Russell Westbrook struggled in his season debut with the Los Angeles Lakers and couldn’t help his team avoid a 121-114 loss to the Warriors.

However, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel is not concerned about how well Westbrook will fit to the team. According to the veteran coach, Russell Westbrook will need time to adjust to the squad.

The veteran guard had just eight points in the contest, on 4/13 shooting. He also grabbed five rebounds, dished four assists and made four turnovers.

On the other hand, the Warriors stood tall at Staples Center and tipped off the NBA season with a big road win. Stephen Curry led his team to the victory, with his first triple double since 2016.
