Oklahoma City Thunder vs. L.A. Lakers - 4/2/19 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. L.A. Lakers - 4/2/19 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Before leading his Oklahoma City Thunder into a home battle against the Los Angeles Lakers, Russell Westbrook arrived wearing a blue "Crenshaw" shirt from Nipsey Hussle's marathon collection.

OKC had the game well in hand by the fourth quarter, and fans were able to enjoy a special moment as Westbrook put his name in the history books once again. Both Westbrook and Hussle were from the Los Angeles area. That was for my bro, man. "20 plus 20 plus 20, they know what that means", Westbrook said after the game with the impressive stat line as a reference to Hussle's affiliation with the Rollin 60's gang.

The man accused of killing Nipsey and injuring two others in the shooting was taken into custody by the Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday. I'm just thankful to go out there and compete at a high level. Thankful to have these teammates. A confused Hamidou Diallo initially walked onto the floor, then had to walk back off.

Westbrook told reporters after the game that he wanted to dedicate the accomplishment to Hussle. "For a few guys on our team relationship-wise, it's kind of hit them pretty hard just in the last couple days". For example, George played in Oklahoma City with Corey Brewer in the second half of the 2017-18 season, after Brewer was waived by L.A.in February. He shot free throws before heading into the locker room.

"Just say I did", Adams said. So if you weren't guarding Paul, we should've been in the paint.

Thunder centre Steven Adams was forced to leave the court after telling team trainers he couldn't hear during their 119-103 win over the Lakers. In the first quarter, Westbrook already racked up 10 assists and reached 17 assists by the third. He had 22 points, 25 rebounds and 21 assists in a game in 1968. Westbrook was able to break the triple-double streak record this year with 11 straight and now he has accomplished something else to match Chamberlain.

Golden State also own the tiebreaker after winning three of four against the Nuggets in the regular season.

"It's huge, man", Westbrook said afterward.
