The Lakers suffered a heartbreaking loss last night to the Chicago Bulls. Thanks to a defensive breakdown, Taj Gibson got open for a buzzer-beating layup to win the game in overtime. Despite the tough loss, the team is still in relatively high spirits as they head to Miami for another showdown with the defending champions.

Kendall Marshall spoke highly of Nick Young and how he bails out the team multiple times during games, while Young himself spoke on how great it’s been to learn from Kobe Bryant during the season. Bryant himself also made some news, speaking about how the game has changed, in addition to giving an update on his injury.

Not everyone was in good spirits as Laker great Magic Johnson voiced his displeasure with the Lakers defense on Twitter while both Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry’s returns continue to be pushed back.
