NBA: Aminu records career-high six steals

Al-Farouq Aminu came off the bench on Sunday night (Monday morning Nigerian time) to snatch a careerhigh six steals as the Dallas Mavericks beat the Los Angeles Lakers 100-93 in the NBA.
The Nigeria international, who joined the Mavericks at the start of the season from the New Orlean Pelicans, also scored 13 points, including a three-pointer. He also added
five rebounds and three blocks to go with his impressive stats which he achieved in just 20 minutes of action to help Dallas defeat the Lakers.
Aminu has been complementing his stellar defence and rebounding with solid offense lately, shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from three-point territory over the Mavs’ past five games. Elsewhere in the NBA, Russell Westbrook posted his fifth triple-double in six games to help Oklahoma City Thunder edge past the Toronto Raptors 108-104.

Former Nigerian basketball star, Masai Ujiri, is the vice-president and General Manager of the Raptors. Westbrook, the NBA’s leading scorer, netted 30 points and matched a career high with 17 assists while adding 11 rebounds. It was his seventh triple-double of the season and 15th overall.

Enes Kanter collected 21 points and 12 rebounds, while Congo DR-born Serge Ibaka potted 21 points and five blocks for the Thunder, who are in eighth place in the overall Western Conference standings.
