The Los Angeles Lakers lost games due to the offensive struggles in the Orlando bubble. The team won the game against the Clippers. They had another good game. That’s it. LA lost three straight games. LeBron James skipped the game against the Houston Rockets due to his sore groin. This was also the first game the team played after clinching the No.1 seed in the conference. Something changed in the game against the Indiana Pacers. The offense was brilliant and they even held TJ Warren to 0 points in the second quarter. Head coach Frank Vogel talked about the game Lakers had on Saturday.

In the second quarter of the match, the Lakers’ defense leveled up the game and the offense was even more brilliant.
Frank Vogel has great prediction about the next Lakers games
The Pacers scored less points. Warren scored 0 points in the second quarter. Let’s not forget that he scored 18 points in the first game. King James scored 17 points in the first half. Draymond Green says this is his best performance inside the NBA bubble.
Los Angeles had a brilliant play from their bench players. Quinn Cook was great. He scored 13 points in the first half of the game. Dwight Howard excelled, too.
The Lakers finished the game with a loss. But, this loss will only serve as a motivation. Players can use this loss to adjust their game and fix some of the mistakes. They will need this motivation to enter the postseason. LeBron will take the team to the big win. He promised to win the championship and from what we can see, he will definitely win it. The Lakers have a good game. Let’s see what happens in the bubble.
