He later said: "I played really bad. I felt like I don't know how to play basketball. It wasn't me. I've got to get better. A lot."

The Lakers' Kyle Kuzma put Doncic's jersey tear down to the man defending him. The forward said: "Avery Bradley set the tone for us on Luka. Every game he's played, Avery has riled him a little bit and we just fed off that."
