Russell Westbrook really showed off his athleticism with this buzzer-beating three-pointer against the Lakers Thursday night. Just watch Kobe Bryant think for a second he’s going to defend Westbrook on this play and the Honey Badger blow past him.
Westbrook scored 17 of his 26 points in the third quarter and looked unstoppable. He also has six assists in the game so far to zero turnovers.
Westbrook is starting to go into that mode where he brings the ball up the court and makes no passes before shooting. It’s the same thing he did in the Thunder’s last game against Portland and had success but not ideal always.
The Thunder trailed 30-18 after the first quarter but have since really outplayed the Lakers and lead 78-68 after three.
