Russell Westbrook said the Lakers will need time to find their chemistry, as they haven’t played much together this season.

Following the 108-130 loss to the Boston Celtics, Westbrook noted it’s still early for the Lakers to be at their very best, despite the high expectations.

After 17 games, the Lakers are at 8-9 and have now lost three straight games. They now are in the middle of a five-game road trip in the East and they will play the Detroit Pistons on Sunday.

For his part, Russell Westbrook is still trying to fit to the Lakers tactics and build chemsitry with his teammates and especially (with) LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
