Everyone knows why the Lakers keep losing games.

They have never-ending injuries. They don’t have a talented roster. They’re both incapable and unwilling to play defense consistently. Rinse and repeat, and then the Lakers’ fortunes continue to swirl down the drain.

Will the Lakers be able at least to squeak out one win in their upcoming three-game trip with stops against Minnesota (Tuesday), Cleveland (Wednesday) and Philadelphia (Friday)?

This all became a topic of discussion on Time Warner Cable’s Access SportsNet on Saturday where host Jaime Maggio, 710 ESPN’s Beto Duran and I dissected debated that very point.
