The Los Angeles Lakers big man Thomas Bryant scored 16 points and 10 rebounds to help his team win for the third time in their last four games and hand the Washington Wizards its 10th straight loss.

“You have to follow the lead and sometimes wait for your (name) to be called,” said Bryant after making his third start with Anthony Davis sidelined, via ESPN. “It doesn’t change the fact that you have to be ready and stay ready and do what you can to make sure you’re in that mode in case something like this happens. I take pride in the preparation that I have.”
