Guess D'Angelo Russell could thrive in LA after all, huh? Maybe he just had to be a visitor, and the Staples Center had to be primarily red. That must've been the issue. Now an All-Star and far removed from the perceived immaturity that got him exiled from Hollywood in the first place, Russell showed out for the Nets Sunday night, capped by this ridiculous sequence.

Yeesh, he really got our man all SORTS of up in the air.
The Nets got punched in the mouth in this one, blowing a double-digit lead and looking stunned just before half. As they're wont to do in 2019, though, they came back again, led by Russell's athleticism, instincts, and downright pretty ball skills.
Don't backtalk the back portion of the East's playoff field again, huh?
