Wesley Matthews made a stellar performance in his return to the Lakers’ lineup after four games.

Matthews was out of Lakers’ rotation for four games, but was ready when he stepped on the floor in the game against the Thunder.

For his part, Jared Dudley urged his teammates to stay ready in order to retain his place in the Lakers’ lineup.

“Game ball goes Wesley Matthews !!!!! Stay ready so you don’t have to get ready!” Dudley tweeted.

Matthews had 16 points (5/7 shooting, 4/5 from beyond the arc) in 26 minutes of action, as the Lakers defeated the Thunder in overtime (112-119).
