Things simply didn't go according to plan for Russell Westbrook in his debut game with the Los Angeles Lakers. With the Lakers taking on Golden State, the hope was Westbrook could have a big game and help his new team win.

The opposite was the case. The Warriors left town with a victory, while Westbrook finished with only eight points.

Westbrook really struggled from the field, shooting 4-of-13 on the night. He went 0-for-4 from his shots behind the 3-point line too. Westbrook indeed looked rough, but he'll have the chance to bounce back on Friday night going up against the Suns.
