Young: Walton Called Us Out, ‘Raised His Voice’


Lakers coach Luke Walton challenged his players after the team suffered its eighth straight loss Wednesday night in Brooklyn, dropping Los Angeles to 10-18.

“He raised his voice. He got his point across today,” Lakers guard Nick Young said of Walton, a first-year coach. “Just mentally being soft and calling us out. We got to step up to the plate. I know I’m not soft. My teammates aren’t soft, so we got to show him and prove ourselves.”
