[new_royalslider id=”127″]

The Lakers struggles seem to be never ending as they fall yet again to the Indiana Pacers despite gaining a few fresh legs and new faces. Veteran point guard Jordan Farmar is used to playing for championship quality squads and can feel the difference in this team.

After the loss, Farmar addressed the issue telling the media on Time Warner Sports Net that the team doesn’t have an identity right now:

“We just don’t have an identity right now…we have a lot of guys coming back, a lot of guys who are new and nobody really knows their role on the team.”

Farmar is not alone in this though as the rest of the team feels the strong disconnect as well and rightly so. The starting lineup is a constant shuffle to which they still have not found the right match.

For Farmar, he has had a lackluster return from the hamstring injury, scoring only five points with seven assists in tonight’s loss. He voiced his frustration stating that he wants to be out there and contribute, but doesn’t like being part of these blowout losses: 

“I’m not a fan of being part of games like this, so it’s a Catch-22. I want to be out there and contribute, but it’s been tough lately.”

Farmar and the Lakers have lost seven of their last 10 games and are looking to finish the season on a higher note. While they won’t make the playoffs this season, it’s important to establish an identity and try to get as many wins as possible.
