NBA commissioner Adam Silver made the announcement at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City before tip-off of the game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Brooklyn Nets, part of the NBA Mexico City Games 2017.
According to STATS, LeVert is the first reserve to collect at least 20 points, 10 assists and five rebounds without a turnover since the start of the 1985-86 season.
Allen Crabbe had 15 points for Brooklyn, playing without guards Jeremy Lin and D'Angelo Russell because of injuries and without power forward Trevor Booker after he was traded to Philadelphia before the game.
The Nets have won three out of their last five games, including their last outing against the Atlanta Hawks, while Oklahoma City looks to finally build a rhythm and get back to the.500 mark with what would be a season-best four straight wins.
The Thunder and Nets are in Mexico City to participate in this year's Global Games.
Oklahoma City missed three straight shots in a span of seven seconds and LeVert iced Brooklyn's fourth win in six games by hitting four foul shots in the final 18 seconds.

"We have a preference for coming to Mexico City", Silver said, "because as we look down the road, frankly to see whether there would be an opportunity to even dream about putting an National Basketball Association franchise here in Mexico City, we believe it makes sense as a first step to have a development league team here and to work out some of the issues to better understand what it would mean to have a team in Mexico".
Since Spencer Dinwiddie (5/4/7) spent most of the night in foul trouble and picked up his fourth foul early in the second quarter, he was held to just 19 minutes. Additionally, OKC shot just 12-for-23 from the free throw line.
Brooklyn would lead by as much as 29 as a three-point barrage ended any hopes of a Hawks comeback.
Brooklyn improved to 10-14. The Nets will play two regular-season games in the Mexican capital this week. Nets F Quincy Acy and C Tyler Zeller opposed each other in Mexico City on December 3, 2015, when Acy was with Sacramento and Zeller was with Boston.
"I definitely want to stay away from that one", Atkinson said.
