Russell Westbrook Records NBA's Second 20-20-20 Game

 russell westbrook 20-20-20


 Russell Westbrook had an extraordinary performance last night against the Lakers.  When it was all said and done he had 20 points, 21 assists, and 20 rebounds, making him only the second player in NBA history to record a 20-20-20 game (the first was Wilt Chamberlain).  When asked about his performance after the game by Jason Terry, he told him that he didn't do that for himself but for Nipsey Hussle.  Nipsey Hussle was killed this past Sunday, and Westbrook was saddened by it because he was good friends with Nipsey.  In honor of Nipsey he dropped a 20-20-20 game (20+20+20= 60). Nipsey Hussle was a rolling 60's crip who was trying to bring change to his community and was even scheduled to meet with LAPD the day after he was killed to discuss gang violence and how to help the community.  It is truly a sad situation that has affected millions.  Watch the Westbrook highlights from the game as he pays his respects to Nipsey Hussle.
