57 games are in the books and the Lakers are 7 games out of the playoffs. In a year without any incentive to lose but also without a realistic shot at the playoffs, it’s a year to focus on growth. Many seasons are defined by winning or losing. For LA, this one is different. The process […]
Lakers Offense This was LA’s highest CPOE performance on the year, scoring 128 points when they’d be only expected to score 112.5. We’ll focus mostly on the offense today, because there was a lot of good that came out of this game. Transition LA went OFF in transition. Here’s their shot chart: They had some […]
The Lakers data from this one isn’t pretty. The offense is nowhere near even being average, but it’s not a huge surprise considering the personnel the team is running out on the court. Tyler Ennis, Corey Brewer, Alex Caruso, Vander Blue, Ivica Zubac, and Andrew Bogut are all players you probably don’t want receiving minutes in […]
The Lakers have spoken a lot about wanting to get out and run, especially with their young players and with a great passer like Lonzo Ball on the roster. The team has accomplished this goal, getting out in transition second most of any team in the league with 19.97% of their possessions being in transition. […]
Well that was fun while it lasted. The Lakers were playing like a 40 win team for a few weeks, but they’ve fallen back down to earth lately. A brutal loss to a weakened Clippers team leaves us with a numb and bitter feeling. LA has had the 3rd easiest schedule so far this season […]
The Lakers won a game and lost once since our last Lakers data report, but there’s been little movement in their overall team data. They still sit at a projected 31 wins based on how the team has played so far and the games remaining, good for 12th in the West.
This game was terrible and the Lakers offense was really bad, but the defense yet again was strong for LA and helped us earn the win. The Lakers have moved up from playing like a 31 win team to 33 after the ugly win against Phoenix. If you haven’t seen the following win projections before:
The Lakers played their worst game of the season in their rematch against Washington according to the Forum Blue & Gold Points Over Expectation (POE) NBA and Lakers data. By a lot. They rebounded somewhat against Milwaukee to only post their fifth worst POE performance on the year. The worst game LA had played before […]
The Lakers showed great resilience in Wednesday’s game vs. Boston but ultimately didn’t come out of the game with a win. The team dropped from 15th in Points Over Expectation (POE) to 19th after an extremely poor offensive performance, sliding them down a win in the projected standings.
As Pete and Darius brought up on the latest LakerFilmRoom podcast, the Lakers’ team has been quite the inverse of what we’ve expected to see thus far. The defense has really carried the team while the offense is much lower ranked. This comes as a surprise to us all, but is it something we should […]
