The Los Angeles Lakers looked wholly uncompetitive in a 108-92 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night, in a game that got the boo birds rustling in their nests at Staples Center. It was the much-anticipated debut of Lonzo Ball, who posted a middling 3 point, 4 assist, & 9 rebound stat line on just 1-6 shooting from the field. The tape was much kinder to him, as his teammates continually botched the opportunities that he created for them. In the latest installment of Laker Film Room, I take a look at Lonzo Ball’s game, as well as the Lakers’ porous pick and roll defense.
