The D'Angelo Russell hype train stopped at Kobe Bryant Retirement Tour Station on Tuesday night. Russell scored 12 points on 6-of-21 shooting from the field in a preseason loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. He was an astounding 0-fer-9 from three-point range and many of those were uncontested. Three of those attempts were in a tie game with less than two minutes remaining in regulation.
Can anybody here read body language? I can’t quite tell what Julius Randle (4/6 in 35 minutes) was feeling as Russell missed shot after shot.
