Westbrook, of course, realized George was within an assist of a triple-double late in the game, so the two players conspired to run a play specifically to get George the stat line.
Westbrook had passed to Paul George for a 3-pointer with 3:52 to play Monday night, a bucket that helped put away a mostly comfortable 120-111 win against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Thunder have won nine of those contests.
The triple-double for Westbrook against the Trail Blazers was the 127th of his 11-year career, and the 23rd this season.
The 30-year-old will have an opportunity to stretch the streak to 11 games when the Thunder square off against the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday.

"I thought he had it already", George joked after the win. With 45 points against James Harden and the Houston Rockets on Saturday, George has scored 92 points in his past two tilts.
Westbrook had five assists heading into the fourth, and after a rest, he re-entered the game with 9:36 remaining. Head Coach Billy Donovan's club held Portland to a 1-of-5 shooting start to quickly take a 10-4 lead, then finished off the first quarter on a 13-4 burst.
"Nah, no pressure", Westbrook said of paying off George's pass to get him the triple-double.
"It was special from the second the ball was tipped off; I don't know, just a really, really good vibe from amongst our team in this building", George said. "The energy was awesome". I go out and compete every night and leave it on the floor.
"We talked about it", George, who is averaging 39.7 points per game this month, told the Associated Press.
