The Los Angeles Lakers broke the spell and started winning games after a few terrible losses. Well, things went downhill again and the team suffered another big blow. They lost the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder and big man Anthony Davis is definitely unhappy with the embarrassing loss. His team should have won this one. It was an easy challenge.
Yes, the Lakers were without LeBron James, but they beat the San Antonio Spurs without the help from the four-time NBA champion. Lakers players had a chance to continue their winning streak but Thunder players had other plans for the purple and gold.
Anthony Davis says LA could have avoided the embarrassing loss
Thunder players were able to pull out an excellent comeback and finished the night with a 123-115 win. According to Davis, his team should have won this one. The big man didn’t think twice before voicing his concerns. His team had a chance to win this one.
“It’s a game that we’re definitely supposed to win. We’re not supposed to lose at all. But we’ll learn from it and move forward.”
It’s interesting to note that AD did his best and finished the night with 30 points and eight rebounds despite his knee injury. He suffered a stingy injury in the game against the Spurs, but finished the game. The Lakers listed him as questionable for the game against the Thunder. He did suit up and tried his best to take his team to a win.
Russell Westbrook had great performance, too. He hit a triple-double, finishing the night with 20 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists, 10 turnovers, and an ejection. The newly-signed Lakers veteran had his third game in Oklahoma City since being shipped away in 2019. With 1.5 seconds remaining of the game, Westbrook couldn’t hide his displeasure after Darius Bazley got a steal and a dunk to seal the 123-115 win. Broddie was assessed a technical and had to leave the game.
Davis and other Lakers players are confident about their skills. They have enough talent, experience, and skills to win more games. Let’s see what happens in the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
