Russell Westbrook tied the NBA record for triple-doubles as he helped the Washington Wizards to a 133-132 win against the Indiana Pacers.

Westbrook scored 33 points, 19 rebounds and 15 assists to move level with Oscar Robertson on 181 triple-doubles.

“To be in a conversation with Oscar, I just want to thank him, because he set the stage,” Westbrook said.

“I take a lot of pride in doing everything that impacts winning, as much as I can leave it on the floor.”

Robertson, who played for Cincinnati and Milwaukee during the 1960s and 70s, is regarded as one of the NBA’s all-time greats.
