Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook has joined some elite company in NBA history.
He became the second player in league history to have 20 or more points, rebounds and assists in a game, finishing with 20 points, 20 rebounds and 21 assists in Tuesday night's 119-103 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
Wilt Chamberlain was the only other player to accomplish the feat.
After the game, Westbrook dedicated the win to rapper Nipsey Hussle. The musician, like Westbrook a Los Angeles product, was shot and killed on Sunday in Los Angeles.
"I'm not going to try to put it into words but like I said on the floor, that's who it's for," Westbrook said. "I'm going to leave it at that."
Chamberlain set the lofty mark with 22 points, 25 rebounds and 21 assists in a 1968 game.
Westbrook also tied Chamberlain for second all-time in 15-point, 15-rebound, 15-assists games with eight. Oscar Robertson had 14 such games in his career.
Lonzo Ball files suit
Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball and his company Big Baller Brand are suing co-founder Alan Foster, alleging he conspired to steal millions of dollars from the shoe and clothing line.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court claims Foster concocted "a fraudulent scheme" to enrich himself with company money and also buy property in Ethiopia. It seeks more than $2 million in damages.
The complaint alleges Foster mishandled tax filings and failed to distribute Big Baller profits to Ball.
The lawsuit accuses Foster of making unexplained cash withdrawals totaling at least $1.5 million between 2016 and 2018. The suit says when confronted, Foster was unable to account for the missing funds.
Blake Griffin sits again
Blake Griffin was out for a third straight game because of left knee soreness, leaving the Detroit Pistons short-handed again as the playoff race winds down.
Detroit entered Wednesday night's game against Indiana in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, but the Pistons led ninth-place Orlando by just 1 games.
Griffin has mostly avoided injury this season, playing in 72 games, but the Pistons have been without him lately.
Griffin is averaging 24.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists. This is the most games he's played since he appeared in 80 in 2013-14 with the Los Angeles Clippers.
