Another triple-double from Russell Westbrook and a handy contribution from Steven Adams helped the Thunder to a rare road victory today.
Oklahoma City snapped a seven-game losing streak away from home, beating the Brooklyn Nets 122-104 thanks to a typically impressive all-round effort from Westbrook.
The guard recorded his 33rd triple-double of the season, grabbing 25 points, 19 assists and 12 rebounds. That performance saw Westbrook edge ever closer to becoming only the second player in NBA history to average a triple-double across an entire campaign.

Adams, meanwhile, added 11 points and five rebounds in 29 minutes of court time, enjoying his third-straight double-digit offensive outing.
The victory lifted the Thunder to 38-29 on the season and left them in sixth spot in the Western Conference as the playoffs approach.
