Lakers lose to the Jazz 95-86, and we have to wonder how much longer this guy will continue to coach them.
I’m usually not one to start blaming one person for a team’s failures but tonight’s game was more than enough to let me know that the Lakers are in need of some kind of change. Seeing Metta World Peace play shooting guard officially put me on the #firemikebrown bandwagon, and questioning his ridiculous lineups.
Steve Blake was 2-10 (and those 8 shots were WIDE OPEN shots), Darius Morris 1-6… yet Jodie Meeks did not even see a minute of playing time.
We’ve also gotta throw blame at Pau Gasol who usually doesn’t crumble until the playoffs, but shot 2-9, and only grabbed 7 rebounds in 36 minutes of playing time. In fact, Jordan Hill led the Lakers in rebounding with 12 in just 23 minutes of PT. Metta World Peace was 3-12 and contributed his usual amount of head-scratching plays.
The Lakers next play Golden State on Friday, at Staples.
