D’Angelo Russell’s buzzer beater may have done the Lakers more harm than good

Los Angeles loses its first-round pick this year and in 2019 if it falls outside of the top-three.

Down just two points in the game’s final seconds, D’Angelo Russell clanked in a three-pointer at the buzzer to push the Lakers to 110-109 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves late Sunday night.

He immediately ran over and hugged his family members.

Russell finished with just 16 points, but got the game’s deciding shot to drop after Metta World Peace bricked a corner three. The shot was made possible after Larry Nance Jr. rejected Ricky Rubio at the rim with 11 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

It was an amazing sequence to watch.

The win, however, hurt the Lakers (25-55), who lose their first-round pick in this year’s and 2019’s NBA Draft if it lands outside of the top-three. Los Angeles, who has now won four straight games, has only a 48.6-percent chance the pick falls into the top-three after the draft lottery. They trail the league-worst Brooklyn Nets (20-60) and the Phoenix Suns (24-57).

So even though Russell and a young Lakers team have a lot to smile about tonight, management might not be too happy if luck isn’t on their side in June.

MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell is calling out Fox News host Bill O’Reilly over legal threats made against one of the women who have accused him of sexual harassment. 

An attorney for O’Reilly told the New York Times that “we are now seriously considering legal action” in response to harassment claims from Wendy Walsh, a former regular guest on “The O’Reilly Factor.” 

But O’Donnell told Joy Reid on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Sunday that if they sue Walsh, they should sue him as well:

“I believe that Bill O’Reilly sexually harassed Wendy Walsh. I believe Bill O’Reilly is a sexual harasser. Now, according to O’Reilly’s thug lawyer, I’m sue-able right now. Go ahead. Go ahead. Come and sue me, Bill O’Reilly, I dare you.” 

He predicted that O’Reilly won’t sue because “he’s actually guilty of these things” and also because he wouldn’t want to be under oath answering questions about the case. 

O’Donnell also blasted Fox News as a “cesspool of sexual harassment and abuse of women.”
