Still mired in their delicate start to the season, the derby night they lost to the Clippers further highlighted the lack of cohesion and unity in Frank Vogel’s formation, which alternates between anxious in attack and defense during games, still struggling to wrap up.
In the last five defeats, LeBron James’ teammates have lost four times with seven points or less. And tonight again, they were never able to reverse the trend in money time.
“Not one action is costing us the game in particular, but obviously there were opportunities for us to take the lead, but where we failed to do the right action. That sort of thing sums up where we are in our season. We are working on building cohesion and overcoming these. bad patch”And Frank Vogel explained, weaker than ever from the chaotic start of the Lakers season and lost that first derby.
Boxed by Training Tyronn Lue
For his part, Anthony Davis took his hat to the Clippers to put his shots on at the end. “It’s just the little things that didn’t work out for us, Luke Kennard made some big shots. We had chances, we tried to make a difference, but it didn’t happen tonight.”
Particularly frustrated after the meeting, LeBron James for his part justified his difficulties by not having a rhythm due to his passing through the “isolation” box. Not content to tip his hat to Tyronn Lue, “Wonderful coach”, King inevitably returned to this final in which the Clippers fared better.
“We know they are one of the best 3-point teams in the league. However, in most of their baskets, we defended fairly well,” LeBron’s appreciation. “The three open points scored by Luke Kennard were the result of Ty Lue’s hard work after the time-out expired. The system he designed blew up our defense. The next three points for Kennard, we defended well, challenged AD very well and Marcus Morris’ last shot came with the plate, so Our defense in general was timely and at the right time. But on arrival, a better attack will defeat a good defense. We will have to do better next time we play with them.”
By trying to make the game more cohesive on both sides of the playing field, which “violet and gold” lacks so far.
