After the game James stated that he told Russ to take the defeat off mind as they will bounce back in another game.

“I told Russ to go home and watch a comedy,” James said. “Do something that can put a smile on his face. He’s so hard on himself. I told him, ‘Don’t be so hard on yourself. It’s one game.'”

It was similar to a pep talk James gave to Davis when their first game together in L.A. also didn’t go their way.

James, who has often said that experience is the greatest teacher there is, was hopeful that Westbrook would be able to gather some idea from the test.

“I just don’t want him to be so hard on himself. That was the one thing that I hoped to get through to him, don’t be so hard on himself,” James reiterated.

“Go home and you’re going to see three babies that he has that might be asleep, but they’ll put a smile on his face.

“He has a beautiful wife and family. So, at the end of the day, you go home and you’re really like, ‘OK, that was not that bad. It’s really not that bad.'”
