Kyle Goon @kylegoon
“I told Russ, I said, ‘Whether I play, ‘Bron play, we don’t play, it doesn’t matter. You still gotta be yourself.’ He did that tonight. The way he played tonight was incredible. And we need that from him every night.”
Russell Westbrook has a breakthrough: ocregister.com/2021/10/26/ant…12:41 AM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Dejounte acknowledged that he was looked at LeBron a few times after he scored:
“That’s my guy. I wish he was playing.” – 11:47 PM

Lakers’ LeBron James sits out OT win over Spurs with right ankle soreness theathletic.com/news/lakers-le…11:34 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs are now 1-1 this season as favorites.
They became a 2 point favorite once the Lakers announced LeBron would miss the game. – 11:11 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Think tonight was one of the best case arguments for why you go out and get Russ if you’re the Lakers. His ability to just win you a game when LeBron is out through sheer force of will is very useful in the regular season. – 11:10 PM
Dave McMenamin @mcten
Lakers beat the Spurs 125-121 in OT w/o LeBron. AD 35p 17r 4a 4b; Westbrook 33p 10r 8a 3s; Monk 17p 3a and a +31 in 39 mins; Reaves 10p on 3-of-5; Dweande Howdan combine for 13p 17r 4b. LAL improves to 2-2 with chance to go over .500 tomorrow with a win in OKC – 11:09 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
At a bare minimum, this game was such an argument in favor of a) staggering Bron and Russ and b) keeping Rondo as far away from Russ as possible. We just saw what Russ can still do when he has full control of the offense. He needs 10-12 minutes of that per night. – 11:09 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Final: Lakers 125, Spurs 121 (OT)
The Lakers improve to 2-2 behind big performances from Anthony Davis (35/17/4) and Russell Westbrook (33/10/8) — and w/o LeBron — in their first road test. Malik Monk and Austin Reaves stepped up in crucial moments.
Up next: at OKC tomorrow. – 11:08 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Lakers win in OT: 125-121 over the Spurs.
Anthony Davis had 35, including the go-ahead bucket. Russell Westbrook had 33 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists. Combined 30 for 58 from the floor on a night without LeBron James. A surprisingly epic early season game. – 11:08 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Lakers don’t win that game over the past two years. This is a big part of why they traded for Russ. Makes it so much easier to rest LeBron on nights like this. – 11:08 PM
Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA
Lakers get their second win of the season. Gritty win without LeBron.
Next: @ Thunder – 11:08 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Davis is up, testing out he leg. Similar scene from what occurred with LeBron las game. He, too, will stay in the game.
Spurs took advantage of the 5-on-4 when he was on the ground to tie the game at 114. – 10:52 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Monk pulled up from way, way deep to put LAL up 2. He has 16 points in this spot start with LeBron out. – 10:50 PM
Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
Crunching the numbers. LeBron is on pace to be the first player with 40,000 points and 10,000 assists. It will take about 3 1/2 years. – 9:43 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Spurs have four players in double figures at half: Murray (13), Vassell (11), Poeltl (10) and Walker (10).
Anthony Davis with 16 to lead the Bron-less Lakers. – 9:40 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Halftime: Spurs 62, Lakers 61
The Lakers continue to close quarters poorly. Anthony Davis has 16 points, 7 rebounds and 2 blocks. Russell Westbrook has 12 points and 5 assists. Malik Monk, Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo have helped fill some of the offensive void without LeBron. – 9:38 PM

LAL were +8 with AD sitting for the first 7 minutes of the 2nd Q. Important, particularly with no LeBron. – 9:27 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I’d probably be cautious with LeBron and sit him on both ends of this back-to-back. Not only does he get the rest, but you get two games of Melo playing big minutes at the 4, which is a nice chance to just spam the Russ-AD pick-and-roll with proper spacing and see how it looks. – 5:31 PM

How about I book plane tickets for us
and let’s fly to China together.
We can try to visit these SLAVE labor
