NEW YORK -- Russell Westbrk doesnt just do triple-doubles in games anymore.Now hes got one for the entire season.Westbrk raised his averages to 30.9 points, 11.3 assists and 10.3 rebounds through more than a month of play with his NBA-leading eighth triple-double as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the New York Knicks 112-103 on Monday night.Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson is the only NBA player to average a triple-double for a season, so Westbrk was asked if his current pace is sustainable.Winning is sustainable, he said. Thats all I know, man, and my job is to make sure we go out and find the best way to win games and right now weve won three straight and thats the most important part for me.Westbrk had his third straight triple-double and the 45th of his career and nearly did it by halftime, finishing with 27 points, 18 rebounds and 14 assists. He had 14 points, 10 boards and nine assists at the break.He is going to put up numbers because of his ability and just how hard he plays and his gifts, but hes doing a lot of other things that the stat sheet doesnt measure, Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. I know everybody is focused on that right now and rightfully so. Its historic what hes doing. But hes really a complete point guard all the way around.Enes Kanter added a season-high 27 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, while Steven Adams had 14 points and 10 boards as the Thunder outrebounded the Knicks 53-40.We got manhandled.

Kristaps Porzingis added 21 points and Carmelo Anthony had 18, but shot just 4 for 19.Westbrk fell just shy of his third straight 15-assist game, but had his highest rebound total of the season -- and one off his career best -- to keep the Thunder rolling after a recent three-game skid.The Knicks led by 11 in the first quarter and things were coming easily, but the Thunder began to grab control with Wesstbrks hustle and Kanters muscle, getting numerous baskets inside to turn around the game.ddddddddddddIt happened so quickly that Westbrk nearly had the stat sheet stuffed before the break.Joffrey Lauvergne missed a 3-pointer that wouldve given Westbrk a 10th assist with 32 seconds left in the half, but the point guard who was MVP of the All-Star Game on this flr two years ago had a shot at the halftime triple-double after grabbing his 10th rebound on the defensive end with a little more than 20 seconds left. He brought the ball up and tried to create, but turned it over on a pass with about 5 seconds to go.TIP-INSThunder: They are 11-5 against the Knicks since moving to Oklahoma City in 2008. ...

They came to New York for essentially a one-game road trip in between home games Saturday and Wednesday.HE KNOWS NOAHNoah hasnt made a huge impact yet in his first season with the Knicks, but his college coach thinks he will. Donovan, who coached Florida to back-to-back national championships when Noah played there, said the center has incredible heart and praised him as a team leader who cares only about winning.Hes going to put his work in, but hes one of those guys in my opinion thats just truly all about sacrifice, team and winning, Donovan said.
