The Lakers competed against the Phoenix Suns in their second match of the season. Many fans wondered whether the Lakers would be able to pull off the victory, but that did not happen at all. The Lakers lost the game to the Phoenix Suns by a score of 115-110.
During the game, an altercation took place during the first half of last night’s game, on the Lakers’ sideline. As seen in clips, Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard could be seen getting in each other’s faces. After that, Davis grabbed Howard’s arm. They eventually had to be broken up by their respective teams.
Magic Johnson reacted to the confrontation as he made it clear that he couldn’t believe Anthony Davis locked horns with Dwight Howard. It seems Dwight Howard finally shared his thoughts on the confrontation as well.
While speaking after the game, Dwight Howard explained that the whole situation was squashed very quickly and moving forward, they are on good terms and there is no bad blood between the two.
“Oh, yeah. We squashed it right then and there. We just had a disagreement about something that was on the floor. We’re both very passionate about winning. We didn’t wanna lose this game. We’re grown men. Things happen. But we already talked. Squashed it. There’s no issue between me and him. That’s my brother. That’s what I told him. … We’re good. We squashed it. There’s no need to try to make it bigger than something else.”
The Los Angeles Lakers will need to bring their A-game if they hope to defeat the Phoenix Suns in their upcoming game. We will have to wait and see what will become of the Lakers this season.
