The Los Angeles Lakers’ rebuilding project reached a new low Sunday afternoon with the most lopsided loss in franchise history, a 122-73 rout at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks. “We didn’t show up to play, honestly, which is frustrating,” first-year Lakers coach Luke Walton said after the 49-point drubbing. “Honestly, it’s embarrassing for us as a team and for us as an organization, for our Laker fans that are so good to us.

“Again, at this point it is not about every night going out and winning. It is playing a certain style that allows you a chance to win while we are trying to build this thing. It’s about getting better and building on games like our last game, and not being satisfied with it. … “The effort just wasn’t there tonight, which I don’t understand. I love our group of guys and I know we are going to bring it next game, but that’s not who we are. It was frustrating tonight.”

In the wake of Kevin Durant’s deleted tweets that slammed his former team and coach, Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti responded on Friday by taking the high road and praising Durant’s time with the franchise.

“I, and no one from the Thunder, has anything negative to say about Kevin Durant,” Presti said. “I think we’ve been hopefully very open about the fact that we have tremendous appreciation and respect for what he and his teammates and coaches and everybody over his tenure here accomplished, and I really don’t think there’s anything more to say other than that.”
