“It’s just about being well aware that this guy is our focal point up front and will make everyone’s life easier. He is our epicenter.”
Words that make the chorus to those released by LBJ fine gara:
“I think it was just himself in the fourth quarter. Tuesday was difficult for us after the defeat [contro i Pacers] we talked a lot about how we could have done better, especially in the fourth quarter, and in this CEO it’s very important. He’s too important to our team not to have the ball in his hands.”
Los Angeles Lakers who smile again after the defeat suffered at the buzzer against the Indiana Pacers and are preparing as best as possible for the travel tour longest of their season.
In this tour on the East Coast of the United States, the Lakers will have to face 6 matches in 12 days ed incontreranno in ordine Milwaukee Bucks, Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, Toronto Raptors, Philadelphia 76ers e Detroit Pistons.
Anthony Davis sees these trips to the East as a chance to grow even more:
“We are right where we need to be. We let a lot of them slip away. But I think that [questo giro di trasferte] you arrive at the right time for us.”
Of the same opinion too “The Choosen One”:
“Setting off on a first big trip ‘on the road’ with a new group is never easy. But it’s a beautiful thing. You keep growing. You’ve really grown out of it.”
