Mike D’Antoni Placing A Lot of Responsibility on Jordan Farmar

Jordan FarmarThe Los Angeles Lakers did not show up on Monday night in Phoenix.

After getting blown out by the Golden State Warriors, the Lakers faced the same fate when they traveled to Arizona to play the Suns. Los Angeles was flat for most of the game and there was never really a time when it looked like they were the better team. The Lakers struggled on both ends of the court and walked back into the locker room after a 117-90 loss.

After the game, Mike D’Antoni spoke to the media and talked about what he expects once a true point guard, Jordan Farmar, returns to the lineup.

The Lakers are currently without three point guards and the newly acquired Kendall Marshall is still trying to grasp the new system. With a lack of playmakers on the court, the Lakers are having trouble getting the offense going. As a result, the team is shooting very poorly from the court and turnovers have become a very big issue.

Los Angeles will be back in action on Christmas when they play the Miami Heat.
