Lakers News: Kendall Marshall Struggles in First Game with Lakers

Kendall-MarshallThe Los Angeles Lakers are without three point guards, and as a result, the front office went out and signed Kendall Marshall from the D-League.

Marshall has struggled since being drafted by the Phoenix Suns, but the Lakers are hoping he can help as the other players rehab from their respective injuries. The former North Carolina Tar Heel point guard made his first appearance as a Laker on Saturday night, but his debut was mediocre at best.

In about six minutes of play, Marshall scored three points, but had four turnovers with a plus/minus of -1. After the game, Marshall spoke to reporters and talked about his performance against the Warriors.

The Lakers are having problems getting the offense going and there is little Marshall can do in the immediate future to fix that. It will take some time for the guard to fully understand the system and become a reliable player for the team off the bench. Nevertheless, Jordan Farmar will be getting back on the court soon and he will surely help Marshall transition into this new situation.
