Oklahoma City Thunder star point guard Russell Westbrook has down the unthinkable. He has recorded his 42nd triple-double of the season.

Westbrook now has the most triple-doubles in a season. He broke a 55-year record that was previously held by Oscar Robertson.

He broke the record on a fourth-quarter dime to Semaj Christon, who made a three-pointer in the corner. He accomplished the feat at the Pepsi Center against the Denver Nuggets.

He had a 50-point triple-double on Sunday, including making a 30-foot three-pointer at the buzzer for a Thunder win. It’s his third 50-point triple-double, the most in a season in NBA history, according to ESPN’s Stats and Info.

He could add to his historic feat, as he has two games remaining before the season comes to a close on Wednesday night. The Thunder plays the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night. 

Then, on the final night of the regular season, Westbrook and his teammates play the Nuggets at Cheasapeake Energy Arena on Wednesday. 

In comparison, LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar, picked up his 55th triple-double of his career.
