Lakers News: D’Antoni Looking At ‘Small Victories’ In Losing Season

Following a 145-130 loss to the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night, the Lakers officially set the record for most losses in the franchise’s history since moving to Los Angeles. Most coaches would be irate over such a poor record, especially after a game where your team gives up 145 points. However, head coach Mike D’Antoni has his own approach to the disappointments this season has thrown at him.

According to Los Angeles Times’ Mike Bresnahan, D’Antoni believes in looking at the small positives that come from the losses:

“You’ve got to be careful because if you get in these situations it doesn’t help to swing wildly and just take everybody down,” D’Antoni said. “You’ve got to get through it, you’ve got to look for small victories, you’ve got to look to the bright side of things, understanding that it’s not pleasant for anybody to go through.”

Everything that could have gone wrong has for the Lakers this season. At one point this team was 10-9 with Kobe Bryant set to return. As we all know, Bryant would injure his knee six games later and be lost for the year. Injuries to Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar, Xavier Henry, Pau Gasol, and Nick Young would ultimately destroy any chance the Lakers had at a successful campaign.

Although the season hasn’t gone as planned, a lot of players, including Xavier Henry and Ryan Kelly, have shown some promise in their development. With only four games left, it is important for the players to compete and focus on developing their game instead of concentrating on the constant losses.
