Russ's defense was really solid tonight
His man to man has always been solid imo especially when he's really motivated and wants to prove a point. He's not really afraid to guard players. His because weakness has always been off ball defense. I just hope that he can be decent on that front during the playoffs when it matters most.
never heard any complaints on Westbrook defense in the playoffs. top notch.
Yeah, he really killed Ricky Rubio that one time, lol..
Russ is really unlucky to still be carrying the weight of that supermax contract from the thunder. He’s been playing quality basketball for the past couple months.
If he was getting paid half of the 40+ million everyone would be celebrating.
Imagine if Russ gets a new contract from Lakers at $25M per year. That's $20M of additional salary potentially. But we will have to wait until 2024 season.
The only negative this game was his efficiency, but overall good game by Russ
