Russell Westbrook has become the first player ever to a achieve stat of at least 150 points, 50 rebounds, and 50 assists in the opening five games of an NBA Playoffs series, reveals ESPN's SportsCenter.

The Oklahoma City Thunder guard created NBA history in the first-round series between his team and the Houston Rockets. The guard managed to score 187 points, grab 58 rebounds and dish out 54 assists in the first five games against the Rockets.

Even Westbrook's heroics weren't enough for the Thunder to make it past Houston and reach the Western Conference semi-finals. The Rockets booked their place in the following stage after a 105-99 win over the Thunder on Tuesday in Texas, which gave them a clinching 4-1 series result.

The team from Texas will be meeting next to the winner of the series between the San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies. The Spurs are on the verge of beating the Grizzlies as they have a 3-2 lead.

That wasn't all from Westbrook

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook finished the series against the Houston Rockets averaging a triple-double. The guard finished three of five games in triple-double figures and twice achieved a double-double stat. Throughout the series, the 28-year-old averaged 37.4 points, 11.6 rebounds and 10.8 assists in 38.8 minutes per game, reveals ESPN.

Westbrook had a memorable outing in Game 2 against the Rockets, ending the game with a monster triple-double performance.

The 2015 and 2016 NBA All-Star game MVP scored 51 points, had ten rebounds and assisted 13 times during the match in 41 minutes of action. Though the guard had a tremendous performance in Game 5 as well, he fell just of landing another triple-double -- 47 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists in 42 minutes spent on the floor.

Kevin Durant achieves a milestone as well

Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant has become the 32nd player in NBA playoffs history to have at least 100+ steals and 100+ blocks, according to NBA.com/Stats Twitter. The 2008 Rookie of the Year had just one steal and blocked three shots in four games of his team's first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers.

In Game 4 of the series, Durant had two blocks and a steal in 20 minutes of action. It should be noted that the 28-year-old didn't play in Game 2 and Game 3 due to an injury.

Durant, a former teammate of Russell Westbrook, will have a chance to add more records to his name this postseason. The Warriors have reached the Western Conference semi-finals after sweeping 4-0 the Trail Blazers.

Next up for the Warriors will be the winner of the series between the Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz. The Jazz has a 3-2 lead over the Clippers, and a chance to clinch the series on their home floor in the upcoming Game 6 in Salt Lake City.
