Oklahoma City star Westbrook leads the NBA with 31.4 points a game and averages 10.6 rebounds and 10.3 assists in a bid to become only the second player to average a triple-double for a season -- Oscar Robertson achieving the feat with 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists over 79 games in the 1961-62 campaign.

    (Reuters) - World number two Rory McIlroy has said he still resents the Olympic Games for forcing him to choose between Britain and Ireland and revealed that Tiger Woods sends him texts in the early hours.

    Italy's tax authorities are looking at a proposal from Google to pay between 270 million and 280 million euros ($296 million) to wrap up a tax dispute, a source close to the matter said on Tuesday. Early last year Italian tax police presented a claim against Google for the non-payment of taxes between 2009 and 2013 to the tune of 227 million euros. One of the sticking points to reaching a final settlement with the U.S. giant is a commitment from Google to pay taxes in Italy in the future, the source said.
