Following the worst loss of the season, and the worst loss in recent memory, to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night, newcomer Kendall Marshall talked to the media in the locker room and attempted to explain the collapse.

Marshall had arguably the best performance of all the Lakers on Friday night with 16 points and 10 assists, but was unable to help the team compete against a clearly better all-around Clippers squad. The UNC product said the following about the loss to the division rivals on TWCSportsNet via Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

In the season opener on Oct. 29, the Lakers shocked the Clippers on their home floor by upsetting the team that was considered a legitimate NBA title contender. Unfortunately, so many injuries have occurred since the season opener that this Lakers team can barely put enough healthy players on the floor on a nightly basis.

With Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar, Xavier Henry and Steve Blake all on the shelf, the Lakers aren’t putting the team on the floor that was intended. Although the Lakers will be getting Bryant and Nash back after the upcoming road trip, the team will still have to shoulder the load in the meantime.
