The return following the All-Star break was a complete disaster for the Los Angeles Lakers as they played on Thursday night shorthanded with players missing out on the contest like LeBron James, Christian Wood, Cam Reddish, Gabe Vincent, and Jarred Vanderbilt.

During the game, Austin Reaves got injured and sat out for several minutes while apparently, Anthony Davis lost his voice making the star to not being able to communicate with his teammates regarding their defensive game. This was revealed by coach Darvin Ham in the post-game presser.

But former Lakers player Lou Williams believes there are some things that head coaches shouldn't say, as Ham made it sound like an excuse for the loss. "Sometimes coaches, there's some things you just don't say... I think this was better left unsaid."

Davis was still able to have a solid night despite playing with an impacted voice, as he finished with 27 points, 15 boards, and three blocks. But with veteran superstar LeBron James sidelined for the matchup, Davis’ efforts weren’t enough to get the Lakers a win.

While Lakers fans want Coach Ham gone, the front office has given him full support

Ham has earned his fair share of skeptics since becoming L.A.’s head coach, and earlier this season, there were even some questions about his job security. But for now, his spot with the Lakers seems safe, even if he doesn’t do himself any favors in the media at times.
