Avery Bradley is not happy with the way the Lakers have played in the first 19 games of the season in the NBA.

Bradley said the Lakers need to be more consistent and start playing with more energy on both ends. The veteran guard also noted the 17-time NBA champions should work on their defensive effort and stop conceding too many points.

The Lakers have won just nine of their 19 games this season and are in the middle of the standings in the West (9-10). On Tuesday, they lost to the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden (100-106), with Avery Bradley having 15 points (5/9 shooting) and nine rebounds.
