The Lakers Nation Podcast is back, and this time we break down a big matchup with the San Antonio Spurs. While the game may not have gone the way that coach Luke Walton may have wanted, there were still a lot of positives to take away from a gutsy performance by the short-handed Lakers. We discuss the top performers of the game, as well as why it was such an important opportunity for growth for the young players. D’Angelo Russell’s injury is also analyzed, as well as how Los Angeles coped with his absence.
We also take a look at Luol Deng, and why his best position may pose a very difficult problem for Walton. With five games to go in a brutal six-game stretch, can this young team pick up a few wins and stay on track to be a playoff team in the West?
