From D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young’s incident to Lamar Odom’s courtside appearance and Kobe Bryant’s final matchup against Dwyane Wade, Julius Randle hitting the 8′ game-winning jumper in overtime was just one of the many pieces of entertainment at Staples Center Wednesday night.
Randle finished with 13 points and 14 rebounds, his 33rd double-double of the season on a night where most of the focus was on how Russell would respond after winding up at the center of a video leaking controversy. Russell finished with 16 points (6-19) with four rebounds, two steals and one assist, amidst a sporadic amount of boos from the crowd to start the game.
In the post-game videos below, Kobe talks about what advice he gave the 20-year-old rookie and how Odom’s recovery puts life in perspective. Plus, Wade and Bryant discuss their friendship and their best memories of playing against one another.
