Russell Westbrook of the Los Angeles Lakers rips a reporter for a question after the team’s loss.

In the Los Angeles Lakers’ 107-104 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night, Russell Westbrook had a tough final minute.

The former MVP threw the ball over, left his guy wide open for a dunk, then missed the game-tying 3-pointer in the last seconds, bringing the Lakers’ record to 5-4.

Westbrook was asked about the game’s ending and his terrible set of circumstances after the game.

“You noticed it.” “Don’t ask any questions you already know the answers to,” Westbrook said, giving the reporter a death gaze. “Keep an eye on the game. I dropped the ball and missed a three-point attempt. “There’s nothing to it.”

Westbrook had a good game, scoring 27 points, grabbing six rebounds, and dishing out five assists, but he only shot 10-of-23 from the field. He wasn’t the player the Lakers wanted to take the game’s final shot, especially considering his five 3-pointers during the game.

“This isn’t good enough. “We want a better shot than that,” said Lakers coach Frank Vogel. “We were trying to get Melo to the top of the floor, but the spacing wasn’t terrific,” says the coach.

Frank Vogel expressed his opinion on Russ’ final shot look.

“That’s not good enough. We’d like to take a better picture than that. We were attempting to get Melo to the top of the floor, but the gap was insufficient.”

The Los Angeles Lakers are dealing with the absence of LeBron James.

The Lakers were without LeBron James, who is likely to be sidelined for at least a week due to an abdominal strain. Even without him, the Lakers have a veteran-laden squad that should be able to defeat the Thunder, who have only defeated the Lakers all season.

Westbrook told reporters, “It’s interesting.” “However, you should be aware… I’m the type of person who plays the hand you’re dealt. That’s what we work with, whatever it is that’s available. We’ve never had our entire squad together – not even close.

“So, we just have to take whatever comes our way… Nokia News – Quick Recap
