On the latest episode of the Lakers Nation Podcast we break down the Lakers’ tough road loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Lakers knew they were in for a difficult night going up against Russell Westbrook and the Thunder, and while they fought hard throughout, they ultimately came up a little short. We take a look at one play in particular that the Thunder tormented the Lakers defense with, and also discuss which Los Angeles player receives the unfortunate LVP award for the game.
On the positive side, we dig into Julius Randle, who was the obvious MVP of the game, and figure out how he was able to turn things around so completely from his poor performance against the Utah Jazz a few nights ago. All that, plus thoughts on Jordan Clarkson’s role as the team’s sixth man and a mini-rant about the NBA’s road back-to-back’s on this edition of the LN Podcast:
