Lakers News: Jodie Meeks Tired Of ‘Same Story’ Every Game

The Lakers fell to the Houston Rockets tonight, making it nine out of their last ten games that they have come up short. The Lakers looked good for the first half, but a terrible third quarter put the Lakers in a hole that they were unable to climb out of.

Turnovers and bad transition defense were once again the main issues for the Lakers tonight. It is beginning to become a theme for the Lakers this season, and Jodie Meeks has noticed that trend as he said on Time Warner Cable Sportsnet:

After being up five at halftime, the Lakers were outscored 33-15 in the third quarter. They also turned the ball over 18 times after turning it over 19 times last night in the loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

The morale of the team seems to be slowly going downhill as Nick Young even compared it to a funeral last night. Something clearly needs to change, but with injuries leaving the Lakers with only nine healthy players, they will be hard pressed to turn things around right now.

Meeks has played well the last couple of games, scoring 21 points tonight after dropping 24 last night. Hopefully the whole team can get things going so they can change this story when they take on the Clippers Friday night.
