Since beating the Hawk last weekend, the Lakers just beat Portland and now will face 3 more games that we should be easier than beating a power like the Blazers. Let’s see what happens by Sunday night, we could be 9-5.
In LA on Sunday, there was precisely one second left on the clock when Trae Young, the Atlanta Hawks’ Curry like rookie, unleashed a floater in the lane that threatened to shred a 15-point comeback for a road win.
The ball hung in the air before backup center Tyson Chandler rose up to get it away, locking in a 107-106 win for the Los Angeles Lakers that improved their season record to 7-6, which has been wayyyy too long since they have even been in this winning category.
Again, ask the Lakers how long it has been since they last felt what it was like to be over .500. The once-proud franchise, with those 16 championship banners hanging from the rafters, went nearly two years since a 111-109 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Nov. 22, 2016 put them at 8-7 to start Brandon Ingram’s rookie year.
