Lakers are 44-2 when they commit 22 fouls or less.

    Very interesting stat. Maybe this is some the Lakers should control during the playoffs, right? Sound-off!

    NBA.com: The Lakers are a more consistent offensive team. When you’ve got the weapons they have, you’re not going to have too many off nights. Only twice have they really laid an egg offensively: in Miami on Dec. 19 and in Denver on Feb. 27. But defensively, the Lakers have had some struggles, most recently in Portland on March 9.

    Fouls tend to be an issue for L.A. In the Lakers’ 56 wins, their opponents have attempted just 23.4 free throws per 100 possessions. And in their 14 losses, their opponents have attempted 32.1. Further, the Lakers are 12-12 when they commit 23 fouls or more and they’re 44-2 when they commit 22 fouls or less.

      Guys, this is basketball 101… If you don’t get the
      other team on the line, they don’t get the easy hoop.
      If you don’t fall other guys you open space for more

      I just heard that if we score more points than the other team, we are 100% likely to win the game. That is interesting.
