Lakers Podcast: Quick takeaways from D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle’s bounce-back game

A bonus podcast after Los Angeles’ Friday defeat.

NBA: Preseason-Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers may have ultimately lost to the Denver Nuggets 101-97 on Friday night, but the team was arguably better in the defeat than their were in their preseason opening win over the Sacramento Kings. D’Angelo Russell exploded for 21 points in 24 minutes, Julius Randle was more efficient and showed improved passing ability, and Brandon Ingram got his first two field goals as a Laker (including a banked in three).

To discuss all of these developments as well as take viewer questions about who will make the final roster, what he thinks of the end of roster guys, and more, host Harrison Faigen jumped on Facebook Live after the game in the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
