Russell Westbrook finally gets the respect he deserves after his sacrifice pays off for Lakers

On Sunday night, the Los Angeles Lakers not only won their first match of the season, but they also witnessed Russell Westbrook play his game and finally let loose.

For the second straight game, the Lakers started Westbrook off the bench, and it paid off for the team because Russ had his greatest performance of the season against the Denver Nuggets. He had 18 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists for the game. A team-high plus-minus of 18 indicates that he played effective and successful basketball, which is more significant.

Many people have talked about Westbrook making a sacrifice for the team, and it’s obvious that he did. Indeed, the compliments didn’t stop after that. He received a barrage of ovations from the LA fans both throughout the game and after their 121-110 victory.

Chris Mannix, a seasoned NBA reporter for Sports Illustrated, couldn’t help but join the Russell Westbrook euphoria. He is aware that it is only one game, but it very well might be the turning point for the Lakers.

“It’s only one game, but there’s no denying Russell Westbrook can be a sixth man with this sort of impact. He has more than enough talent remaining to succeed in this capacity if he accepts it and performs as well as he did tonight, according to Mannix.

Others were merely impressed and treated Westbrook with the respect he merited.

One supporter remarked, “Russell Westbrook is my goat.”

“Credit where credit is due – Russell Westbrook had a good game,” said another.

The challenge for Westbrook and the Lakers now is if they can keep the momentum going in their favor. Hopes are high they can do, but it definitely won’t be easy.
