    The Lakers have had a great season so far, hopefully these past losses don’t bring them down. I would have to say though, that today’s game was pretty close rather than Thursday nights game were the Phoenix Suns lost by 26 points. Lakers know how to get back up on their feet and will continue to maintain their spot in the next nba championship finals.

    They can say the scheduling is unfair, but they’ll have to toughen up after tough losses. Another 2-game losing streak shows a sign of a fatigued Lakers team. And they have to play again in two days back at the comforts of Staples Center against Memphis. They will come home empty-handed, but no emptiness in confidence and resiliency. To regroup at home after a 2-game losing streak isn’t a bad thing at all.
