D’Angelo Russell Shares 3-Word Reaction to Austin Reaves After Lakers Beat Bucks

The Los Angeles Lakers celebrated a great win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Players took the game in double-overtime and finished the night with a 128-124 victory. The NBA world was impressed, because no one expected to see the Lakers win. They played on the road and LeBron James sat out the game. The Milwaukee Bucks are strong and they had all shooters ready to win the night. Well, Athony Davis, D’Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves, and the rest of the players had other plans.

Reaves helped the Lakers erase a deficit and Russell was more than impressed. The young Laker finished the game with 29 points, 14 rebounds, and 10-assists, recording his second triple-double of his career.

“Austin ******* Reaves,” Russell wrote on X.

Davis, Reaves, Russell and Co. beat the Bucks with great scoring

Reaves and Davis had key roles in the final quarter of the game and showed spectacular performance in overtime.

“There’s two things you can do: you can fold and go on to Memphis tomorrow, or you can man up and face the challenge head-on,” Reaves said during his walk-off interview. “To be honest with you, I feel a lot better at that point in the game than I did earlier in the game. Legs were heavy early. We got off to a horrible start.”

The Bucks had a great start of the game, but their opponents found a solution to their problem.

“We couldn’t find any momentum anywhere in the game,” Reaves said. “We just kept plugging away. … At that point, adrenaline takes over and i felt great.”

Davis was awesome in the win, drawing praise from Lakers icon Magic Johnson. The big man scored 34 points, 23 rebounds, four blocks, two assists, and two steals in 52 minutes of action.

“He stayed in the game. I know he’s hurting,” Reaves said. “Every timeout, even when we were shooting free throws down there, he was in the corner down here. And his trainer was just working on him. That’s just another mind-over-matter type of thing. He wanted to continue to go to battle with us.

“Anytime he’s on the court, regardless of if he’s not scoring, if he’s scoring, rebounding; whatever he’s doing, he’s making an impact.”
