After becoming only the first player in history to average a triple-double in three consecutive years, Russell Westbrook — now in his first year with the Houston Rockets — could finally be ousted as the league leader in that rarefied statistic this season.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

With Westbrook way off his pace from previous years, Luka Doncic is the current leader in triple doubles with dozen thus far this season.

Hot on the heels of Doncic’s triple-double total are LeBron James (10), Nikola Jokic (8), and Westbrook himself (8). A bit further off the pace are last season’s MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo (4) and Ben Simmons (4).

LUKA DONCIC

Doncic’s latest triple-double came in a January 15 road win over the Sacramento Kings, when he collected 25 points, 15 rebounds, and 17 assists. The second-year phenom leader is currently third in the league in both scoring and assists.
