James Worthy on Lakers losing against Bucks: “It was a good game by both teams”

The Los Angeles Lakers started their five-game road trip with a loss against the reigning NBA champions the Milwaukee Bucks (102-109). Giannis Antetokounmpo was unstoppable for the hosts as he scored 47 points and grabbed 9 rebounds.

According to Lakers great James Worthy, it was a good game by both teams even though the purple and gold ended up losing it.

“I thought the Lakers played way better than they have been,” Worthy said on Spectrum SportsNet. “Third quarter wasn’t repetitive like we’ve seen the last time, they come out with a strong third. They kept it close most of the game. Maybe gave up second possessions a little bit too much.

“But there was just too much Giannis and too much Middleton, pretty much. You talk about a championship team that hadn’t been playing great, they get all their players back. [Derek Fisher] talked about how they don’t need to recapture their continuity, they already had it and they showed it tonight. It was a good game by both teams I thought.”
