Despite “a little struggle” in finding his role in his first season with the Lakers, Westbrook said he remains determined. “My role and what I’m doing has changed every single night,” Westbrook said. “So I’m just trying to figure that out as I’m playing and to be able to benefit and help my team.”

Quick @LockedOnLakers reaction video to the 132-111 loss to the Clippers. To put it kindly, the wheels fell off during the third quarter. And Reggie Jackson absolutely tortured the Lakers and Westbrook. @LockedOnNetwork @LockedOnNBAPods pic.twitter.com/MChE1TVrSh1:08 AM

Reggie Jackson hitting a three after a dustup with Westbrook — then Westbrook trying to answer with a three that clangs off the rim, hits the top of the backboard, then goes in, but doesn’t count — is a perfect summary of this game. AK – 12:27 AM

the lakers have a ball dominant star with questionable defense and a big contract they’ll have to think about trading.

Westbrook’s finishing at the rim didn’t just suddenly become bad. It always has been bad. But if all you saw was highlights of him dunking on rim attacks, you end up w/a warped perception. He just missed basically an uncontested layup…yet again 🤦🏾‍♂️#LakersClippers11:54 PM

Halftime: Clippers 66, Lakers 63
The Lakers closed the final 4:10 of the 2nd quarter on a 14-0 run to turn this from a blowout into a game. LeBron James has 18 points. Malik Monk and Russell Westbrook each have 12. The Lakers need to get something from their bench in 2nd half. – 11:17 PM

More on this storyline

Afterward, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel said the coaching staff has discussed several options to help get the team back on track, including the possibility of bringing Westbrook off the bench. “We’ve talked about everything,” Vogel said when asked if the Lakers have discussed the idea of having Westbrook come off the bench. Asked if it is something that could be seen moving forward, Vogel repeated himself: “We’ve talked about everything.” -via ESPN / March 4, 2022

He added: “But my expectations are still the same. I’m not a quitter. It’s not in my genes. I don’t quit, regardless of what the hell is going on. I’m going to fight to the end, and if it don’t work, that’s cool, too. I can live with the results. But I’m never going to give up or give in because of a little struggle that’s happening this time of the year.” -via ESPN / March 4, 2022

Harrison Faigen: Charles Barkley is going off, saying he’s not saying the word “Lakers” until they win a playoff game, and calls the people at ESPN and TNT “nitwits” for putting “these losers” on television so much. -via Twitter @hmfaigen / March 4, 2022
