Russell Westbrook - Leads LeBron-less Lakers Westbrook finished with 24 points (10-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-5 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 126-121 loss to the 76ers.
Impact Westbrook was tasked with leading the Lakers offense in the absence of LeBron James (knee), and he helped Los Angeles stay competitive against a talented 76ers squad. The veteran point guard tied for the team lead with 24 points, and rounded out a strong overall line with nine boards and eight assists, though his numbers were somewhat tainted by his seven turnovers. Westbrook has been playing well of late, scoring 20-plus points in four straight contests and shooting 52.2 percent from the field over that stretch.
