The Lakers’ loss to the Washington Wizards puts them at 22-10 on the season and continues a 3 game losing streak.
The Lakers are now 9-7 at home this season, and Anthony Davis is projected to be out until after the All-Star break.
What’s wrong with the Lakers?
Well, these are the dog days of the NBA season, and the Lakers can’t put two consistent halves together to win games.
The Lakers are not clicking on both ends of the floor the past 3 games. Obviously, not having Anthony Davis playing is a big missing piece for this team. LeBron James is trying his best to carry this team to wins, but he also understands that at his age, he needs to pace himself in the regular season in hopes for another championship run.
There are 5 games left before the All-Star break, and all of them are tough games. The Lakers begin with the Utah Jazz, who have the best record in the NBA. The Lakers are 13-3 on the road this season which is incredible.
The Jazz are playing well, and the Lakers would need a great performance in order to win on the road.
