Russell Westbrook bounced back after a nine-turnover game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The 33-year-old point guard had zero turnovers as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Sacramento Kings. The whole team turned the ball over just five times.

After the game, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel was asked about Westbrook’s performance. “Russ is really invested in this team. You know that?” he said. “He’s not always perfect but he really cares, he really wants to do the right thing.

“I was really proud of bounce back performance after having a high turnover night last game and coming out having zero turnovers tonight. That’s a great exhibit of ball security which I challenged our team, not just Russ or challenge our team to be better with ball security. He was a big part of the win.”
