HIGHLIGHTS: Westbrook breaks triple-double record, Nuggets' hearts

The Nuggets led 101-88 before Westbrook's record-breaking assist and by 10 points with 2:27 to play before Westbrook outscored them 13-2 over the remainder of the game.

Westbrook led the Thunder to a 3-1 week behind averages of 32.5 points (second in the West), 12.5 rebounds (third) and 10.3 assists (third).

Oklahoma City (46-34) and its star guard can now prepare for the playoffs.

Westbrook is now the owner of the NBA's all-time record with 42 triple-doubles for a single season. "I'm not going to get into depths, but I thought winning is the most important thing", Harden said to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Final round of Masters packed with 'wonderful storylines'
And Garcia managed to finally hold his Saturday-at-Augusta demons at bay with a decent round of 70 for a 6-under total. Then he bogeyed the 14th and put his tee shot in the water at the par-three 16th, leading to a double bogey.

With the crowd again on its feet anticipating history, Westbrook passed to Domatas Sabonis, whose jumper rimmed out at 7:16.

While the final shot of the game wasn't a requirement for a triple-double, it did give Westbrook his third career triple-double in which he notched 50 points. Tonight, he managed to break a record that has stood since 1962 when he recorded his 42nd "Triple Double" of the season.

Westbrook's 50-point, 16-rebound, 10-assist performance in the Oklahoma City Thunder's comeback win over the Denver Nuggets included a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Russell Westbrook scored his 42nd triple-double Sunday breaking Oscar Robertson's 55-year record to become the triple-double king of the National Basketball Association.

Blessed. Very blessed. It's something you dream about as a little kid to be able to do that on the road, especially from that distance.

Since mid-season, James Harden has seemed to be running away with the MVP in the NBA's most exciting race in years, thanks to greater efficiency and team record than Westbrook. Interestingly, the Rockets and the Thunder will be facing off in the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs in the Western Conference.

- Westbrook scored 57 points while setting a triple-double in a win over the Orlando Magic in March. "I continue to strive to be the best I can be". His status for Wednesday's season finale at home against the Nuggets has yet to be determined. Donovan said he'll defer to his players, who might choose rhythm over rest. Now, it's up to Russell Westbrook who is the "chosen one" to a favorable outcome.
