Russell Westbrook scored 19 of his 38 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder past the Memphis Grizzlies 114-102 today.

Westbrook also had 13 rebounds and 12 assists. It was his 25th triple-double this season and the 62nd of his career. His season total is the most in the NBA since Wilt Chamberlain had 31 during the 1967-68 season.

Kiwi centre Steven Adams had 16 points and 13 rebounds, Joffrey Lauvergne scored a season-high 16 and Anthony Morrow added 15 points for the Thunder, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Marc Gasol scored 31 points and Mike Conley had 18 for the Grizzlies, who shot 48 percent overall but just 3 of 19 on 3-pointers.
