Lakers’ Russell Puts Up Career-High in Points


The youngest Los Angeles Laker to ever score at least 40 points in a regular-season game — no small feat, that, considering the franchise’s illustrious history — was quick to point out a key fact underscoring his performance.

“We don’t have anything to lose,” D’Angelo Russell, all of 21 years and 24 days old, said Sunday after a career-high scoring effort in a 125-120 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers at Staples Center.
