D'Angelo Russell shoots

D’Angelo Russell capped a 16 point performance against the Minnesota Timberwolves last night with a game winning three pointer as time expired. The win extended the Los Angeles Lakers winning streak to four games and brought their overall record to 25-55.

Russell originally planned on sitting out Sunday’s game after hearing about the death of his grandmother early Sunday morning, but texted head coach Luke Walton and said he would like to honor his grandmother on the court. Teammate Jordan Clarkson told reporters Russell had missed his flight home to Louisville and thought it would be best to try and play through the pain.

D’Angelo played a total of 34 minutes but the game essentially came down to the last possession down two points with the ball in his hands. The ball rolled around the rim and fell through the hoop as time expired as the Staples Center erupted into cheers.
