Lakers Struggle

With the Lakers winless 0-5 start, it seems that they have a slim chance of making the
playoffs. The Lakers have a handful of injuries and a handful of under achievers.
Julius Randle and Steve Nash are out for the season, while Carlos Boozer and
Jeremy Lin are struggling. Despite Kobe’s hot start to the season, the rest of
the Lakers are not stepping up. Both recent acquisitions, Lin and Boozer, failed
to reach double digits in the recent game against Golden State. The Lakers need
to step it up if they want to have a chance at the playoffs. They also need to
give up less points and pick it up defensively. In the last 2 games, they
allowed 112 points and 127 points to the Suns and Warriors respectively. The
Lakers need Lin and Boozer to produce produce more points, step it up defensively as a team, and
overcome injuries if they want to make the playoffs.
