LTitles are not earned before Halloween, but the feelings generated by the Lakers are not the best after losing to the Thunder, team undergoing total rebuilding, designated to have the worst record in the league and had lost its first four games by 8 points or more.

If the season ended today, the Lakers would be out of the Playoffs with their 2-3 start, which by itself It is not the worst in history, but it is in his defense.

According to data revealed in FS1, Lakers allowed 115 points in each of their first five games, something that did not happen in any of the previous 74 seasons. of the team, which make their league debut in Minnepolis in the league’s second season, 48/49.

  1. Warriors 121-114 Lakers
  2. Suns 115-105 Lakers
  3. Grizzlies 118-121 Lakers
  4. Lakers 125-121 Spurs (TE)
  5. Lakers 115-123 Thunder

119.3 points per game against. The worst in the league. Something not expected for a team that started the campaign as the favorite to win the ring, but their only two victories were because Ja Morant failed to score all three free throws that would have been the tie on Sunday, while they required extra time to win in San Antonio.

The defense has leaked, but it is not the only problem. We already saw some friction between the staff, mainly when Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard almost came to blows against the Suns and the injuries were already present because LeBron James hasn’t played the last two games.
