Kobe Bryant tweeted a message to Russell Westbrook who had a double-double in the match up, scoring 37 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.

Following the Lakers' 122-105 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kobe Bryant took to Twitter and gave credit where credit was due.


Bryant sent a tweet to Thunder's Russell Westbrook, complimenting him on his performance.


"@russwest44 was cookin tonight. He's got mamba blood runnin thru his veins . You gave it to me tonight lil bro. C u down the road!" Bryant tweeted.


Westbrook tallied a game-high 37 points and 10 rebounds, while Bryant scored 30, despite suffering from an ulnar-nerve contusion in his right elbow that briefly forced him out of the game.
