After seeing his former team eliminated from playoff contention, Nets guard D'Angelo Russell was asked if he has a little something extra playing in Staples Center. "Yeah, this is where I started," Russell said. "This is definitely where I started. It's definitely a place that gave me an opportunity. Not many guys started somewhere and then that was forgotten throughout their career. You know, the Chauncey Billups, the Nashes, of that group, so I'm trying to consider myself one of those guys."
