Luke Walton is frustrated.

His Lakers were in Sacramento and on their way to a seventh straight loss. He was frustrated with the officiating all game, and when he thought DeMarcus Cousins pulled Julius Randle to the ground without a call he lost it. Jordan Clarkson and Brandon Ingram held him back.

The Lakers lost their cool and picked up five technicals in the game, including one for Brian Shaw, who had taken over as coach after Walton was ejected. Cousins also got one, because what else did you expect.

This was the first game of a six-game road trip for the Lakers, who could see a lot more frustration before it is over.
