Wilt Chamberlain had 22 points, 25 rebounds and 21 assists in a 1968 game. "Rest in peace to Nipsey, man".

Westbrook dedicated his performance to slain rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was gunned down on Sunday in Los Angeles. "That was for Nipsey", Westbrook told a reporter during an on-the-court interview after the game.

Playoff bound but losers of 7 of their last 10, the Thunder can use every win they can get in the final week of the regular season.

Westbrook also tied Chamberlain for second all-time in 15-point, 15-rebound, 15-assists games with eight. The musician, like Westbrook a Los Angeles product, was shot and killed on Sunday in Los Angeles.

After jumping ahead by as many as 11 points early, Oklahoma City's lead dissipated throughout the second quarter until Kentavious Caldwell-Pope put the Lakers ahead for the first time since the game's opening moments on a 3-pointer with just less than four minutes remaining before halftime.

"I knew that he had a close friend pass away", Donovan said. "I'm thankful to have these teammates, thankful and humbled to be able to go out and play the game I love". "But I think for Russell, that was something that really meant a lot to him, and he basically talked to me a little bit about it after the game".

The Chicago Police Department must implement a federally monitored consent decree approved in January. Lightfoot, who is married to her wife and has one daughter, is now the city's first openly gay mayor.

Head to head, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings, the home team is 16-6 ATS in the last 22 meetings overall and the Lakers are 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Oklahoma City. He then grabbed his two rebounds and when it was in hand, he then subbed out.

"Somebody I looked up to, somebody that paved the way for a guy like myself growing up in the inner city", Westbrook told TNT.

Adams, a 51 percent free throw shooter, was asked if he missed the free throw on goal.

"I thought we brought the energy level that it takes to win", Walton said.

Westbrook is closing in on averaging a triple-double for a third consecutive season, and no other player has done that multiple times.
