Russell Westbrook had an impressive night during Oklahoma City Thunder's game against the Los Angeles Lakers after he finished with 20 points, 20 rebounds, and 21 assists.

Westbrook also dedicated his 20-20-20 triple-double to the late Nipsey Hussle. The Victory Lap rapper was fatally shot on Sunday, March 31 outside of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles. 

After making his 20th rebound, Westbrook shouted, "That's for Nipsey."

The only other person to achieve the 20-20-20 triple-double stat in NBA history was Wilt Chamberlain back in 1968 when he got 22 points, 25 rebounds, and 21 assists, ESPN reports.

"That wasn't for me. That was for my bro. That was for Nipsey. 20 plus 20 plus 20. They know what that means," Westbrook said after the game, making a reference to the Rollin 60's.
