The bad from the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss:
Anthony Davis started strong in the game but…got hurt…again!
When Anthony Davis gets his rhythm and timing back, he will be back in the conversation for being one of the top five players in basketball. In his first nine-minute stint, he was wearing the Sixers out scoring 10 points on 5-8 shooting. Then this happens…
While you wonder how AD dunking over Joel Embiid could land in the bad section of a Los Angeles Lakers post-game, he ended up injuring his right wrist on the play and left for the locker room for a few minutes. After getting the wrist wrapped up he eventually got back into the game in the second quarter.
This writer has his favorites on this team and Malik is definitely one of them but this dude laid an egg in this one on both ends.
Malik finished with 11 points on 3-13 shooting. The only thing worse than his 3 point shooting performance was his defense. Two of those baskets was when the game was way out of hand.
He’s got to figure out how to get his rhythm in all situations because Frank Vogel’s rotation patterns is about as unstable as the weather patterns on the East Coast these days!
LeBron James didn’t play!
Duh! In other news, the sky is blue and water is wet!
Russell Westbrook’s turnovers are starting to rise again!
Russ had five turnovers in the last game and followed it up with six in this one. These are the turnovers that are killing the Lakers…
Instead of cutting the lead to ten points, this play starts a Sixers run it get the lead back up towards 20. This is why Lakers fans are so frustrated.
