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.”
