Despite LeBron James sitting out with a sore ankle, the Los Angeles Lakers had a successful first game on the road against the San Antonio Spurs, snagging a 125-121 win. Anthony Davis led all scorers with 35 points to go along with 17 rebounds. Russell Westbrook had his best game as a Laker, finishing with 33 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists. Award-winning journalist, author, and TV personality Skip Bayless reacts to Russ’s dominant performance: “Last night I saw hellbent Russell Westbrook. I saw 1000% attack mode Russ. He was a million percent sure of who he was and what he was set out to do. A classic Russ night.”
