Westbrook ejected as Lakers blow 26-point lead in defeat to Thunder

Russell Westbrook was ejected as the Los Angeles Lakers blew a 26-point lead to go down 123-115 against his former side the Oklahoma City Thunder Thursday.

The Lakers led 56-30 during the second quarter but the Thunder hit back to take a 97-95 lead at the third quarter buzzer before staying clear.

Westbrook recorded his first triple-double for the Lakers since his move in August but also had 10 turnovers in a mixed night before he was ejected late on for a second technical foul.

It was the 32-year-old guard’s first appearance for the Lakers in Oklahoma City, where he spent the first 11 seasons of his NBA career.

Superstar LeBron James missed his second straight game because of an ankle injury.

Fellow star Anthony Davis scored 30 points but could not prevent the 2020 champions from losing a third game in their first five matches.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the Thunder with 27 points to help them secure their first win of the season.
