Wesley Johnson Talks About the Lack of Point Guards Available

Wes JohnsonThe Los Angeles Lakers got routed last night in Oakland as their division rivals, the Golden State Warriors, cruised to a 102-83 victory.

The Lakers were in the game throughout the first half, but a big third quarter by the Warriors put the game out of reach. The young and explosive backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson proved to be too much for the Lakers and they had no answer for the onslaught.

Los Angeles is dealing with a plethora of injuries and it found out before the game that Pau Gasol will be sidelined with upper respiratory problems. In addition, the team had three of its four point guards out with injuries and after the game, Wesley Johnson talked about how much of an impact the lack of playmakers has on the team’s production.

The Lakers are expected to have Jordan Farmar back on the court by Christmas, a much needed addition to this struggling team. Without a solid point guard on the roster, the Lakers are having problems getting the offense running and finding easy looks on the court.
