sportsmediapro The All-Star Game MVP set career highs with 49 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists for his fourth consecutive triple-double, helping the OKC Thunders defeat the Philadelphia 76ers 123-118 in OT Wednesday night.

Westbrook wore the facial protection after having a bone in his right cheek fractured last Friday against Portland. He had surgery Saturday and missed Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Westbrook became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989 to have four consecutive triple-doubles, according to STATS, and the first since Jordan that year to have back-to-back triple-doubles with at least 40 points. It was the most points by any player with a triple-double since Larry Bird also scored 49 in 1992.Jordan had seven straight triple-doubles and 10 in an 11-game span in 1989 for Chicago. ''It's definitely a blessing,'' Westbrook said, ''but more importantly, I think it's important that we're winning.''He said the mask was little more than a nuisance.''It was OK,'' he said. "That's not going to stop me. My job is to come out and trying to lead my team.'' It was Westbrook's sixth triple-double of the season and 14th of his career.

The Thurders will play @ Chicago tonight at 8 pm.

  •   j0hans0n He's on a tear! He has all the potential to become top 5 player in the league (maybe even top 3) and definitely second most complete player behind LeBron. If he were to limit his itchy trigger fingers specially on them low % shots. But dude is a BEAST without a doubt. He belongs on his own team. As great as he is him and Durant would never win a ship because he's mentality will always be "I take the last shot" which it wouldnt have been a problem at all had the the BEST shooter in the game not be wearing the same jersey he does. Unless he concedes that this is still Durant's team, they will never win. 54min
  •   sportsmediapro @j0hans0n I agree, it is the same exact thing that was happening to James Harden when he was at OKC, he was overshadowed by Kevin Durant. Russell Westbrook is now showcasing his full potential because he is not overshadowed by a more intelligent player within the same team. By the way, Westbrook is now the highest scorer of the NBA, he went from shooting 26.6% to 27% last night, surpassing James Harden, who is now shooting 26.9%, that's insane!! 44min
  •   j0hans0n Yeah he definitely making a case for MVP I want Bron to take it again lol. Russell needs to slow it down a but lol. Bron had 14 assists last night. 19min
  •   sportsmediapro @j0hans0n I want Harden, Westbrook or Curry to take it. LeBron has 4 NBA MVPs!! 13min
  •   j0hans0n Exactly...in want him to retire with at least 8 MVPs lol 10min
  •   sportsmediapro @j0hans0n Even Jimmy Butler from Chicago or Anthony Davis from NO Prlicans, but not LeBron. I recognize his abilities and his MVP caliber, but come on!! Not again! 10min

_music_junkie__ I know I'll never be half the guitarist this dude is, but he's one of my biggest influences, his timing is flawless, sweeping is beyond fluent, picking is on point at all times, and solos and riffs are crushers. All of them. So Ya this is @jasongrin from the band @chelseagrinofficial He plays @ernieballmusicman Majesty's and he is truly one of the most talented guitarists out there. #chelseagrin #jasonrichardson #ernieballmusicman #majesty 2d
