Lyou Lakers They lost their third game in a row when they fell to the Timberwolves for a blunt 124-104. is the twelfth loss for the angels in the last 15 games. If it weren’t for the Spurs and the Blazers are very irregular, even qualifying for the play-in could be in jeopardy. But above the bad results are the sensations. And they are lousy.
The team that at the beginning of the course was one of the clearest contenders for the ring plays with enormous laziness and has become a caricature. As their visit to Minnepolis demonstrated, they are the laughingstock of the NBA. Russell Westbrook hit a 3-pointer from the corner that missed the rim. The ball came gently into the hands of Karl-Anthony Townswho looked several times at the top of the pavilion, as if following the trajectory of the shot or as if it were raining balls.
A few minutes before Patrick Beverleywho has a long history of sprinting with Westbotook, had forced a turnover from the Lakers point guard and started holding his nose as if his opponent’s game sucked and seemed to say the word “garbage” on several occasions.
Asked about the taunts from his rivals, Westbrook told a news conference “don’t pay attention. Maybe other guys will. Your trash-taking doesn’t bother me at all. None of them have achieved anything in this League that makes me say, ‘Oh, they’re talking nonsense, I’m going to answer them.’ No. It’s fine. Are good. They won the game. Happy for them. Go to the next one.”
Beverley entered the rag on social networks about the phrase that none of them had done anything in this League. “Playoffs every year. Two Western Conference finals with two different teams. Individual or team stats? I thought it was a team sport.”.
Westbrook finished the game with 15 points and 5/12 shooting from the field, but leaving some actions with a pitiful attitude, without rebounding, with no defense, with a lousy balance… And an ‘airball’ that sparked jeers of his rivals. “It’s part of the game,” LeBron James replied. when they asked him.
