Lakers Players Respond to Heated Scuffle With Suns

The Lakers and Suns got into it on Tuesday. Here’s what went down:

And here’s what the players had to say after the game:

PATRICK BEVERLEY

Patrick Beverley on his involvement in the LAL-PHX incident: “Got a person on the ground, two people looking over mean-mugging and puffing their chest out and referees don’t get into it to kind of separate it, control the game so I’m going to stand up for my teammate”

ANTHONY DAVIS

“We got each other’s back. Pat is known for that: having his teammates’ backs. … We don’t let anybody stand over our teammate. … That’s disrespectful.”

RUSSELL WESTBROOK

“I love it, personally. Protecting and understanding we have each other’s back is the most important thing as a team.”

DARVIN HAM

“It’s an emotional sport. … At the end of the day, I’m not mad at him. He’s protecting his teammate. … Teams have to know they can’t just push us around.”

DEVIN BOOKER

“Pat need to stop pushing people in the back man. Push ’em in the chest.”
