with good performance.

The Rockets led by as many as 13 points in the third quarter and took an 86-77 lead into the fourth. "I just go out there and take advantage of the game". Brandon Jennings scored 13 in place of injured Derrick Rose, and Kyle O'Quinn had eight points and 11 rebounds for NY. He made six of seven field goal attempts and five of six free-throws. Steven Adams' 17 points in the first half were a career high for a half.

He kept things rolling early in the third with a nice three-point play matching his career high of 20 points, set at the Lakers last month, then a power move to the hoop and a pair of free-throws taking him to the 24-point mark.

"It gives him an opportunity to see how he's being guarded, how certain movement plays, screening action plays are being guarded", coach Billy Donovan said. After the defeat, Westbrook was in no mood to discuss the significance of his run of triple-doubles, which have his teammates in awe.

For the year, Russell Westbrook is averaging 30.9 points, 11.3 assists and 10.8 rebounds. In total wins, Westbrook averages 30.6 points, 11.6 assists and 11.1 rebounds.

They are followed by the Toronto Raptors, who roared back in the second half to beat the Celtics 101-94 in Boston. He is also just one of two players to average a triple-double, along with Oscar Robertson, once every two games.

First time in his career, Indiana Pacers guard Monta Ellis was held scoreless when playing at least 20 minutes in a 111-103 loss against the Dallas Mavericks.
