Anthony Davis sounds off after Lakers late game collapse

Head coach Darvin Ham was quick to take the blame for the Lakers bad loss, and that’s something a good coach does even when it’s not his fault completely.

” I wish we would have been a lot more aggressive, continue playing with pace and also continue to be organized and move the ball. And that falls on me. That falls on me. I’ll take responsibility for that…I have to do a better job of keeping us organized during those stretches offensively.” – Darvin Ham

But Lakers star PF Anthony Davis was quick to say that the blame is on the players more than anything. He told reporters that their team is too experienced to be losing games like that in the fourth quarter.

“It’s not just on him. It’s on us too,” … “I mean, we got enough years in the league for the guys that were on the floor late game to execute. Obviously, he’s a coach, you take the blame. But it’s on us players to go out there and execute.” – Anthony Davis

The Lakers are 7-12 so far this season and are fifth in the Pacific Conference. Their next game is tomorrow vs the Trial Blazers at 10:30pm.
