On Sunday afternoon, Russell Westbrook could make history, again, but this time by taking sole possession of a record in the NBA history books. On Friday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder guard recorded the stats necessary to help him average a triple-double for the 2016-17 NBA season. Only Oscar Robertson has achieved that feat and it was over five decades ago. In today's matchup against the Denver Nuggets, Westbrook could record his record-breaking 42nd triple-double. He'll try to guide his Thunder to the win on the road against a team that could be eliminated from the playoffs with a loss.

Here's a look at today's game preview as well as how to watch it online or on television.

OKC vs. Denver preview

The NBA playoff standings currently reflect that the Oklahoma City Thunder have clinched a spot in the postseason. They'll be taking on James Harden and the Houston Rockets in a first-round matchup, making for some exciting action. However, there's still a few games left on their regular-season slate. On Sunday, they could possibly crush Denver's chances at a postseason berth.

As it stands, the Denver Nuggets are listed at the No. 9 spot in the Western Conference trailing the Portland Trail Blazers. Portland grabbed a 101-86 victory over Utah on Saturday night, moving their record to 40-40.

The Nuggets are 38-41 and still clinging to hopes of stealing that No. 8 spot away. A win today will help keep those hopes alive.

The latest NBA game odds have the home team as a four-point favorite today. On the moneyline, Denver is a -175 favorite, while OKC is a +155 underdog. The over/under points total is at 229.5 points for the complete game.

At home, the Nuggets are 21-18-1 against the spread, and they're also 18-16-1 ATS as favorite. OKC is 15-23-1 ATS on the road, and 11-17-1 as the underdog team.
