Lakers’ Anthony Davis Gets Honest Amid ‘Death Seed’ Battle

The Los Angeles Lakers suffered a loss in the game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Losing a game was the last thing they needed at the end of the regular season. Lakers big man Anthony Davis received a hit in the eye early in the game and had to leave the game. He also missed the loss to the Golden State Warriors due to an illness. The Lakers lost two straight games and Davis got really honest about the death seed.

Lakers players were able to elevate in Western Conference standings and got to No.8. Now they sit in the tenth seed in the West. They have to win two road games to get back to No.8. According to Bill Plaschke from LA Times, No.10 is the “death seed.” He believes that the Lakers will put an end to their playoff hopes if they end up at No.10.

The Lakers listed Davis as probably for Friday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies. They managed to celebrate a 123-120 win over Memphis.

Davis and Lakers teammates are not worried about the “death seed”

Davis is not too worried about the current situation and he believes that his team is in “a great place.”

“I think we’re in a great place,” Davis said on Friday, via a video posted by McMenamin. “I mean, the two games that we lost, I played a quarter. And then LeBron didn’t play one. So there’s nothing we can really do about that now. Our job is to focus on these next two, the game tonight and then on Sunday against New Orleans. And then just kind of see what happens, where we stand after that and then go win basketball games.

“I mean, at the end of the day, no matter where you are in the standings, you still have to win. For us, it’s about taking it one game at a time. Whether that’s 10th place, ninth place, eighth, no matter where you are. You can be the first seed, you still have to win basketball games.

“So that’s our mindset. No matter where we are, we just gotta win.”
