James Worthy has some serious criticisms for the Lakers’ tenacity

Los Angeles Lakers legend James Worthy criticized the team following their overtime loss to the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.

Just when you thought the Los Angeles Lakers could not find a new low this season, they did on Wednesday night. The Lakers faced off against the last-place Houston Rockets, which should have been an easy win for them. Instead, Los Angeles lost to Houston in overtime by the score of 139-130.

After the game, Lakers legend James Worthy appeared on Spectrum and talked about the team’s performance. Worthy said that the team does not have the tenacity “to work their way out of this.”

Jalen Green, Alperen Sengun enjoy career nights as Rockets upset Lakers

Prized rookie Jalen Green built on his recent momentum with a career-high 32 points on Wednesday, leading his Houston Rockets to a thrilling 139-130 (box score) win over LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. Green scored 10 of those points in a decisive and clutch overtime period, and he was very efficient in his home Toyota Center gym by making 13-of-21 shots (61.9%) and 4-of-7 on 3-pointers (57.1%).

Meanwhile, fellow first-round rookie Alperen Sengun added 21 points and 14 rebounds, which were both career-highs. Sengun started for the Rockets in place of veteran Christian Wood, who missed his second straight game with an illness, and played a career-high 40 minutes.

Rookie guard Josh Christopher, who was the fourth of Houston’s four first-round picks in 2021, excelled off the bench with 21 points and 6 rebounds in 23 minutes. As with Green, Christopher was extremely

Lakers vs. 76ers live streams: How to watch TNT game without cable

The Los Angeles Lakers continue their GRAMMYs road trip with another tough matchup against one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference in the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 76ers, despite missing an All-Star in Ben Simmons, have stayed afloat behind the MVP-caliber play of Joel Embiid, who has been otherworldly as of late. The superstar big man is enjoying one of the most dominant stretches of his career, going for over 30 points in five consecutive games while sprinkling in a 40-point and 50-point game during that stretch.

Over the 76ers’ last 14 games, they own a strong 11-3 record behind Embiid’s play. Over that span, Embiid is averaging a jaw-dropping 34.1 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.

Lakers star Anthony Davis out at least 1 month with MCL sprain from Timberwolves loss [Video]

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis will be out for at least a month after suffering an MCL sprain in his left knee, the team said Saturday.

Davis left Friday night’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves in the third quarter after his knee was rolled up on by Jaden McDaniels — which sent the two to the court while Davis grabbed his leg in pain.

He slowly walked off the court and into the tunnel toward the locker room after standing up, but collapsed in pain in the tunnel.

He finished with nine points and one rebound in 20 minutes in the Lakers’ 110-92 loss at the Target Center.

Davis underwent an MRI in Chicago on Saturday — ahead of the Lakers’ game against the Bulls on Sunday — which revealed the MCL sprain.

With his four-week timeline, Davis will likely miss at least 14 games. The Lakers are set
