With 27 points, 18 rebounds and 14 assists against the New York Knicks in a 112-103 win Monday, Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook is now averaging a triple-double and doing so later in the season than any player has since Oscar Robertson in 1963-64. Adidas Shoes Wholesale China .Westbrook is averaging 30.9 points, 10.3 rebounds and 11.3 assists in 19 games this season. He is one of only five players in NBA history to average a triple-double more than five games into the season.Winning is sustainable, Westbrook said of averaging a triple-double for the season. My job is to go out and find the best way to win games. Right now, we won three straight, and that is the most important to me.The only player to average a triple-double over the course of a full season was Robertson, who posted 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists per game in the 1961-62 season. The era Robertson played in featured much faster-paced games, with around 25 more possessions, 30 more available rebounds and 30 more shot attempts per game.Its amazing what hes doing, Thunder coach Billy Donovan said of Westbrook. Theres also a part of it that hes probably the most unique player in the NBA because youve got great scorers, great assist guys, great rebounders. There are a lot of great players in this league. But he kind of touches it all in every facet of the game. He gets those numbers, but theres so much more to him than that to me, as a coach.Westbrook posted his triple-double Monday -- his third consecutive -- in less than 20 minutes. That made it the second fastest of his career. (He had one in 17 minutes, 35 seconds last season.) In 1955, Jim Tucker had a triple-double in a game in which he played 17 minutes. Tuckers feat is believed to be the fastest ever; however, due?to play-by-play restrictions, it cant be known -- before the 1996-97 season -- when in games a triple-double would have been recorded.Westbrook has eight triple-doubles this season, with the rest of the NBA combining for eight. The Knicks, by comparison, have had seven triple-doubles as a franchise since 1992.I dont really care, honestly, man, Westbrook said of his historic numbers. I just like to win and compete at a high level, play the same way every night. Ive been playing the same way since I got in the league, so I just do the same thing, and [Im] grateful to be blessed and play the game I love.Mondays triple-double was the 45th of Westbrooks career, which ties him with LeBron James for sixth all time. The Thunder are 39-6 when Westbrook records a triple-double, including 6-2 this season.You cant always expect to get numbers and win, Donovan said. It doesnt work like that. Theres more to it than that. The thing Im encouraged by is when he does what he did tonight and we win. Does what he did against Detroit and we win. Theres certain times when [a player] goes off and gets crazy numbers, and his team loses. Winning is the most important thing to Russell. And he knows that his assists, his rebounds and his scoring, being efficient, helps our team win.Robertson is the only player in NBA history to enter December averaging a triple-double. Westbrook and the Thunder have one more game in November, at home against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday. He needs just four rebounds to be averaging a triple-double heading into December, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.I can do a lot of things better, Westbrook said. Every night I will watch film and find ways to be better, even as a leader.ESPNs Ian Begley contributed to this report. Wholesale Shoes For Sale . Despite the cost, effort and an improved steroid test, its possible that very few -- if any -- positives will be detected, Dr. Richard Budgett told The Associated Press in an interview. "We just dont know what the results from Torino will be," Budgett said. China Shoes Wholesale Market . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.shoeswholesaleonlinestore.com/...le-adidas-shoes.html . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season.England wing Jack Nowell says he is keen to step up his fitness levels under new head coach Eddie Jones. Although Jones believes the condition of his squad is adequate for the Six Nations, but must improve for next summers tour of his native Australia.The Exeter player has added 10kg in weight in recent years, but the move from 85kg to 95kg was added muscle bulk and followed knee surgery. I was training like old man, said Nowell, who missed the 2014 tour to New Zealand as a result of the operation.Im a completely different player now. Im bigger now. Anything can happen if get hands on the ball. (And I am) more confident in defence now.Jones vision of an England playing free-flowing rugby and keeping the ball in play may be at odds with his first match - a 15-9 win over Scotland in Edinburgh last Saturday - but suits Nowell, one of two England try-scorers at Murrayfield.And Italy could be the first to feel the impact of Jones tinkering. Nowell and head coach Eddie Jones pose with the Calcutta Cup following their victory against Scotland I like the sound of that because I like to come off my wing and get my hands on the ball as much as possible, Nowell added.I want to get my hands on the ball as much as possiblee and if I am absolutely knackered I wont be able to do that. Cheap Nike Shoes Wholesale. .We have worked hard on our breakdown this week and getting that speed of ball.However, Nowell also accepts the pragmatic approach favoured by Jones in Edinburgh last weekend.First things first is to win the game, Nowell said.If you said to me we scored four tries off a driving maul and I touched the ball once and we won the game, Id take that any day of the week. England head coach Eddie Jones keeps an eye on his players A hint of the future was evident in Edinburgh when replacement prop Mako Vunipolas deft handling made space for Nowells try.Makos got a lot of skills, Nowell said. Some of the passes he does in training are pretty ridiculous. It wasnt a surprise. Hes a very skilful player.If we can get all our forwards doing that, thats going to put us backs in very positive positions going forward.The England team announcement will be on Friday at 10am, tune into Sky Sports News HQ for full coverage.
