Westbrook recorded 16th triple double of the season

Russell Westbrook had 26 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds in his 16th triple-double of the season, Kevin Durant scored 34 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Toronto Raptors 119-100 on Monday night for their eighth straight victory.

Westbrook has the most triple-doubles in a season since Magic Johnson had 17 in 1988-89.

Oklahoma City has the NBA's longest current winning streak and the team's longest since a 10-game run from Jan. 16-31, 2014.

DeMar DeRozan had 19 points and Norman Powell added 18 for the Raptors, who lost at home for just the fourth time in 2016.

The Thunder earned a split of the season series following Toronto's 103-98 victory in Oklahoma City on Nov. 4.
