The team had plenty of positive vibes in the locker room during their post-game interviews. Nick Young spoke to the media to address the team’s win at Staples Center saying the following according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

With the team way out of the playoff picture, Young’s comments shows a bright sign of life to the Lakers season of lows with defeats and injuries that continue to pile up ever since Kobe Bryant’s knee injury end his season prematurely.

It’s still a sight to see when the undermanned Lakers pull off an astounding victory late in the regular season. The purple and gold continue to try derail playoff hopes contending teams late this season while the future remains uncertain for many of the players.

Only nine games remain in a season that couldn’t end soon enough for the Lakers.

With nothing to lose, the Lakers front office have a little more time to see players on the roster showcase their talent in the final stretch. Players such as Xavier Henry, Kent Bazemore, Jodie Meeks, Kendall Marshall, MarShon Brooks and Jordan Farmar will need to prove their worth in the final few games in order to merit a spot on the squad next season.

    Smh, two weeks left in the season and they come up with this… best if only half the roster returns. Need defensive minded players not excuses.

    what are we trying to do by winnig game, or is this logical???? i am fed up with lakers future plans.we gotta keep losing to take one of the best young prospects.but if lottery pick is rigged then i have nothing to say about it.anyway i hope lakers will be a championship team next year by hook by crook..

      It’s a double edged sword, because losing games obviously sets the franchise up for the future, but it also makes players not want to come back. The good news is they have a tough schedule in front of them with few games they should be able to win. Utah, Orlando, Sacramento all have easier schedules to finish out the season so that should help us tank without compromising the players “fight”.
