In the absence of Lebron James, Russell Westbrook scored 27 pts, 5 assists and 6 rebounds. Anthony Davis also put 29 pts and 18 rebs.  Carmelo Anthony put 21 pts coming from the bench.

According to Skip Bayless, Lakers had enough future Hall of Famers to win this game even without Lebron. He said “So its 4 Hall of Famers left on the floor. Against an Oklahoma city team that has lost 6 games”.

This loss was “incomprehensible” to Skip. He added “They had a 19 pts lead. But even worse. With 9:42 left in the basketball game, they had a 9 pts lead. And you can’t hold that with 4 Hall of Famers at home against a team that has lost his 6 other games”.

Praising SGA he said “Shai Gilgeous-Alexander made a statement in the 4th quarter”. He scored 28 pts in the game. He made a 3-pointer from the logo to increase the lead by 6 with 1:19 left at the clock in 4th quarter.

Whereas Westbrook took a failed 3 point attempt to tie the game with 3 secs left on the clock. On while Skip Bayless said, “He [SGA] wanted Russ and he got Russ.”

Skip further added “I think it was all aimed at Russell Westbrook. Because he is now the man in the OKC and he saying ‘ I am better than Russell Westbrook'”
