/ 03:25 AM March 15, 2015

OKLAHOMA CITY—Russell Westbrook had his sixth triple-double in eight games and scored 15 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, helping the Oklahoma City Thunder pull away for a 113-99 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA on Friday.

Westbrook checked out with 2:13 remaining, seemingly a rebound short of the feat, but a scoring change gave him his 10th rebound to go with 12 assists.

He has eight triple-doubles this season and 16 in his career.

Enes Kanter had 23 points and 15 rebounds, and Dion Waiters and Mitch McGary added 12 points apiece for the Thunder.
