LeBron James scored 20 points and Anthony Davis scored 25, but the Lakers lost to the Clippers in a disappointing 103-97 game. Westbrook, who was supposed to be their third star, ended up shooting 0 of 11 from the field and 0 of 6 from 3-point range, and at times, his shot selection was suspect.
When the game was done, Westbrook left the court, but one Lakers supporter wanted to confront him. According to reports, one fan exclaimed, “You fucking suck!” Moreover, the 33-year-old chose to respond to it after hearing it.

Westbrook allegedly ordered the taunting fan to tell it to his face when he returned.
Westbrook has frequently been used as the excuse for the Lakers’ dismal performance ever since he moved to Los Angeles. Although he now has a new head coach, it still appears that his major problems with shot selection and decision-making have not improved.
The Lakers lost to go to 0-2, but they still came back from two significant deficits to keep it interesting. However, the club was unable to overcome Westbrook’s, Patrick Beverley’s (1-of-7), and Kendrick Nunn’s dreadful shooting efforts (0-of-7).
A fan apparently yelled, “You f*cking suck!” to Russell Westbrook as he was heading to the locker room.
Westbrook heard him and and said something like “say that to my face.”
The fan then came down and said it to his face. 😮

Lebron James defends Russell Westbrook for his ineffective 0-for-11 performance.
LeBron James is a true team player when it comes to encouraging his teammates. He recently removed some dirt from Russell Westbrook’s name. Brodie has endured criticism ever since he joined the Los Angeles Lakers, and the narrative remained largely unchanged following the Lakers’ most recent loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
However, LeBron James came out to play defence, showcasing what a great team captain he is to everyone. Once again winning the Battle of Los Angeles, the Clippers certainly now own complete authority over the area.
Even though LeBron James gave it his all to change the outcome and win, the truth is upsetting for everyone connected to the team. He only managed to win the game with 20 points, 6 assists, 10 rebounds, 1 steal, and 2 blocks while playing for 37 minutes.
Anthony Davis, who contributed 25 points and 8 rebounds, assisted LeBron James. Russell Westbrook, on the other hand, had a bad day and let the team down. because of his meagre contributions of 2 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds.
