The Los Angeles Lakers will play the Washington Wizards tomorrow as they look to win their fourth consecutive game. The team played very well in the past couple of weeks, and with Kobe Bryant on the verge of his return, fans finally have something to smile about.
With a 7-7 record, the Lakers have remained competitive in the Western Conference, something not many people saw happening. Los Angeles will face a mediocre Wizards team Tuesday and prior to the game, Xavier Henry and Nick Young spoke to Yahoo! Sports about the squad’s recent play.
“We have to carry our momentum right now,” Henry said. “Right now guys are playing hard. We’re playing like we want it and when we have everybody playing that hard at one time, we’re really good.”
“Everyone’s starting to know how to play and know what they are supposed to do out there,” said guard Nick Young, who comes off the bench and averages 13.1 points. “We are all relaxed out there, having fun.”
Henry and Young have been very productive for the Lakers this season and especially in this recent winning streak. The coaching needs them to show up on a nightly basis as they are valuable pieces on both ends of the court. These two guards play with confidence and they have been great in the lineup while Bryant has been rehabbing his Achilles injury.
