Russell Westbrook has been named Western Conference Player of the Week for the fourth time this season.

The honor comes on the heels of a week that saw Westbrook break the NBA record for triple-doubles in a season. Westbrook also locked up enough rebounds and assists to become the first NBA player since Oscar Robertson to average a triple-double for the season.

Westbrook led the Thunder to a 3-1 record during the week, averaging 32.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and 10.3 assists.

The Indiana Pacers' Paul George earned the honor out of the Easter Conference. The Thunder are back on the road Tuesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves in their final road game of the regular season. The team finishes the season at home Wednesday against the Nuggets.
