Russell Westbrook ties Michael Jordan with 7 straight triple-doubles

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook had his seven straight triple-double against the Rockets Friday night and now owns the longest triple-double streak since Michael Jordan had seven straight in 1989.

The NBA record is nine in a row by Philadelphia's Wilt Chamberlain in March 1968.

It was Westbrook's 12th triple-double this season and the 49th of his career. He is the NBA's active leader in the category and ranks sixth all-time.
