Couldn't have written it better: the day he equaled Oscar Robertson's historic triple-double record of nearly 50 years when he reached 181 Triple-doubles in his career, Russell Westbrook marched the Wizards to a dramatic and important victory, with a legendary extension - including two winning free throws with a second left on the clock and a winning block on the buzzer. Westbrook could have won the game in legal time, but missed and kept the best for the closing seconds of extra time.



The league's triple-double king reached the goal with typical speed: he scored 4 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists in the first five minutes, continued to contribute in all categories, reached the long-awaited statistics line towards the end of the third quarter and finished the important game. Ninth in the East (which brought it closer to play-in), with 33 points, 19 rebounds and 15 assists. It was his 35th triple-double of the season, the fourth in a row and the 21st in the last 25 games, and this season too he has already secured a double-digit average in points, assists and rebounds - for the fourth time in his career.



On the edge of Westbrook's festive night, Bradley Bill also had a rather stormy evening: he sniped 50 points but injured his back thigh muscle near overtime, and saw his teammates complete the craft without him in overtime, hoping he would not have to be absent any time soon.

Domantas Savonis was the standout in the Indiana ranks with 30, 13 rebounds and 13 assists and Chris Lovart had 35 and 14 rebounds, which did not prevent the fifth loss in the last seven games.

Philadelphia (21:47) - Detroit (48:20) 104: 118



Eighth straight win for the Sixers, who look in great shape for the playoffs. Joel Ambide once again did whatever he pleased and finished with 29 points in 23 minutes, rookie Tire Maxi added 22 and Dwight Howard had 19 and 14 rebounds, in a game that was actually decided after just one quarter that ended in 17 in favor of Philly, who came close to securing the spot The first in the East at the end of the regular season. Jeremy Grant and Sadick Bay scored 14 each for the loser.



Toronto (41:27) - Memphis (33:34) 109: 99



Two teams with ambitions to reach the playoffs met, and by the end of the night there was probably only one left in the race: Jonas Valencionas finished with a double-double of 18 points and 21 rebounds, Jaren Jackson added 20 for his first time this season in the top five and The Morant contributed 12, 7 rebounds and 6 assists, in a win that opened for Grizzlies a four-game gap from 11th-ranked New Orleans and left the Raptors almost an uncontrollable four-and-a-half games away from Indiana, 10th-ranked East.

Pascal Siakam and Gary Trent scored 18 each for Toronto, who suffered a seventh loss in eight games en route to a premature end to a disappointing season.

piece of cake.
