After a 0-5 run, the Los Angeles Lakers have finally won their first game of the season, beating the Denver Nuggets over the weekend. The win was a cause for celebration and the whole NBA Twitter chimed in on the congratulations. Lakers Nation held their breath, but LeBron James and the rest of the Purple and Gold team have finally broke their losing streak.

The win is the first one for coach Darvin Ham. Russell Westbrook stepped up and had 18 points that game, helping the Lakers to extend their lead in the final match minutes. In the weeks prior, Westbrook has faced criticism from fans and sports analysts for his poor start of the 2022-23 NBA season. They beat the Nuggets 121-110 and celebrated the first win of the season like the championships.

Currently, the Nuggets are the No. 1 team in the West, thus, this particular win feels that much better. NBA Twitter shared their sentiments on the Lakers’ win, ready to get their jokes off. Take a look below at what some fans had to say.
