Lakers: Dennis Schroder: Devin Booker disrespected me and I talked back

Los Angeles Lakers guard Dennis Schroder claimed that Phoenix Suns' Devin Booker disrespected him and that he talked back to him. In the final minute of Game 3, Booker received a flagrant-2 foul for pushing Schroder and he was ejected from the game.

"My mom raised me right," said Schroder, who scored 20 points, when asked if he might have gotten under Booker's skin, prompting the foul. "When somebody talks to me first, I'm gonna talk back. It don't matter who it is.

If somebody talks to me disrespectfully, I'm going to do the same thing, so at the end of the day, we're going to battle then. "Nobody's going to disrespect me. The end of the day, I just talked back and somebody took it too sensitive and fouled me."

Suns' Jae Crowder also got ejected in the final minute of Game 3. Lakers' LeBron James toyed with Crowder in the fourth quarter, deliberately yo-yoing the ball through his legs on an isolation possession. The Lakers take a 2-1 lead over the Suns "For me and for our ballclub, we always try to make plays where we can get each other excited, we can get our fans involved, get our fans excited about it.

Because it just brings so much excitement to the game," James said. "Plays can be momentum swings that can work in our favor. So, that was one of those instances where we had an opportunity to make a momentum play and we were able to deliver."

Elsewhere, the Miami Heat suffered a 113-84 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks and they now trail 3-0. "[I'm most surprised by] just how fast it got out of hand," Heat wingman Jimmy Butler said. "We've got to pick who we want to be -- be physical, make things much tougher.

Then you've got to live with the result." The Heat stood no chance in each of the past two games against the Bucks. "The rhythm is off," Heat point guard Goran Dragic said. "It's way off. We lose our confidence.

We still have one game left." Bucks guard Jrue Holiday had a good performance as he posted 19 points and 12 assists. "Jrue's the most underrated player in the NBA by far," Milwaukee big man P.J. Tucker said.

"People don't understand how good he is. I didn't understand how good he is until I played with him. He gets it, and he is the quietest dog to ever play with in your life."
