Russell Westbrook ties Jason Kidd for third on career triple-double list

To make a long story short — Russell Westbrook has a lot of triple-doubles.

Wednesday night, Westbrook notched his 107th career triple-double to tie Jason Kidd for third on the all-time list. Now his eyes are set on Magic Johnson (138) and Oscar Robertson (181).

“I am extremely blessed and humbled to be able to go out and play and compete in the NBA in of itself, and just to be named with Jason Kidd and Magic and Oscar and those guys, I could never have dreamt about even sitting here talking to you guys,” Westbrook told reporters after a 100-83 win over the Cavaliers in which he had 23 points, 19 rebounds and 15 assists. “I take everything in and never take anything for granted.”
