The San Antonio Spurs are staring down one of their last tough opponents before the playoffs roll around, heading to Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder.

Not only will he likely finish the season with a season-long triple-double, becoming the first player since National Basketball Association legend Oscar Robertson in 1961-1962 to accomplish the feat, but Westbrook's 39 triple-doubles on the season ranks just two behind Robertson's record of 41 that he set during that magical season.

Kiwi centre Steven Adams finished the match with 13 points and seven rebounds.

"We gotta win", he said. "Playing downhill there on the last possession, he got on top of the basket and obviously their length probably became a factor there. He had 40, but I felt our defense on him was good".

That started a break, which ended in a Kawhi Leonard layup and foul. "They understand basketball better than they did years ago". "They're going to be like this every night, especially moving forward".

Make it happen, Adam Silver. Earlier this season Westbrook had a streak of seven straight, and he is the first National Basketball Association player with multiple streaks of at least six games.

Donovan's club started game with near flawless energy and execution. The rest of the Heat were 1 for 14, and 0 for 7 from 3-point range.

San Antonio could do nothing offensively in the third quarter. Not one has come against Charlotte. However, the Thunder is the leading team when to compare with the Hornets.

LOS ANGELES - D'Angelo Russell scored 28 points to help Los Angeles end a four-game skid. All the while, his teammates knocked down shots and hit the glass.

Victor Oladipo scored 19 points while Andre Roberson added 12.

Charlotte's Cody Zeller converted a three-point play to slow the Thunder's surge and they wouldn't get the gap below 11 points from there. "We had some things downhill", Donovan noted. But we bounced back, we played aggressive, we stayed together. Ginobili has played in 987 games with the Spurs - tied for third in franchise history with Hall of Famer David Robinson - and coach Gregg Popovich is hoping the veteran will be back.

What a week for the San Antonio Spurs.

"It was a really hard fought game". For the last couple of seasons I've been under the assumption that Stephen Curry would be the best one-on-one player because his virtually unlimited shooting range combined with his ball-handling skills make him almost impossible to guard.
