Russell Westbrook Pulls Off The Rare Quadruple-Double

He has been Mr. Triple-Double in the NBA for the past decade or so, but Russell Westbrook also leads the world in "quadruple-doubles"—10 turnovers as the 4th double-digit stat. That's the 6th such unique performance of his career, the most by any player in the past 40 years. 

This one came in a familiar place for Westbrook — at Oklahoma City. Russ' night did account for his first triple-double as a Los Angeles Laker, but alas, it came in a frustrating loss for the Lakers, who air-balled a pair of potential game-tying threes in the final 15 seconds. LA was without LeBron James, nursing an ankle injury.

Westbrook did enter the record books on a positive note, though, as well, in this one: He became only the 4th player in NBA history with 7,000 rebounds and 7,000 assists.

He joins only the great Oscar Robertson, LeBron James and Jason Kidd in that 7K Club. 

None of that made Russ a happy man on this night when all is said and done, as he ended the game with his 2nd technical and an ejection, for blasting OKC's Darius Bazley for dunking with the game already decided. 

Yes, it was, as @statmuse pointed out, the full Russell Westbrook Experience in this one.
