Another road trip, another loss for the Los Angeles Lakers. It has become clear that the Lakers have chemistry issues. They just can't get on the same page. The Lakers trailed most of the game, but they did fight back and actually tied the game. But the Chicago Bulls made a late run, and it was too much for the Lakers to handle. Earl Clark continues to be a bright spot. His enthusiasm and energy has become a valuable asset.
The defense which has been a problem all season long continues to be a major problem. If the Lakers are going to go anywhere the season, the defense has to be a priority. Unfortunately, it seems that it has taken a backseat. Gasol came off the bench tonight, but made it known after the game that he wasn't too happy about it. Could this mean that a move maybe coming?
The Lakers will head to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies on Wednesday, 5 PM PST. The Grizzlies have been playing excellent basketball and will be another tough opponent. Let's hope the Lakers can play well and stop the bleeding.
