With Anthony Davis out and a list full of players with minimum wages, the Los Angeles Lakers are relying on Russell Westbrook to do a part. They need him to score, rebound, play and occasionally play a little bit of defense, and although the results on that front have been mixed, Westbrook proved at least on Monday that he can get a little slack for Crypto.com Arena's support. staff.

In the first quarter against the Utah Jazz, All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell slipped on a drink that was spilled on the court. Not one to sit still and wait, Westbrook took control of the situation and even cleaned up the mess.

Westbrook may have been able to clean up a mess on the pitch, but he's still in the neck in the bigger one, which is this Lakers season. Through 43 games, into Monday's tilt with the Jazz, the Lakers have a disappointing 21-22. Westbrook himself is averaging below 20 points for the first time since the 2009-10 season, and with the exception of a very surprising run in the second half of the season, he will finish without an average triple-double of the season for just the second time this season. last six seasons.

But hey, if nothing else, Westbrook at least proves that no job is too small for a player of his size. If he is willing to wash the floors, he might warm up to the idea of ​​putting more screens and also playing harder in defense.
