Bleacher Report: Patrick Beverley appears to call Russell Westbrook “trash” after a steal 👀
Source: Twitter

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LeBron has drawn 3 charges tonight, including 2 on KAT, and the most recent one on Edwards.
Westbrook followed with his first made jumper, a 3, to get LAL within 9 at 73-64, midway through the 3rd. – 9:46 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Russell Westbrook makes a wide-open three. It’s a nine-point game. – 9:46 PM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Patrick Beverley is “guarding” Russell Westbrook. PM

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
Nikola Jokic in just 26 minutes played tonight:
✅ 29 PTS
✅ 13 REB
✅ 8 AST
✅ 10-14 FG
It’s the 44th time Jokic has recorded at least 20p/10r/5a in a game this season.
The only player since the ABA-NBA merger with more such games in a single season is Russell Westbrook (49). – 9:33 PM

Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA
One player in double digits.
Melo – 5-for-10: 13 pts
LeBron – 3-for-12: 8 pts
Westbrook – 3-for-6: 7 pts
Lakers – 2-for-21 3PT: 9.5%
Maybe opponents should just start the game with a 20-point lead? Would it make any difference?
Lakers down 21 at the half, 67-46 – 9:20 PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
The Lakers forced an end-of-clock miss .. then Pat Beverley took the rebound from Carmelo Anthony to make the putback.
It’s that kind of game. Again. – 9:16 PM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
After Nathan Knight got wide open for a dunk earlier, Westbrook took a moment to look up to the ceiling as if to say, “why?” – 9:00 PM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
End of the first quarter and the Timberwolves lead 31-17. Towns and Beverley with 9 a piece. Beasley with 7. Only note: clean up the turnovers. – 8:43 PM

That Russ tech brought to you by Patrick Beverley – 8:16 PM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
The crowd is hanging on every Westbrook shot, cheering the misses. – 8:13 PM

Ryan Ward: Malik Monk: “We got to get it together. I’m sick of saying that shit, though.” -via Twitter @RyanWardLA / March 14, 2022

Multiple conversations with staff members and players have included the some version of the phrase, “at least there’s only a month left” — not exactly the kind of message you hear from a group with realistic visions of playing until early summer. -via Los Angeles Times / March 11, 2022

Los Angeles Lakers star Russell Westbrook is not having his best year in his first season playing in his hometown, and it appears support is minimal. But, he does have the support of one of his peers. “I told him when we played them in L.A. a couple of days ago that I respect how he’s handled the whole year, just in terms of everything he’s been saying and how he’s been handling himself and protecting his family,” Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry told Yahoo Sports. “It is the nature of the beast. And in a certain perspective, they build you up to break you down. The real ones who have done amazing things in this league know what that means. He’s a professional, and I’m proud of the way he’s conducting himself, and I’m there for him.” -via Yahoo! Sports / March 10, 2022
