Los Angeles vs. Oklahoma City Recap JAN 13TH 2021

Russell Westbrook had 20 points, 20 rebounds and 21 assists to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 119-103 home win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.

It was just the second time in league history a player had at least 20 points, 20 rebounds and 20 assists in a game.

Wilt Chamberlain had 22 points, 25 rebounds and 21 assists in a 1968 game.

Westbrook finished off the feat in the final minute, nabbing Lance Stephenson's miss with 41 seconds left, drawing a large ovation from the crowd.

Whether or not Westbrook would cap off the feat was the only question down the stretch, as Oklahoma City enjoyed a rare chance to savor a win during what has been a rough second half of the season.

Westbrook clinched the triple-double -- his 31st of the season -- with 4:38 left in the third quarter, hitting a contested jumper.

A few seconds later, after a Westbrook steal, his breakaway dunk lifted the Thunder to a 15-point lead.

After starting the game 2 of 14 from the field, Westbrook hit his next five shots to help Oklahoma City separate with a 35-point third quarter.

Jerami Grant led the Thunder with 22 points while Paul George had 19.

After jumping ahead by as many as 11 points early, Oklahoma City's lead dissipated throughout the second quarter until Kentavious Caldwell-Pope put the Lakers ahead for the first time since the game's opening moments on a 3-pointer with just less than four minutes remaining before halftime.

The Thunder closed the half on an 11-6 run to take the lead going into the locker room.

It was the first time the Thunder had led at the half since March 14. They'd trailed at the break in eight consecutive games and 17 of their 20 games since the All-Star break.

Caldwell-Pope led the Lakers with 23 points.

The Thunder won for just the third time in their last 10 games while the Lakers' two-game winning streak ended.

Los Angeles was once again without much of its star power, with LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram among those missing the game due to injuries.

LeBron James scored 26 points to lift the Los Angeles Lakers to a 128-99 road win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.

The Lakers improved to 7-0 on the road for the first time in franchise history.

During the last three games, Los Angeles has trailed for just 11 seconds. Wednesday, the Lakers led from wire-to-wire.

James hit a season-high five 3-pointers, including a pair to fuel an 18-2 run early in the third quarter to put the game out of reach.

James scored nine consecutive points during that stretch.

After going 5 of 14 from the floor in the first half, James was much more efficient in the third, hitting both of his 3-point tries and going 4 of 6 from the floor overall to help the Lakers extend their lead.

A bit earlier in the game, it didn't look like the game would be competitive at all in the second half.

James' back-to-back 3-pointers kickstarted a 16-0 Lakers run that put Los Angeles up 56-32.

But by halftime, Oklahoma City had closed the deficit to 12, as the Lakers shot 1-for-8 to close the half.

Anthony Davis' status for the game was questionable after suffering a jammed toe a day earlier in Houston.

But Davis got off to a hot start, scoring 12 of his 18 points in the first quarter.

Montrezl Harrell added 21 off the bench.

Dennis Schroder, playing his first game in Oklahoma City since being traded to the Lakers in the offseason after two seasons with the Thunder, was 4 of 12 for 14 points with five rebounds and five assists.

The Lakers hit 17 shots from 3-point range in the win, shooting 45.9 percent from beyond the arc.

The Thunder have lost all five home games this season, their worst start at home since 2007. The franchise, in their final season in Seattle, started 0-7 at home that season.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led Oklahoma City with 17 points.

Hamidou Diallo hit a buzzer-beater from about 75 feet out to close the third quarter.

The Thunder's Darius Bazley left the game midway through the third quarter with a right ankle sprain.
