On Sunday night, following a 107-96 road win over the Toronto Raptors, starting center Marcin Gortat suggested the team needs to bind its unfettered confidence. “Just because we won this game today here, it doesn’t mean that everything is fine and we back on the right track. There’s a lot of things we’ve got to work on,” Gortat said. “First of all, we’ve got to become a more humble team and we just got to work harder.”
“He’s not wrong in this instance,” Kelly Oubre Jr. “We’ve got to be humble. We’ve got to stop going to the media and doing things and saying things. We kind of got to let our game do the talking.” Said Beal, who led the Wizards with 38 points on Sunday: “For sure. We definitely need to feed off this energy but at the same time we got to realize we’re not the team we want to be or that we need to be. So, we’ve got a long ways to go. It definitely starts with humility, you know, realizing what’s at stake and what’s ahead of us and taking it game by game.”
“Our guys were more locked in tonight,” Walton said after the Lakers (2-2) earned their biggest win of the young season. “It shouldn’t be anything to do with [what Marcin Gortat and Wall said about Ball]. [But] I did [tell them] it is nothing personal but we defend each other. If people want to talk about our players, we should be offended and we should go into that game and telling ourselves that is not all right and we are not going to stand for that and we are not just going to [lay down] and let that happen.”

“Nah, no mercy,” Wall responded when asked if he would show leniency to the 19-year-old rookie point guard in spite of his braggadocious father. “Certain matchups you really get up for. Like when you play [Golden State Warriors guard] Steph [Curry], you definitely want to have a good game,” Wall said. “I’m playing against [Ball]. [Gortat] said what he said about me. I didn’t say anything. His dad has been talking … that makes me want to go out there and lead my team and play the best I can play.”
Brandon Ingram says Lonzo Ball and the Lakers did not take kindly to Marcin Gortat’s tweet about how John Wall “will torture” Ball when the Wizards visit the Lakers on Wednesday night. “Yeah of course we did,” Ingram said when asked if he saw Gortat’s tweet on Monday. “Everyone has social media, definitely saw it. The competitor in Lonzo, of course he didn’t take it so well and with his teammates behind him, we didn’t take it so well.”
