Pascal Siakam blamed his poor play for the Toronto Raptors' 92-87 loss in game 7 against the Boston Celtics.
Siakam finished game 7 with 13 points and 11 rebounds.
"Obviously, I have to be better. It was definitely a learning moment for me just learning from this experience and just learning that you've gotta be ready and I wasn't able to help my teammates. I take a lot of the blame, man," said Siakam after the loss.
Siakam, who averaged 23.6 points in the regular season, averaged 14.9 points against the Celtics. He also shot 4-of-32 from three, which is the worst 3-point percentage in playoff series with a minimum of 30 attempts.
Kyle Lowry said that Siakam will learn from his struggles in the bubble.
"I don't think he did anything wrong, I think this is a learning experience. I think this is only going to make him a better basketball player, a better man, a better everything. I would not be surprised to see him come back even more hungry and destroying people," said Lowry.
Nick Nurse added that he wasn't too concerned by Siakam's struggles considering the circumstance.
"I think that there's been nothing but progress like this for him. This is a weird and unique scenario. I can't stress enough how well he was playing leading into this pandemic break. ... For whatever reason, all of us have been affected differently by this. I'm not going to sit here and try to read too much into it."
