Final update: Westbrook finished the game with a team-high 28 points, 21 assists, and 13 rebounds. Washington fell just short against the Hawks in a 125-124 loss, though. Washington has three regular-season games left, and Westbrook seems poised to finish out the year on a high note ahead of the postseasom.

Update: Westbrook is officially the NBA’s all-time leader in triple-doubles. He grabbed three rebounds just a few minutes into the fourth quarter to bring his career total to 182 triple-doubles. He’s surpassed the legendary Oscar Robertson and can continue to distance himself from the Hall of Fame guard for the rest of the regular season.

Third-quarter update: Westbrook is only a trio of rebounds away from a triple-double. He leads Washington in points (17) and assists (11). The Wizards are trailing 96-79, so Westbrook could have to be productive on the glass early in the fourth quarter before the game gets out of hand.

Second-quarter update: Westbrook is flirting with a double-double at the break. He’s scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting to go along with nine rebounds and five assists. He’s well on his way to a fifth straight triple-double. Washington holds a 62-61 lead.

First-quarter update: Westbrook is more than a third of the way to his 182nd career triple-double. He’s scored 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting to go along with four assists and two boards in the first frame. The Wizards trail 34-32.

Washington Wizards star Russell Westbrook tied Oscar Robertson on the NBA’s all-time list when he notched his 181st career triple-double in an overtime win against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. Bradley Beal left Saturday’s game with a hip injury and will miss at least two contests, so Westbrook has a good chance to make history against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday. The last week of the regular season is underway, and Washington is fighting for a playoff spot. Expect to get Westbrook's best in this matchup.

Westbrook has tallied eight triple-doubles in his last 10 games, and his prop bets options on DraftKings Sportsbook show just how dominant he’s been as of late. His odds to record a triple-double are -400. His points, rebounds, and assist total is 54.5
