Lakers Rumors & News Recap: Lakers’ Defense, Chemistry Improving

dwight nashFollowing the win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers have officially begun a winning streak once again with two straight to their credit. Although two wins isn’t anything to get overly excited about for a team that has underachieved all season long, the play of the team as a whole in the last two games has been impressive and promising to say the least.

The Lakers have shown a newfound sense of purpose on the defensive end of the floor with Kobe Bryant leading the way. Kobe’s defensive intensity has been awe-inspiring with opposing players like Brandon Jennings showing respect for the five-time NBA champion’s effort.

Along with Kobe starting to assume the role of the team’s defensive-stopper, Dwight Howard is starting to return to form as the best all-around center in the NBA. Howard’s presence in the paint and rebirth of sorts since sitting out with the torn labrum injury has also been impressive.

The superstar center appears to be motivated with a chip on his shoulder moving forward. Howard is dominating defensively once again and starting to kick it into high gear offensively tying Kobe for a game-high 31 points in the win over the Bucks on Tuesday.

Although there’s still a ways to go before this team can be labeled as having finally turned things around, the future is starting to look bright in Los Angeles with passionate play starting to become a popular trend amongst the players heading into their showdown with the Miami Heat on Thursday night at Staples Center.
