Following the loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night on the road, the Los Angeles Lakers leading scorer Nick Young spoke in the locker room. Young compared the state of the locker room to a funeral via Bill Oram of the OC Register:

With the Lakers losing eight of last nine games, the team has hit a brick wall with the squad seemingly unable to get anything going no matter the competition. Along with the constant struggles on the road or at home, the Lakers are still without Kobe Bryant, Xavier Henry, Steve Blake and Steve Nash.

As for Young, the team will take another severe blow if the Sixth Man of the Year candidate can’t get back on the floor against the Houston Rockets or in the near future. Young’s back injury hasn’t been diagnosed as of yet, even though it was suffered in the loss to the Denver Nuggets, but if it is considered serious the team will be without its leading scorer.

Young is currently averaging 16.6 points per game and has been a constant scoring threat off the bench for the Lakers.
