Shannon Sharpe on Russell Westbrook’s performance in Lakers loss to Knicks

Russell Westbrook LeBron James Lakers

After falling behind by as much as 25 points, the LeBron James-less Lakers nearly crawled all the way back against the New York Knicks last night, but came up short down the stretch in a 106-100 loss. Russell Westbrook finished with a triple-double on the night, with 18 of his 31 points coming in the third quarter to tie the game.

Afterward, Westbrook addressed LA’s slow starts, saying quote: “We weren’t playing hard enough, simple. When we decided to play harder, it made a significant difference.”

The three-time Super Bowl champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Shannon Sharpe, shared his thoughts on Russell Westbrook’s performance in the loss to the Knicks: “I’m encouraged, he played really well last night and was efficient. It was Russ’ intensity that lead the Lakers comeback in this game.”
