OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A few weeks ago, Michael Jordan helped induct Russell Westbrook into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and called himself a fan of the Thunder guard's game.

Now, Westbrook has accomplished something no one has since Jordan - he became the first player with five consecutive triple-doubles since Jordan had seven straight in 1989. Westbrook had 28 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists on Sunday night, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the New Orleans Pelicans 101-92.

The Thunder have won all five games during Westbrook's triple-double stretch, and 26 of 28 the past two years when he gets one. Westbrook said he doesn't worry about the numbers.
