Lonzo played poorly yet again. It seems like he's hit the end of the hot streak he was having and is playing like he did to begin the season. I think we should be concerned about him. On the balance, he's bad at the rim, a streaky shooter, and a lousy free throw shooter. Not good signs. While it's nice that he's a versatile player that does a lot of other things, his upside is really limited if he can't find a way to score efficiently. I would've loved to see him rise to the challenge of carrying some of the scoring load missed from the Ingram and Kuzma injuries.
I'm sure the Lakers' players were affected by the back-to-back on top of the fact that they've had to play heavy minutes in every game since Ingram went down. So, I'm not going to take too much from this single game. Although, it is a bit embarrassing losing to such a short handed team. They're gonna have to deal with that until both Ingram and Kuzma get back, because they're just not going to get quality minutes from anybody that wasn't already in the rotation when healthy. All the G-league players the Lakers have are awful and shouldn't even be considered for the roster next season.
