Russell Westbrook’s second season with the Los Angeles Lakers has not began any higher than the primary one did, and one stat illustrates that completely.
The Lakers blew a 102-95 lead with 1:56 left in Sunday’s recreation in opposition to Portland and finally misplaced 106-104. Westbrook went 4-for-15 from the sphere and, with the Lakers up one, inexplicably took and missed a 15-foot jumper with 27 seconds left and 16 seconds remaining on the shot clock.
Westbrook’s 4-for-15 displaying got here on the heels of his 0-for-11 efficiency in Thursday’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. That provides him a 15.4% discipline objective share within the final two video games, based on Elias, tying him for the worst mark by any Laker ever — with himself.
