After the game, we found out that Russell lost his grandmother earlier in the day.
Russell said his grandma was everything to him, a very strong woman who held the family together. Too young to go. Happened suddenly.

After being mobbed by his Lakers teammates, Russell hugged family members in the crowd in what can only be described as an overwhelmingly emotional scene.
