In the midst of all the hurt and pain that comes from the loss of Nip. . .Russell Westbrook one HELL of a game versus the Lakers last night! To which he dedicated to his friend Nipsey!
He also paid homage to Nipsey just before the game.
Details via NY Times:
With just over 40 seconds left to play in a fairly meaningless game between the playoff-bound Oklahoma City Thunder and the lottery-bound Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, Isaac Bonga, a 19-year-old Lakers rookie, badly missed a 15-foot shot. Russell Westbrook, the veteran Thunder guard, snatched the ball out of the air for a defensive rebound.
