The Lakers lost to the Nuggets at 104: 128 at home today, and also ushered in their first three-game losing streak this season. The Lakers' game was simply terrible, not only contributing the highest 19 turnovers this season, but also With a new low of 18 assists this season, the Lakers have such a poor performance, the fundamental reason is because of James' absence. However, the Christmas war after 2 days of rest is the focus of attention of fans and friends, and also the redemption battle of the Lakers. They have lost 3 games in a row and they ca n’t lose anymore. Once they lose again, they will not only usher in 4 losing streak, and the number one position in the West will be threatened, but in an interview James gave a commitment to the Christmas War, now fans and friends are happy.
When the reporter asked about the Christmas War, James said: "I definitely won't be absent from the Clippers Christmas War. Although the Lakers management approached me and hoped that I could accept forced rotation, I refused their request. I I think that this behavior is disrespectful to the fans. The fans buy tickets to watch the stars. If the health is good, every player should appear on the field and I am 35 years old. I now enjoy every minute on the field. "I have to say that such a commitment by James makes fans and friends extremely happy, and if the Lakers want to stop the trend of losing streak, James must play, then Davis + James combination and Leonard + The George team duel is definitely a fierce battle between Mars and the Earth. Fans and friends will be blessed to enjoy a visual feast.
So how important is James to the Lakers? Vogel asked what he missed most when James was absent. Vogel smiled and said, "It's hard to say, all." Lakers coach Frank Vogel said no one can replace LeBron James as the Lakers. What has been done. There was no way for a group of people to replace James. "I don't do well defensively. The better we do, the more teams will see and work hard to attack our weaknesses," said Lakers Anthony Davis after the game. Not only is it irreplaceable in the hearts of fans and friends, but it is also irreplaceable in the minds of head coach Vogel. Such a thirty-year-old man is so needed, it is really gratifying.
The biggest problem for the Lakers is the lack of a stable third scoring point, and the defensive level also depends too much on Davis and LeBron. If the two core players are absent, the Lakers defense will drop a lot, so it is necessary to cultivate the third and even The fourth scoring point is very important. Caruso has the ability to score. It is necessary to train him to break through the scoring ability. It is even better to get the Kings' Bogdanovic without losing Kuzma. Organizational ability. As for Iguodala, do n’t force it. If you are cut, you will pick up and sign. If you are not cut, there is nothing to change. The Grizzlies are reluctant to let go. I hope James will stay healthy. I hope the Lakers will stay healthy. Looking forward to the Christmas battle between the Lakers and the Clippers.
