On Tuesday night, Oklahoma City Thunder star guard Russell Westbrook recorded a historic triple-double against the LeBron James-less L.A. Lakers. Westbrook finished the game with a 20 points, 21 assists, and 20-rebounds — making him the second-ever player in NBA history (after Wilt Chamberlain) to record a 20/20/20 stat line.

While speaking to media just after the game, Russ dedicated the performance to fellow Los Angelean, the late Nipsey Hussle, who was tragically gunned down in front of his Marathon clothing store in L.A. this past weekend. "That wasn't for me," he said. "That's for my bro man. That's for Nipsey."

Entering the Chesapeake Energy Arena ahead of the game, Westbrook could be seen rocking a Crenshaw t-shirt from Nip's Marathon brand as well.
