In the midst of a furious race in the Western Conference, Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook can make some history of his own by totaling 48 rebounds in his last four games of the season — just enough to average a triple-double for the second consecutive year, according to Tommy Beer of Basketball Insiders.

It is safe to say that the Thunder will fight tooth and nail for the remainder of the season as they hope to garner the best position in the standings for the playoffs, and Westbrook competing along.

If the league's reigning Most Valuable Player can haul in 48 rebounds during his last four games (12 per game), he would sit at 791 for the season, giving him the round-up to 10.0 per game and following up an insane 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 10.4 assists from last season with lesser — yet still impressive numbers.

Westbrook is fresh off registering 26 points, 15 rebounds, and 13 assists in Oklahoma City's win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday, and it would come as no surprise to see him activating beast-mode in the last few games of the season to propel his team to some home court advantage in the first round.

The modern triple-double machine is averaging 25.4 points, 10.2 assists, and 9.8 rebounds per game this season, once again flirting with history and in the midst of becoming the first player to average a triple-double in consecutive seasons. Yes, not even the great Oscar Robertson can brag about such statistical feat.

However, it is safe to say that triple-doubles are the last thing on Westbrook's mind right now given how tight the West's positioning battle is with a few games left to play in the regular season.
