Russell Westbrook has become the first player ever in NBA Playoff History to record three straight 30 point triple-doubles. Also, Wilt Chamberlain is no longer the only player to have recorded three straight triple-doubles in the postseason. Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Westbrook left his mark on Sunday in Game 4 against the Houston Rockets.

Westbrook, an MVP candidate, has been performing at a high level so far during the first-round series against the Rockets. After achieving a double-double performance in Game 1, Westbrook went on to collect three straight notable triple-doubles against the Rockets.

In the latest matchup between the two sides on Sunday, the Thunder guard scored 35 points, dished out 14 assists, and grabbed 14 rebounds in 39 minutes of action.

Not enough

The heroics of Russell Westbrook haven't brought many wins to the Oklahoma City Thunder in this year's NBA Playoffs. The Rockets have a 3-1 lead over the Thunder, with the chance to clinch the series on their home floor on Tuesday in Texas. Westbrook, 28, has been putting up monster numbers so far during the postseason -- 35 points, 11.3 assists, and 11.8 rebounds in 38.3 minutes per game. The Rockets have a deeper roster than the Thunder team, and more than Westbrook's heroics is needed for Oklahoma in order to get the win over Houston.

An unusual NBA playoff series

The Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls are playing an NBA Playoff series where both teams have yet to win a game on their home court. After four games played, the series is tied at 2-2, after Chicago's opening two wins in Boston, and Boston's wins in Chicago. This is the first case since 2004 and the series between the Rockets and Dallas Mavericks where the road team won the opening four games of a playoff series.

The Celtics will be looking to clinch a home victory when they take on the Bulls on Wednesday at TD Garden.

Isaiah Thomas came up big

Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas had his best scoring game on the road in an NBA Playoff game on Sunday. The 28-year-old scored 33 points on 10-of-21 shooting from the field, while knocking down 12-of-13 of his free throws.

He was a big contributor in the win over the Bulls. Thomas has been averaging 25.5 points and six assists so far in the postseason.
