Lakers Update LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Rajon Rondo Statuses For Game vs Cavs
This is coming off a bad loss to the Thunder in which Westbrook was ejected for his second technical. He talked about it after the game. Seems a bit silly.
“How I play the game, I’m more old-school,” Westbrook said. “And when s— like that happens, I don’t let it slide. … In the game of basketball, there’s certain things you just don’t do. Like in baseball, you don’t flip the bat. There’s certain things you don’t do in sports when the game’s already over. And I didn’t like it. Simple as that.”
He also took responsibility.
“I got to take care of the ball,” Westbrook said. “Too many mishaps allowed. It’s my fault. It’s on me. But I’m going to take care of it. I know that. And keep the game simple. Because we need those possessions, especially in games like this.”
Head coach Frank Vogel also talked about the loss.
“A disappointing loss, but a lesson learned,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. “An NBA season is a long season and a lesson for our group that you can’t ever take your foot off the gas against anyone.”
Davis also chimed in.
“This ain’t no adjustment period at all,” said Davis, who finished with 30 points. “Not this game. That’s just straight on us. … This isn’t an adjustment game where I feel like it’s, ‘Oh, we’re still learning each other.’ … Nah. Not this game.”
