“I’m not a very patient person… But without our head coach, just getting guys back, still missing a few, I just try to stay even-keeled… No one is going to feel sorry for us,” via Harrison Faigen of SB Nation.
Meanwhile, on the other side, the Brooklyn Nets were led by James Harden, who had 36 points, ten rebounds, and ten assists; Patty Mills also clipped in 34 points.
James Harden, after the game, the fourth quarter troubles late for on himself.

Speaking of LeBron James, Wack 100 was on the Clubhouse App in the Sleepless room earlier today and was asked by Kash from Southwest Philly to assess LeBron James.
“Listen, nothing against LeBron [James]. I just think he’s overrated. If he would have stayed in Cleveland and he did his thing. He would have gotten more respect. Everywhere he went we Miami, we can’t give him that because that was already built,” said Wack.
“I like AD and I think the talent they [the Lakers] got, they have to learn how to play with each other their chemistry gotta be in synch.”
The Los Angeles Lakers play the Houston Rockets next on the road on Tuesday.
