Numbers Game: Lakers Laying A Foundation One Block At A Time
Breathe a momentary sigh of relief, Lakers Nation. Yes, it was against the winless Detroit Pistons, but the victory will count just as much as any versus an impressive opponent at the end of the year. Let’s be honest about things, the Lakers hadn’t looked good against anyone prior to last night, so the level of competition is far less significant than the actual outcome. The defense, while far from perfect, looked better. The offense, while everyone in Los Angeles may have a negative opinion about it, produced the second 100-point performance over the first four games. Might not sound impressive, until you consider it took 21 games to reach the mark twice during the 2011-2012 season.
