LAL’s sore finger returned, now a mature veteran PG

Russell looked back on Game 1.

D’Angelo Russell of the LA Lakers had an interview with the ‘LA Times’ on the 18th (Korean time). Russell brought up a story about the first leg of the first round of the last playoff against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Russell got off to a shaky start in Game 1. He attempted five field goals in the first quarter and only succeeded in one.

But Russell was Russell. He continued to attack without being intimidated by the Yatoo hunting. He also did not miss the assist, which is the duty of a point guard. As a result, Russell finished the game with 19 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists, including 10 points in the 2nd quarter.

“I’m the one who has to make the shot,” Russell said. I saw it go in. After that, I made a few more shots.”

Emotion control is the reason why Russell did not break down despite the initial sluggishness.

“You can be sluggish in a really important game,” Russell said.

The series between the Lakers and Memphis is a match between the 7th seed and the 2nd seed. In other words, the Lakers are aiming for an upset. But the Lakers boasted cohesion beyond Memphis, with five players scoring 19 or more points in Game 1. Thanks to that, the Lakers won by 16 points.

“This is the playoff period.스포츠토토 Anyone can shoot a lot and anyone can score a lot,” Russell said.

Russell was drafted by the Lakers with the 2nd overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. But Russell was the Lakers’ sore finger. He did not perform as well as expected and caused controversy over his private life.

The returning Russell was different. As an 8-year veteran, he maintains maturity on and off the court and leads the team. Can Russell continue his momentum and win the second game? The second round will be held on the 20th.
