After the game, head coach Luke Walton questioned the individual desire of his team, or whether they are comfortable waiting 2-3 years as natural development begins. Nick Young questioned whether the Lakers were just going to be another losing team this year, saying they played ‘weak basketball’ in the second half.

Rookie Brandon Ingram and guard Jordan Clarkson both explain their levels of anger and frustration after such a disappointing loss. Julius Randle explains players natural tendencies to try to individually uplift teams when it needs to be more of a group effort.
