In a game that the Los Angeles Lakers probably lost as soon as the schedule came out, and almost certainly lost the moment they upset the Washington Wizards in late October, we saw the first porous performance on the defensive end in quite some time. In this installment of Laker Film Room, I take a look at how the Wizards took advantage of the Lakers’ poor floor balance, Lonzo Ball’s solid performance sans despite his shooting struggles, and the stark difference in shotmaking between the two teams.
The goal of Laker Film Room is to provide Lakers fans with consistent, thoughtful content that helps you enjoy the game on a deeper level. I’m able to do that because I don’t work for a publication that demands that I cover the most sensational material, which typically gets the most views and clicks. As a result, I rely on the support of Lakers fans to help me produce my work. If you believe in what I do, please considering support my work on either Venmo or Patreon.
