Shootaround Report: Lakers Aim For First Win In 2014

Kendall-Marshall

The Los Angeles Lakers left 2013 in a way they would like to forget and put behind them — a roster full of injuries and a six-game losing streak. Entering the new year, the Lakers were hit with more bad news as they lost Jordan Farmar for the second time this season due to a hamstring tear. With all the injuries that have taken place this season, coach Mike D’Antoni has had to utilize every player available to him on the roster. Tonight won’t be any different as the Lakers will be using their 18th different lineup as they host the Utah Jazz.

Kendall Marshall will be the starting point guard for the Lakers tonight after playing well off the bench in the Lakers’ last two games. In their first meeting against the Jazz, the Lakers were without Pau Gasol and lost by two points. While the Jazz are currently in last place in the Western Conference standings, it will be a tough win for a short-handed Laker team. With a win tonight, the Lakers will avoid a season-high seven-game losing streak and get their first win in 2014.

    Kendall Marshall going up against Trey Burke is a College Basketball dream match.

    NASH, just retire man. The best thing you can provide the Lakers organization now is just to retire due to medical reasons and let FO find another PG that will actually play some ball. I know Nash has heart and a class act but at this point, the body is telling Nash it’s time to hang up those sneakers

    Utah has been playing good basketball since Trey Burke came back from injury.

  • Brandon Leong

    Shawn Williams belong on the bench in the first place. He should be given max 10 minutes per game until he can put up like 10 points with the limited time. His role is just rebounding and making those corner 3s which he has failed miserably.

    A win tonight would be nice. Happy that Wes is healthy and I’m happy to see Sacre and Marshall in starting lineup.

    Please let this be an easy win. The Jazz are 11-24 and we’re 13-19 sure that’s not alot but with everyone out this game could go either way.

      Don’t jinx it

    Man I’m watching Access Sports pregame show and all y’all that continue to sleep on Steve Blake need to wake up! He out there practicing in a sling on his right and is strictly using his left?

    Blake is gonna be ambidextrous when he comes back. I don’t know if y’all understand how sick that is! His handles were already decent, this will make him next level good. He’s draining shots with his left also, off a left handed dribble?!? That’s Nash in his prime like….
