Trending News & Rumors for Football, Basketball, Baseball, Hockey, Soccer & MoreOklahoma City Thunder All-Star Russell Westbrook recorded the NBA's second-ever 20-20-20 game on Tuesday in a 119-103 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.Westbrook finished with 20 points on 8-of-23 shooting, 20 rebounds, and 21 assists with just two turnovers in 37 minutes, logging his 31st triple-double of the season.Philadelphia 76ers legend Wilt Chamberlain posted 22 points, 25 rebounds, and 21 assists on Feb. 2, 1968 against the Detroit Pistons.After grabbing his 20th rebound to secure the monumental stat line, Westbrook could be seen mouthing "that's for Nipsey" to the fans as a tribute to fallen rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was shot to death outside his clothing store in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon. 🗣 "That's for Nipsey!" 💙Russ finishes with 20 PTS, 21 AST & 20 REB in @okcthunder's win over LA. pic.twitter.com/Klp6IFuYF4— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) April 3, 2019 "That wasn't for me, man. That was for my bro. That's for Nipsey," Westbrook said postgame. "20 plus 20 plus 20. They know what that means. That's for my bro. Rest in peace, Nipsey. I'm just thankful to be able to go out and compete at a high level. Thankful to have these teammates. Thankful and humble to be able to go out and play the game that I love."Westbrook is closing in on averaging a triple-double for a third consecutive season, and no other player has done that multiple times. He needs just three assists to solidify his numbers, assuming he plays in each of Oklahoma City's final four games.

‘That Was For Nipsey:’ Russell Westbrook Dedicates Historic 20-20-20 Night To Slain Rapper – CBS Los Angeles

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - With the outcome all but decided and just over a minute remaining, Oklahoma City Thunder coach Billy Donovan wanted to get Russell Westbrook out of Tuesday's game. Westbrook wasn't having it, waving off Hamidou Diallo. Moments later, Westbrook grabbed a rebound and nearly snagged another as the ball glanced off his fingertips after a miss. On the next possession, Westbrook snagged a final rebound and joined some elite company in NBA history in the Thunder's 119-103 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Westbrook became the second player in league history to have 20 or more points, rebounds and assists in a game, finishing with 20 points, 20 rebounds and 21 assists. Wilt Chamberlain was the only other player to accomplish the feat. After the game, Westbrook dedicated the win to rapper Nipsey Hussle. The musician, like Westbrook a Los Angeles product, was shot and killed on Sunday in Los Angeles. "I'm not going to try to put it into words but like I said on the floor, that's who it's for," Westbrook said. "I'm going to leave it at that." Chamberlain set the lofty mark with 22 points, 25 rebounds and 21 assists in a 1968 game. Westbrook also tied Chamberlain for second all-time in 15-point, 15-rebound, 15-assists games with eight. Oscar Robertson had 14 such games in his career. Lakers coach Luke Walton said his team narrowed in on three keys to beat the Thunder, even with his own depleted lineup - transition defense, taking care of the ball and boxing out. The Thunder outscored Los Angeles on the fast break 34-8, the Lakers turned the ball over 21 times and Oklahoma City won the rebounding battle 50-39. "When they get what they got off of those three things, it's going to be really hard to win the game, even if you shoot the ball well like our guys...
