As reported by ESPN, Russell Westbrook finished with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 24 assists, the first player in NBA history to post those numbers in the same game, according to Elias Sports Bureau research. The only other player to have a 24-point, 24-assist, 10-rebound game was Isiah Thomas, who did it for the Detroit Pistons in a double-overtime game in 1985.
It was Westbrook’s second career 20-10-20 game, putting him behind only Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson (both with three) in that category, according to Elias. Westbrook’s 24 assists are a career high and the most by any NBA player since Rajon Rondo had 25 for the New Orleans Pelicans on Dec. 27, 2017.
