After seeing his former team eliminated from playoff contention, Nets guard D'Angelo Russell was asked if he has a little something extra playing in Staples Center. "Yeah, this is where I started," Russell said. "This is definitely where I started. It's definitely a place that gave me an opportunity. Not many guys started somewhere and then that was forgotten throughout their career. You know, the Chauncey Billups, the Nashes, of that group, so I'm trying to consider myself one of those guys."

With the win Friday, Brooklyn All-Star guard D'Angelo Russell helped officially eliminate his former team, the Lakers, from playoff contention. After the game, Russell was asked if that felt like poetic justice, in a way. "It sounds good on paper, but at the end of the day, we're not playing them," Russell said. "We're not competing against them for seeding. Just the win is good enough." Russell finished with 21 points and 13 assists against the team that drafted him No. 2 overall in 2015.
