Mike D’Antoni Says Team Settled ‘Into Mediocrity’ After Pelicans Loss

After an impressive win over Dwight Howard’s Houston Rockets on Thursday, the Los Angeles Lakers were unable to get the best of a Anthony Davis-led New Orleans Pelicans on the road one day later.

Following the loss to the New Orleans, head coach Mike D’Antoni talked to the media and basically said the team settles for mediocrity at times this season via Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

Although the Lakers ultimately lost by 11 to the Pelicans, this game was much closer than the score suggests. There’s no question this was a winnable game even with an incredible performance by Davis’ performance.

Pau Gasol continued to struggle on Friday with another subpar performance in consecutive nights. Gasol finished with nine points on three-for-12 shooting while failing to contain Davis in the paint.

Davis turned a lot of heads on Friday night against the Lakers finishing with a career-high 32 points. The former number one overall pick also added 12 rebounds and six points to an impressive stat line.

With the Lakers having no answer for Davis, D’Antoni’s squad will lick their wounds and head back to Los Angeles to prepare for Kevin Love’s Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night at Staples Center.
