Russell Westbrook Notches 99th Career Triple-Double

Westbrook had 17 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists for his 99th career triple double and 20th of the season.

Paul George and Carmelo Anthony finished with 21 points apiece to pace the Thunder, with Anthony knocking down five of his seven triples on a night when OKC made 16 shots from beyond the arc (from 36 attempts). Once the fourth quarter started so did Oklahoma City's effort on defense.

The Oklahoma City Thunder hit 16 three-pointers and Russell Westbrook had a triple double to lead OKC to a 106-101 win over the Sacramento Kings on Monday night at Chesapeake Arena in downtown Oklahoma City. It jumped, at least temporarily, to fourth place in the wild Western Conference standings, and hit a season-high 11 games over.500. Just two days earlier against San Antonio, he hurt his left ankle in the third quarter and did not return. Kings rookies De'Aaron Fox and Bogdan Bogdanovic led a steady Sacramento attack that dropped 39 points in the third quarter alone.

Steven Adams is getting banged from pillar to post as the Oklahoma City Thunder look to secure their spot in the National Basketball Association playoffs. Temple's tip-in in the closing seconds of the third quarter gave Sacramento a 79-78 lead. Westbrook's lob to Grant for a dunk put the Thunder up 102-92 with just under 3 minutes to play.

Ferguson only missed one game as he made his way through the concussion protocol, and he won't be limited at all today.

The center was tracking for a big game after scoring six points, two blocks and six rebounds in 23 minutes before leaving the court. They entered the game a combined 41 of 151 (27.1 percent) from long distance since the All-Star break.
