The Los Angeles Lakers have been difficult to watch with Lonzo Ball out of the lineup, and both they and the Houston Rockets entered New Year’s Eve on 5-game losing streaks. Despite being without Ball, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Brook Lopez, the Lakers mustered up an energetic performance before falling in double overtime, 148-142.
In this installment of Laker Film Room, I take a look at Julius Randle’s big night, Tyler Ennis’ rare outburst, Josh Hart’s career-high, and the Lakers’ pick & roll defense down the stretch.
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.
