ATLANTA -- With a defensive rebound late in the fourth quarter Tuesday against the Hawks, Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder recorded his 100th career triple-double, joining an exclusive club that includes just three other members in NBA history.

Only Oscar Robertson (181), Magic Johnson (138) and Jason Kidd (107) have hit triple-digit triple-doubles.

Westbrook completed the triple-double milestone when he chased down a missed 3-pointer by Taurean Prince with 2:38 left for his 10th rebound. He finished with 32 points, 12 assists and 12 boards to lead the Thunder to a 119-107 victory.

Tuesday's triple-double was Westbrook's 21st of the season and his third consecutive game completing the feat.
