Russell Westbrook made a great performance vs the Milwaukee Bucks, yet he couldn’t lead the Los Angeles Lakers to the victory (102-109).

Westbrook went for 19 points (7/16 shooting, 2/5 from beyond the arc), 15 assists and just three turnovers in the contest. However, theses numbers were not enough for the Lakers to defeat Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks.

“I think Russell Westbrook had his best game as a Laker tonight,” Frank Vogel told reporters, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation. The former NBA MVP is attempting to fit to the playing style of his new team and is getting better game after game. He is averaging 19.4 points, 8.7 rebounds and 8.3 assists this season.
