Russell Westbrook Makes History, Records 100th Career Triple-Double

With a defensive rebound late in the fourth quarter Tuesday against the Hawks, Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder recorded his 100th career triple-double, joining an exclusive club that includes just three other members in National Basketball Association history.

The Thunder trailed 66-54 at halftime, then used their big run to take the lead, then hold on in the fourth quarter to get the win.

He finished the night with 32 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists.

A320neo grounding impact: Airfares shoot up as 65 flights cancelled
The aviation sector in the country may remain affected with IndiGo and GoAir likely to face more disruptions in the coming weeks. In an announcement on its website during the day, IndiGo said it has cancelled 47 flights across its domestic network for today.

Carmelo Anthony continued his hot shooting with 21 points, hitting six three-pointers. Jerami Grant came off the bench and added 20 points, five rebounds, two steals, two blocks in the win.

Center Steven Adams did not play after suffering a bruised hip in the Thunder's win over Sacramento on Monday night.

Edin Dzeko scored the only goal in the second-leg Round of 16 game between Roma and Shakthar Donetsk, enough to see the hosts through to the quarter-finals. While OKC will be wise to be cautious with George, as groin injuries are easily worsened by rushing back, they do find themselves in something of a precarious position in such a hotly contested Western Conference. The good news is the Thunder have two days off before a home game against the Clippers on Friday, and hopefully George's injury will be revealed to be minor.
