The Los Angeles Lakers were unable to get off to a good start as they began their seven-game road trip in Phoenix last night. Losing both the game as well as Nick Young to suspension, the Lakers’ frustration continues to grow as they keep sinking lower into the standings.
Young was upset with the way things ended last night after a hard foul by Suns’ rookie center Alex Len led to an altercation ending with both players being ejected from the game. After the game, Young spoke to the media and was bothered about none of his teammates coming to his defense after the play. Facing suspension, Young will not be available in the second game of their road trip, which takes place on Friday against the Boston Celtics.
With players still injured and Young being suspended, the Lakers looked to the D-league and signed guard Manny Harris to a 10-day contract. The Lakers are currently on a six-game losing streak and have the second worst record in the Western Conference.
