Russell Westbrook knew he was resting at night when the Lakers lost to the Kings on Wednesday night – and so did the arena DJ.

When asked about the “drop in shooting” after the game, Westbrook looked at the statistics sheet and replied, “Man, who are you talking to? I can’t do an af-king shot boy.”

The reporter then noted that Dings in the Kings Arena performed the song “Cold As Ice” every time Westbrook missed a hit.

“It’s very interesting. I hope they’ve played like that for the last 14 years. Interesting, they play it now. It’s nice,” he said with a laugh.

During the game, there was a picture of Westbrook on Jumbotron at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento that read, “The game’s coldest player.”

Westbrook finished in the 37th minute with 8 points (14.3%) in a 2 to 14 shot. He was 0-5 out of three who lost to the Lakers 125-116.

Westbrook said the word “put” is not something I believe. “I do my job, I understand that. I’m in a position to try to figure out the best way to play right now. It’s that simple. I’ll figure that out, too. … Simply figure out ways to strike af – king. That’s it.”

After the game, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel said his keeper was “currently in recession.”

That’s a fair estimate, as his shot percentage has plummeted in recent games, with Los Angeles hitting 8 to 40 in the last three games. Westbrook has failed to score 3 points in 6 games and 15 attempts since Dec. 29.

Westbrook’s shootings have raised questions about his suitability for his game in Los Angeles.

After his “ice cold” game, Westbrook said he and the Lakers would “go back to the drawing board to see how effective we are at least in scoring” and “make corrections” when needed. he said.

“I have no excuse. I don’t point my fingers. I always look at myself and understand ways to be better, but I never panic. I never believe in myself and what I can do, ”he said.

Russell Westbrook picked 2 of 14 from the field on Wednesday.

Los Angeles has been carrying the load, relying on LeBron James during the team’s slump. He is making up for the absence of Anthony Davis, who suffered an MCL injury in his left knee in the game against the Timberwulves in December.

James, who scored 34 points in the game against the Kings, says he plans to continue working with [Westbrook]”To turn things around.

“Obviously he’s got a job and you believe in what you’ve done, so he’s going to look great, which isn’t bad for him.”

The Lakers (21-21) play the Nuggets (20-19) in Acesparks on Saturday.
