Veteran guard Avery Bradley had some strong words for the Lakers following Tuesday’s road loss to the Knicks.
“We can’t just turn it off and on, Bradley said, via Lakers Nation. “We’re not good enough for that yet.”
The Lakers (9-10) have played more games at home than any other NBA team, yet they sit below .500 entering Wednesday’s game at the Pacers.
Granted, they’ve been missing LeBron James for a large chunk of the early season. Between a sore ankle, abdominal strain and one-game suspension, he has appeared in just eight games.
Still, they also have Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, and expectations are sky high.
Yet they are 1-3 on their current trip out East, and never led (despite several opportunities) in the loss to the Knicks.
As Bradley mentioned, the Lakers “ran out of gas” in the fourth quarter — which actually has been a season-long theme.
“We have be better,” he said.
