Lakers Rumors & News Recap: Nash-Led Lakers Heating Up!

NashChristmasWith Steve Nash healthy and back running the point guard position, the Los Angeles Lakers are starting to hit their stride and may be on the verge of reaching the potential intended after pulling the trigger on two blockbuster trades in the off-season. The win over the New York Knicks on Christmas Day was impressive to say the least and might be a sign of things to come.

Heading into Wednesday night’s matchup against the Denver Nuggets, the Lakers have won five straight and remain undefeated with Nash back in the fold. The team appears to be firing on all cylinders with the two-time NBA MVP leading the way and the sky may be the limit if the new-look Lakers can continue to build on their improved team chemistry.

Along with the longest winning streak under head coach Mike D’Antoni, the Lakers’ front office appears to be softening on pursuing free agents to help improve the backcourt with backup Steve Blake on the shelf recovering from surgery.

With GM Mitch Kupchak no longer looking for outside options in terms of free agents or via trade, the team appears to be content with the direction the team is going with Nash back on the floor. It remains to be seen if Kupchak and company keep this mindset if the squad starts to struggle once again, but moving forward this team is back on track as a legitimate force to be reckoned with in the Western Conference.
