Westbrook has absolutely helped the Lakers grab some wins this season, they won on Saturday in spite of him. Frank Vogel even made the executive decision to bench him for the entirety of the overtime period, a span that the Lakers won 11-4.

This led to some difficult questions geared towards James and Davis, who famously vouched for Westbrook as a trade target during the offseason. James revealed what he told Westbrook after the game. “I just told him to text me later. I told him to keep going and stop second-guessing himself during the game,” James said. “There was a couple times where he had good looks and second-guessed himself, couple times where he had some drives and second-guessed himself.

“He’s an instinctive player and with what he’s done in this league, he should never second-guess himself. He’s put the work in, so I just told him to just hit me later and I don’t need to harp on what we need to say to him. He’s a big-time player and I have the utmost confidence in his ability. Not only for this team, but for himself individually.”

Davis echoed a similar sentiment, going into greater detail on what Westbrook can do to get out his slump. “Just stay in his ear. He could be frustrated, the fans obviously want to see him play better, but one thing you can’t do is put too much pressure on yourself. You got to go out there and play freely.

“There were some shots tonight that he usually takes in rhythm and he kind of passed up or hesitated,” Davis said of Westbrook. “And me and LB were just trying to tell him, we don’t care if you miss every one, just play. Shoot your rhythm shots, don’t hesitate. Obviously it’s easier said than done just because when you’re in it, obviously you don’t want to be missing shots. He doesn’t try to miss and a lot of shots he takes are shots that he can make. But he just got to stay out of his own head.

“He just got to continue to play and do the little things. When I was going through the whole little thing where I wasn’t playing well, I tried to always do the little things for our team, the intangibles. And that kind of gets you going, gets you in a rhythm. That’s what he has to do. He’s got two days to kind of just get away and try to lock back in against Milwaukee. But as leaders of the team, me and Bron, we try to just continue to talk to him and make sure that he’s not in his own head putting a lot of pressure on himself.”

Los Angeles Lakers All-Star power forward LeBron James narrowly missed out on being named the Western Conference Player of the Month for January, the NBA’s PR department has revealed.

Sacramento Kings stars De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis, Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alxander, Los Angeles Clippers wing Kawhi Leonard, Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard, Utah Jazz forward Lauri Markkanen, and Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Anthony Edwards were the other finalists for the honor in January.

There’s no shame in finishing as an also-ran for last month. The winner, two-time Denver Nuggets MVP center Nikola Jokic averaged a triple-double (24 points, 11.6 rebounds, 11.3 assists) while leading his club to a 12-4 record for the month, which is pretty tough to top.

This month, James was twice named the Western Conference Player of the Week, which of course means he must have been a major contender for the honor.

LeBron James and Anthony Davis put on a show for the LA Lakers in their 112-111 win over the Indiana Pacers on Thursday. The Lakers trailed most of the game until midway through the fourth period. Davis, in particular, came up big for the team, impacting the game on both ends of the court.

He bagged 31 points, 14 rebounds, and two blocks. AD also came away with the clutch game-winning board to seal the Lakers’ one-point win. He also made a clutch block on Tyrese Haliburton with 16 seconds left and the Lakers up one.

James had 26 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists himself but reserved high praise for AD, highlighting the importance of his presence, saying (via Lakers Daily):

“He’s a Defensive Player of the Year player every night. Our confidence is extremely high when we know we have AD on the back line.”

The Lakers thoroughly missed Anthony Davis after he was sidelined for 20 games over five-and-a-half weeks due to a foot injury. LA found their identity offensively in his absence, but their defense was leaky.

The Warriors seek defensive specialist to give another ring to Stephen Curry

The San Francisco quintet wants to retain the NBA title but their recent performances have kept them from that possibility. The coach has already detected what the fault is and plans to solve it with this signing

Everyone still remembers that electrifying final between the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics where Stephen Curry and his teammates shouted champion. However, this season is being quite difficult for the team led by Steve Kerr, since they are in 7th position in the Western Conference.

The Warriors ‘ last game was a total disaster as they lost again this time to the Minnesota Timberwolves. As usual, Stephen Curry was the most outstanding player of the Californian quintet, scoring 10 rebounds, 3 assists and 29 points out of the 114 that the team scored. However, the problem continues to lie in the defensive part, and the coach already has the transfer he needs on his agenda.

Matisse Thybulle is the defensive player that the Warriors and Stephen Curry claim

The best guard of the Philadelphia 76ers, we refer to Matisse Thybulle, is the player that the San Francisco quintet is claiming. And it is that the 25-year-old player is attracting the attention of several teams in the NBA, including the Warriors, due to his competitive level and his defensive qualities, which makes his coach, Doc Rivers, very happy.

Seeing how the Arizona player is playing this season, Steven Kerr hasn’t thought twice about asking for the signing of this basketball player who is beginning to rank among the best defensive players in the league. The American coach is convinced that Thybulle is the missing piece in his scheme to return to the top.

Other teams want Matisse Thybulle not to be Stephen Curry’s Warriors teammate

Due to his defensive characteristics and his powerful dribble and return speed, Matisse Thybulle is the player that several teams in the NBA want. In this sense, the Sacramento Kings are the closest to the operation, and the team that fights side by side with the Golden State Warriors for the signing of the Australian.

The Los Angeles Lakers are no strangers to this operation and several of their scouts have tried to communicate with the Philadelphia 76ers guard. There is no doubt that the player has a great poster in the NBA and as time goes by, his suitors grow. For this reason, the Warriors coach calls for speed in the matter.

LeBron James still isn’t over the injustice that was committed Saturday night at TD Garden.

ARTICLE CONTINUE AFTER THE ADVERTISEMENT..... SCROLL DOWN

It’s been several days since officials missed a Jayson Tatum foul on James at the end of regulation that would have given the Lakers star a chance to win Los Angeles’ game against the Boston Celtics with a pair of free throws.

But there was James after the Lakers’ overtime win over the New York Knicks, continuing to lament that the referees cost his team a victory on Saturday.

“The difference between here and Boston is obviously self-explanatory,” James told reporters in his postgame press conference. “… The game was decided by the players. In Boston, the game was decided by the refs.”

There’s no denying that James and the Lakers got hosed on that play; head referee Eric Lewis admitted that his crew missed the call and that Tatum indeed contacted James’ arm on James’ last-second layup attempt.

The Lakers shouldn’t have been in that situation in the first place, however; they led by double digits late in the third quarter and had a three-point lead with possession and less than 10 seconds remaining in regulation before Patrick Beverley fouled Jaylen Brown on a layup attempt to give the Celtics guard a game-tying three-point play.

Los Angeles also had five minutes of overtime to take matters into their own hands but were outscored by four points in the frame.

So, James can complain all he wants — as he did on the court Saturday night, after the game on social media, again on social media Sunday night, and one more time Tuesday — but it won’t change the fact that his Lakers lost a game they could have won at multiple points Saturday.
