The Lakers’ start-up season continued on Thursday night. Russell West Brooke won their second win of the year with a score of 107-104, a thunderstorm for 30 seconds. Both OKC wins came at the expense of Los Angeles.
With 21 seconds left and a two-yard touchdown run, West Brooke advanced to the Thunder defense. When he took one step, he lost the ball off the field and returned it to Oklahoma City.
Lugentz Dortmund extended their thunderstorm lead to Dunk. After Carmelo Anthony’s three-pointer, Dortmund hit two free kicks and OCX gave them a 107-104 lead in less than eight seconds.
In the next round, West Brooke made three appearances against Dortmund and called his own number. He hit back on the edge by publishing the Lakers’ loss.
After the game, West Brooke was asked about those last moments. He did not know much about what had happened.
“You see. Don’t ask me questions that you know the answer to,” said Westbrook.
West Brooke were second in the group with 27 points after a loss to the Lakkers, but came from a relatively ineffective 10-23 shooting night. He made six assists and provided five assists, four times as a team.
During the season, West Brooke averaged 20.2 points, the lowest score since 2009-10, with 8.4 rebounds and 8.1 assists. 44.4% of the field was shot, but only 26.3% of the three-point range. However, there was nothing wrong with trying to win the game.
The Lakers fell 5-4 at the time. LA’s next game is Saturday with the Trail Blazers.
