When Game 1 of the playoff series between the Lakers and the Nuggets ended, many fans believed that D’Angelo Russell was partly to blame for his team’s loss. However, he walked into Game 2 with redemption on his mind.

The Lakers star was unbelievable, shooting 6 of 7 from beyond the arc to end the first half. The Lakers looked better compared to their first game, securing a twenty-point lead in the first half. However, the officiating in the game wasn’t the most accurate. Even after a review, D’Lo received a hit in the face during a drive attempt, but there was no foul call.

Fans are sharing their thoughts on the play video on social media. D’Angelo Russell jumps after a drive to score a basket in the video. Michael Porter Jr., who was guarding him, raised his hand. However, when MPJ’s hand dropped, it hit D’Lo straight in the face.

No foul was called on the play, and the Lakers requested a review. The officials made a review only to keep their decision unchanged. They ruled the foul on D’Angelo Russell marginal, not punishing the Nuggets. The game continued, but the Lakers eventually lost it, giving the Nuggets a stronghold on the series.

Another comment said, “We still remember AD got hit in the face and then missed the game cause of it. Same shit. No foul,” reminding everyone of a similar incident with Anthony Davis in the past.
