Fans at the Philips Arena in Atlanta stood up and cheered for Westbrook despite the Thunder's dominating performance. But of course it would end up like that.
Here's a quick breakdown of Westbrook's 100 triple-doubles, via sports data provider Opta.
Paul George, Westbrook's All-Star teammate, was forced to miss the fourth quarter due to a groin injury.
The Hawks tied the game at 103 late in the fourth quarter after Taurean Prince drilled a triple. Westbrook needed 736 games to get there, but he's really stepped up the pace since Kevin Durant left for Golden State.
"It's always insane for me, man, to go on the road and just see - not just fans cheering, but kids wearing my jersey", he said. "So, to see that every time is always awesome for me, and I never take it for granted", added Westbrook.
Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Details Leaked
The recent Tomb Raider games have been praised for their strong narratives and clever reimaginings of classic Tomb Raider tropes. The movie just becomes Lara running through the jungle, getting tossed around, and dealing with her emotional baggage.
As you can see, in addition to the congratulatory tweet, the occasion is also being celebrated with a Diamond Card of Westbrook for the game's popular MyTEAM mode, which is a mode that allows players to build their own team, consisting of former and current National Basketball Association players. He had a hand in 13 of those points. Brodie finished with 32 points on 12 of 20 shooting with 12 rebounds and 12 assists. "That's all you see him display is the competitiveness, the never giving up". "That's what Russ is: a guy that's never going to give up".
Finally, after Carmelo Anthony knocked down the last of his six 3-pointers to cap the run, Westbrook headed to the bench with just under a minute to go.
"I like winning", Westbrook said.
It was a game Oklahoma City had to win, too. "It's three days until the game, three or four days, so I'll be all right". They had the NBA's most hard remaining strength of schedule heading into Tuesday - and that included the match against the lowly Hawks.
Westbrook spoke after the game about the unbelievable feat he accomplished. "Only the Sacramento Kings (267), Los Angeles Lakers (258), Boston Celtics (203), Philadelphia 76ers (140), Golden State Warriors (128) and Brooklyn Nets (104) have more than Westbrook's 100". "I'm just happy to be a part of the crew with those guys". "It's something that we should all appreciate, moments like this, and appreciate what we have and who we have".
