After the embarrassing home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers against the Minnesota Timberwolves Anthony Davis has gone hard with himself and his teammates to task. Concrete solutions to the problems, however, has neither did he ready.
We have to decide who we want to be. Do we want to be a championship team? Currently, we are certainly not. Even with Davis, who at 83: led the Lakers with 22 points 107, had some pent-up after swatter against a rogue Lottery team on home soil in anger and perplexity.
Shameful is the result and its conclusion, AD put on and made the disastrous third quarter of the main reason for the outcome of the game. For this analysis, it did not need a basketball professional: With 28 points, the Lakers pulled the short straw in this section (12:40), it was more of the shot-clock era in 1954 for the glorious franchise since the beginning only once been. Only a threesome sank L.A. at 13 experiments in Minnesota, there were 7. After that, the game was decided what was also evident from the body language.
Not for the first time this season, the Lakers presented quite weak after half-time, with a net rating of 17.7 is said quarter by far the worst among Californians. Even Wayne Ellington noted that no urgency and as the resumption ve completely overslept.
Davis after debacle, Why I can not say
Reasons why this scenario is always repeated, however, Davis had not: We were bad No Defense, we could not score Why I can not say it.?. Only one thing is clear: We win any championship, we have to be better. The joined head coach Frank Vogel: We are not a great team if we do not also as a play.
That was much against the Timberwolves in disorder, can be attributed at least in part also with the existing staff explain. Russell Westbrook, Avery Bradley, Kent Blakemore and Wayne Ellington started four players who were not yet in the past season on the roster. Automations are so hard to develop. This quintet played only 6 assists combined, so few were not in a starting five in the past four seasons.
Westbrook finished the game with a devastating plus / minus value of -32, his counterpart De Angelo Russell closed the game by as much as 68 points better (+36). Carmelo Anthony made by far his worst game in the Lakers jersey (3 points, 1/12 FG). The more the return of LeBron James is longed for from his stomach strain, with Taken Horton-Tucker (broken thumb) is another important player briefly before returning to the team. The new additions Kendrick Nun and Trevor Aria are still waiting for their debut.
Now, it is true, according to Vogel, to give the right answer in the upcoming home games against the Spurs and Bulls, because: There is no better motivator than a bad defeat Our boys are angry, our coaching staff is angry. Still in the standing but little has happened, with a record of 7-6 separate the Lakers only two games of the second-placed Suns in the Western Conference.
