The Lakers aren’t playing any offense or defense.
They were recently on a 5-game winning streak before the Milwaukee Bucks came into Staples Center last Tuesday and stunned them. Then the Miami Heat embarrassed the Lakers on Christmas Day.
The Lakers went into San Antonio to face the best team in the NBA right now. The Lakers lost 7 of their last 11 meetings in San Antonio before Tuesday nights game.
Spurs took a big lead into the 2nd quarter but then the Lakers fought back to take the lead at halftime. That was the only positive part of the night. Kobe received another technical. It was his fourth technical during the losing streak.
Kobe Bryant was 8-for-27 with only 21 points and Pau Gasol had 9 points with 9 rebounds.
During their 3-game losing steak, their average deficit is 16.6 points and averaging 80 points per game.
The last time the Lakers had 10 losses before the new year was in 2007.
I don’t know what to expect tomorrow night against the Hornets.
Box Score: Lakers 82 Spurs 97
