Russell Westbrook scored 40 points grabbed 13 rebounds and provided 10 assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to a 113-101 home loss against the Charlotte Hornets at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City

His 12 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists gave him a triple-double for the seventh straight game, tying his longest streak of the season and the second-longest one ever.

Russell Westbrook's historic season just became, well, even more historic.

TIED RECORD. Oklahoma City star Russell Westbrook comes up with his 41st triple-double of the season to equal Oscar Robertson's record.

Kevin Love led the Cavaliers with 28 points to go with 11 boards.

IN had lost four in a row to leave their post-season hopes in jeopardy and found themselves 19 points down in the first half before rallying for a crucial victory. "I'm not saying all the time, but clearly he's impacting the game with his rebounding, assists and scoring".

"It's one of those nights, a special night, and something I definitely will never forget".

The Bucks trailed 63-39 at the half and just didn't have it. Michael Beasley led the way with 14 points in 12 minutes off the bench. After the first, he already had seven points and six rebounds, but the assists were lacking.

Westbrook's triple-doubles are also inflated by his ability to grab uncontested rebounds. Harden is producing almost 57 points per game - which, if it holds, would be the most in National Basketball Association history - and he's doing it with an insane efficiency, as he has a true shooting percentage of better than 61 percent at the moment.

The defeat eliminated the Pelicans from playoff contention.

Kemba Walker scored 37 points for the Hornets, who are 1 1/2 games behind eighth-place IN for the final playoff spot. Mike Conley is averaging 20.5 points and 6.4 assists while Marc Gasol is averaging 19.9 points and 6.3 rebounds.

INDIANAPOLIS - Paul George had 35 points and 10 rebounds as IN erased a 19-point deficit to snap a four-game losing streak. Jeff Teague added 20 points for IN, which moved one half-game ahead of Miami for eighth place IN the Eastern Conference.

Klay Thompson poured in 41 points for the Warriors, who won their 12th straight game. Stephenson, P.J. Tucker and DeRozan all received technical fouls. On one play in the second period against Charlotte, Westbrook's attention is fixated on Nicolas Batum during a pick and roll, leaving Hornets point guard Kemba Walker (green arrow) all alone behind the three-point line.

And in other games, Denver beat New Orleans 134-131, NY beat Chicago 100-91, Brooklyn beat Philadelphia 141-118 and Sacreamento beat Dallas 98-87. Chicago, though, plays its final four games against non-playoff teams.

Romo was released by the Cowboys and said he had interest from other teams, but chose the switch to broadcasting for several reasons. As a team, the Bucks shot 3 of 18 from three-point range against the Thunder, tying their lowest percentage of the season (16.7%).
