D’Angelo Russell Scores 8 of 12 points in final 3 1/2 minutes of Lakers Win Vs The Blazers
Ryan Kelly will get all of the attention today for his game-winning dunk against the Blazers but rookie D’Angelo Russell deserves a few of those congrats. The 2nd overall pick scored 8 of his 12 points in the final 3 1-2 minutes – including 3 jumpers
during a 2-minute span – to give the Lakers a comfortable 9 point lead with a minute left. Then the Blazers hit a couple of big shots including a 3 off of bad inbound pass from Kelly who did redeem himself with the game-winning dunk.
