“ ’Bron told me to stay ready,” Horton-Tucker said. “To hear that coming from him, he gave me a boost. Who better to hear that from in the first playoff game? The advice they gave me was to stay ready, stay patient and things are going to happen.” Horton-Tucker added 9 points in just 10 minutes off the bench in a 119-96 victory over the Rockets in Game 5. “I wasn’t trying to be too high or low,” he said. “I just wanted to play and do what I do best. That is just playing the game I know how to play and doing it the right way, too.”
Horton-Tucker, who has yet to play in the West finals against the Denver Nuggets, has enjoyed his time in the bubble. He says he is trying to squeeze as much basketball knowledge as possible from the likes of Davis, James and his other veteran Lakers teammates. He has even figured out how to bond with his teammates who often enjoy adult beverages on off-days at the Walt Disney World Resort. “They drink a lot of wine. I don’t drink that. But I can still be around,” Horton-Tucker said. “They can drink their wine and give me an orange juice. I just like sitting around, listening and taking anything in. It can be from basketball to video games. I’m a sponge with everybody. “We never experienced anything like this before. This is never going to happen again. I can say I did this with LeBron and AD.”
