Lakers News: Wesley Johnson Wants Team To Use Loss As Motivation
[new_royalslider id=”126″]

Tonight represented the low point of the season for the Lakers as they suffered their worst loss in franchise history, a 48 point evisceration at the hands of the Los Angeles Clippers.

With a tough road game against the Denver Nuggets tomorrow, the Lakers won’t have much time to dwell on this loss. Wesley Johnson spoke to reporters on Time Warner Cable SportsNet and wants the team to use this loss as motivation:

“Hopefully everyone will remember this, and take it out on our opponent tomorrow.”

When you lose by nearly 50 points, it’s impossible to find positives. Probably the best thing that the Lakers could do is get right back on the court for another game and redeem themselves and they have that opportunity.

The team has to be embarrassed by their performance tonight and they will definitely be looking to turn it around tomorrow night in Denver. Sometimes being embarrassed, on national television no less, is what a team needs to make a change.

Many players spoke about the team not playing hard enough tonight, and that can never happen with a team as undermanned as this Lakers team is.

The Clippers put their foot on the Lakers’ throats once they had them down and never let up. Johnson is completely right in believing that the Lakers better use this as a reason to get better immediately.
