Frustration boiled between Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard on the Los Angeles Lakers bench | NBA.com Australia

For the Los Angeles Lakers, a rocky start continues.

After winning the pre-season and dropping the first regular season match to the Golden State Warriors, the Lakers noticed a double-digit drop to the Phoenix Suns in the first half.

Frustration increased in the second quarter, the situation boiled during the time-out, playing at 3:13 in the first half and the Lakers ending at 49-41.

When ESPN broadcasts returned from the commercial, the replay showed that Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard needed to be separated on the bench by teammates and staff.

Davis still seemed to be talking to his teammates, but the pair eventually split.

Sands will finish the quarter with an 8-3 run to take a 57-44 lead for a half-time break.

Both big names struggled with a tough opening of two-quarters. Davis scored only 4 points with a 1 to 5 shot, but Howard was scoreless and picked up two fouls in 9 minutes.

Substitution should be a post-match topic, so I’ll leave it here for updates as the night goes on.
