Russell Westbrook vs. Hornets defense: It’ll take more than one player to stop the Thunder’s triple-double machine.
▪ Westbrook has 39 triple-doubles, and he’s closing in on the NBA single-season record of 41 (Oscar Robinson, 1961-62).
▪ The Hornets had six blocks in the fourth quarter Friday against Denver, three of them by Marvin Williams.
▪ The Hornets “held” Westbrook to 33 points, 15 boards and eight rebounds (just a double-double) in a 123-112 victory against the Thunder in January.
▪ If the Thunder’s head athletic trainer looks familiar, that’s because Joe Sharpe used to have the same job for the Charlotte Bobcats for four seasons.

Westbrook had a triple-double through the first three quarters in a victory against Philadelphia on March 22 – the 13th time he’s done that this season.
