What will it take for this team to wake up? Like everyone else at the end of the regular season i assumed Lakers had this magical "extra gear" that they would turn on and all of their problems would simply disappear. But the funny thing is this team has played worse in the post-season than the regular season. This team was supposed to be on a mission, they were supposed to breeze through the west like they did in the regular season.
Out of the 9 games they have played 5 of them have been blown leads (Utah games 1,2,3,5 Hou game 2) thats 55% of their games they have blown a lead. Pretty big number for a championship caliber team. Out of those 9, 7 of them the opponent has shot more free-throws which only means one thing, the Lakers settle for jump shots, while the other team attacks the basket. In 5 of those games they have turned the ball over more. I could keep going on but it would just depress you so i am just going to go on with the question.
We have gone from favorites to the 3rd or 4th best team in the playoffs in two weeks....
What has happened to the Lakers in the postseason? Their record does not show just how poorly this team has played.
