Lakers fans are starting to lose patience with Russell Westbrook. The point guard was once again in great difficulty this Wednesday on the floor of the Kings, and he was criticized for his choices at the end of the match. Matt Pokora, for example, shared his frustration.
The games have followed and resembled each other for the Lakers since the injury of Anthony Davis, and the trip to Sacramento this Wednesday was no exception… LeBron James put out a big performance, at least statistically, Malik Monk again established himself as the second offensive option for this team, and Russell Westbrook was well below expectations for him. In the clutch, his decision-making still caused a stir.
4 Point Game.
Lakers have all of the momentum.
Just over 1 minute remaining.

4 points clear, the Lakers have the momentum with them, just over a minute to go, and that’s the shot Russell Westbrook takes.
Matt Pokora pissed off by Russell Westbrook’s performance
In addition to being criticized by observers, the All-Star point guard was also ruthlessly humiliated by the Kings, including a very unflattering song about him broadcast in the room… A situation which is likely to have consequences on the morale of the troops, but which also has consequences on the mental health of the supporters. The proof, Matt Pokora, like many Angelinos, totally cracked at the end of the match of Monsieur Triple-Double.
He’s a criminal. Must send it LOIIIIN.

Russell Westbrook is particularly frustrating at the moment, with performances well below his career standards. He is also well aware of his difficulties, and he explained himself to the media after the meeting. with words that did not please everyone. Fortunately, he can count on the support of LeBron James, who was quite benevolent towards him despite the frustrating loss in Sacramento.
The good news is that the frustration of Internet users reflects an interest and a passion still intact at home. They are far from having abandoned Frank Vogel’s men, and they are still waiting for a turnaround in the coming weeks. And if Russell Westbrook finds the address, they will be the first to encourage him.
Matt Pokora is an avid Lakers fan and he is starting to boil over the game offered by Frank Vogel’s men. And like many fans, he holds Russell Westbrook responsible for the misfit. It remains to be seen whether the Purple and Gold will find a solution to reverse the situation.
