NEW YORK -- Lakers?coach Luke Walton challenged his players after the team suffered its eighth straight loss Wednesday night in?Brooklyn, dropping Los Angeles to 10-18.He raised his voice. He got his point across today, Lakers guard Nick Young said of Walton, a first-year coach. Just mentally being soft and calling us out. We got to step up to the plate. I know Im not soft. My teammates arent soft, so we got to show him and prove ourselves.Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr.?pointed out that Walton, known for his laid-back demeanor, has raised his voice before.Luke is a players coach, but he can get onto us, Nance said.Walton pointed out after his teams?107-97 defeat how the Lakers squandered little moments in the game that I felt we couldve made a little distance and we casually approached as a group.He added: As a group, as a team, weve got a lot to learn about winning and how hard it is. Its frustrating, but its where were at. Its like I told the guys, were going to find a way out. When that is, time will tell.The young Lakers, who are led by the leagues youngest head coach in the 36-year-old Walton, have struggled with injuries following their surprising 9-7 start after posting a franchise-worst 17-65 record last season.He came in, said what he said, and it was just a challenge, said Lakers guard DAngelo Russell. The best thing about it is we got practice [Thursday]. We get to see who really takes what he says and goes with it and who takes what he says and it goes through one ear and out the other.The Lakers will play the 76ers in Philadelphia on Friday. The game will be televised by ESPN.When asked what the Lakers should focus on heading into Fridays game, Russell said: I dont want to talk about the problems anymore. I dont want to come together as a group and talk. I want to get a great practice in and go down there [to Philadelphia] and dont say nothing. I dont even want us to talk to each other. I just want it to be a straight business approach going into this game.Russell added: Its not what these fans are used to. Its not what Coach is used to. Our main focus is turning around the organization, and theres losses here and there, but eight and 10 and 12 in a row -- thats not us. I dont want to talk about it anymore. I dont want guys to speak their minds -- I just want to come in and get to work. Cheap Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys . Pierce was ejected in the third quarter of Indianas 103-86 win Monday.
