The Los Angeles Lakers lost their ninth consecutive game on Friday night, 105-93 to the Clippers, dropping to a record of 9-40. Though Julius Randle posted a career-high 23 points to go along with his 14 rebounds, he also turned the ball over six times. As a team, the Lakers 17 turnovers led to 28 Clippers points, which is something Randle addresses after the game.
Rookie D’Angelo Russell reflects on the criticism he’s received this season and how he’s dealt with it. He also recognizes that being “nonchalant” on offense and taking plays off on defense isn’t going to cut it in this league.
Losing 13 of their past 14 games, Byron Scott admits how demoralizing this is for him as a head coach and for the Lakers as a team. It’s all in the postgame videos below.
