Lakers News: Westbrook Discredits Meeks’ 42-Point Game, ‘Got Lucky’

In the Los Angeles Lakers first meeting against the Oklahoma City Thunder this past Sunday, Jodie Meeks surprised fans with an impressive 42-point performance, which lead to a 114-110 Laker win, possibly the best of the season, against a team that was the best in the West.

After Sunday’s game, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook had no desire to talk about or credit Meeks’ performance.

“There’s nothing to talk about,” Westbrook said with a blank stare Sunday night, annoyed by the question.

Apparently, after a few days to think about it and a win under his belt, Westbrook did have a thought on Meeks’ career-high performance. The Lakers traveled to Oklahoma City Thursday, only to lose by 29 points in Chesapeake Energy Arena, and Westbrook decided it was time to speak up on Meeks’ production Sunday night, according to Royce Young of CBSSports.com:

The Thunder kept Meeks’ to 19 points on Thursday, still a solid performance for the shooting guard, though Westbrook wasn’t impressed. Westbrook scored 29 points, dished out 9 assists and came away with three steals in their victorious rematch Thursday night. Westbrook’s eight turnovers kept Westbrook quiet after Oklahoma City’s loss on Sunday, but he could not help but take a dig at Meeks’ after their win.

The Lakers ready themselves for another back-to-back, as they take on the San Antonio Spurs Friday night, looking to upset the team with the best record in the West.
