The Los Angeles Lakers have always been the best soap opera in sports, but the Lonzo Ball experience is something to behold, even by their gaudy standards. What should have been a routine, mid-week matchup against a quality Eastern Conference opponent turned into a war of words between LaVar Ball and Marcin Gortat, with John Wall and Lonzo Ball caught in the middle.
After the dust settled, the Lakers had turned in their best defensive performance in recent memory, in a thrilling, 102-99 victory over the Washington Wizards. In this installment of Laker Film Room, I look at the Lakers’ complete team effort on that end of the floor, led by Julius Randle and Josh Hart, as well as Brandon Ingram’s fantastic 4th Quarter performance.
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.
