Watch Thunder @ Suns Basketball online

He remains tied with Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson with 41 triple-doubles.

Russell Westbrook fell two assists shy of a triple double, which would have been his 42nd of the year to break Oscar Robertson's single season National Basketball Association record.

Devin Booker scored 37 points - 21 straight in the fourth quarter - to lift the Suns to a 120-99 win over the Thunder on Friday night.

Further, as Phoenix snapped a 13-game losing streak, Westbrook (6-of-25 FG 23 pts, 12 reb, 8 ast) again fell just short of historical triple-double #42 amid Oklahoma City's bittersweet struggles. It's the highest scoring mark of Westbrook's career, to go with career marks in rebounding (10.7) and assists (10.4).

"I want to see him reach history".

In the most recent matchup, Booker hit his second game-winning buzzer-beater (and the Suns fourth), knocking down a 19-foot turnaround fadeaway for a 100-98 win at American Airlines Center on March 11. It is meant to go to the most valuable player to the most successful team. "Leadership to me was more important than averaging points or field goal percentage or whatever, because I think that's what gets us the furthest and helps us win a championship".

Here are some scattered thoughts on last night's game, which pretty much locked the Grizzlies into a 7th seed and a likely first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs. Unfortunately, his record only lasted 77 days and sadly for Harden, nobody is going to remember that Westbrook was only able to break his record because the game against Orlando went into overtime. Only Oscar Robinson playing for the Cincinnati Royals (now Sacremento Kings) in the 1961-62 season has previously managed this. Suns won for the first time since they shut down a healthy Eric Bledsoe for the season. I still don't expect him to be a big difference-maker in a playoff game. Fans loudly booed Dudley when he wrapped up Thunder center Steven Adams, who also got booed for not attempting a 3-pointer off a Westbrook pass, even though Adams has never made a 3 in his career.

Oklahoma City came out on fire on the third quarter with an 18-6 run and cut the Phoenix lead to 11 at 77-66 on two Westbrook free throws with 6:33 left. With the loss, Phoenix dropped to 22-57 on the season and 13-26 at home. They broke their season high with 71 points at halftime and took a 23-point lead into the break.

Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook put his name in the National Basketball Association record books once on Friday. Forward Marquese Chriss made his 73rd start of the season for the Suns. It was empirically unusual, unparalleled in any other basketball climate, other than maybe a Phoenix game recently when star 20-year-old Devin Booker went for 70 points in part because his team fouled late to extend the game.
