Lakers News: Xavier Henry Says Lakers Don’t Give Up, Aren’t Quitters

The Los Angeles Lakers were able to win a second straight game on Tuesday night at the expense of Phil Jackson’s New York Knicks.

One player that stood out amongst the rest was Xavier Henry. The Lakers newcomer is dealing with a torn ligament in the left wrist of his shooting hand, but that didn’t stop him from suiting up and having a solid performance against the Knicks.

Henry spoke to the media after the game against the Knicks and let it be known that this Lakers team has no intention of giving up despite the circumstances according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

Henry scored a team-high 22 points in 23 minutes off the bench for the Lakers. Nick Young also had a solid outing, pouring in 20 points in only 19 minutes. The dynamic duo of athletes were virtually unstoppable on Tuesday with the Knicks literally having no answer for the offensive onslaught.

Young and Henry helped lead the Lakers to a franchise record 51 points scored in the third quarter. New York simply couldn’t contained the two-headed monster off the bench while Kent Bazemore also chipped in with 18 and Jodie Meeks added 14.

After winning two straight games, the Lakers will hit the road for two games against the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday and Kevin Love’s Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday.
