Westbrook scored 24 points, had 10 rebounds and made 16 assists to lead the Thunder to a 123-102 win over the Toronto Raptors – their fourth on the bounce.

One of his assists, in particular, caught the eye, with the 28-year-old throwing a cleverly weighed cross court bounce pass to Victory Oladipo that thread the needle between the legs of the defender en route to a stunning score.

Moreover, Westbrook is only seven triple-doubles behind Oscar Robertson’s record of 41 for most in an NBA season, going back to the 1960s.
