Lakers shooting woes continue in loss to Clippers
The Los Angeles Lakers, led
by LeBron James, are 0-2 to
open the season, and it is becoming painfully evident
that they are unable to shoot.
The Los Angeles Lakers shot
just 35.1% from the field and made just nine of 45 attempts
from three-point range in a
103-97 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night.
The Lakers are currently
19-85 from three this season
after a 10-for-40 night against
the Golden State Warriors.
James remarked on Thursday night, "If we have to rely on [adequate outside shooting] in every game, then we're
"As a result, I don't worry or consider that. It depends on
how fervently we play, how aggressively we play, and how committed we are to going out every night and competing.
We must defend. We'll give ourselves an excellent chance
to prevail when we defend.
Russell Westbrook, a guard
with the Lakers, had a very difficult time from the field
against the Clippers, missing
all 11 of his shots and only managing two points in 27 minutes.
According to the LA Times, Westbrook remarked after
the game, "Solid, played hard,
all you can ask for." "Go to the
next one," I said.
The Lakers are having a
difficult start to the season as
they attempt to recover from a season in which they went
from being the favourites
to win the Western Conference
to missing the playoffs.
