Top 3 questions for Lakers heading into the 2nd half of the season
- Updated: February 16, 2014
After a much-needed break, the Los Angeles Lakers head into the second half of the NBA season looking to shake off what has been a nightmare stretch.
Entering All-Star Weekend, the Lakers lost 22 out of their last 27 games; that included setting a franchise record seven straight home game losses, and three separate losing streaks of at least six games within that span.
Also adding to their woes during that stretch, the team has lost five of their six top scorers in Kobe Bryant (left leg fracture), Pau Gasol (strained right groin), Jodie Meeks (right ankle sprain), Xavier Henry (right knee bone bruise), and Jordan Farmar (hamstring).
However Los Angeles got Steve Blake back from a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, but lost Steve Nash three games after returning to court due to a nagging nerve irritation in his left leg.
It has been nothing short of a disastrous season; here are three questions that the Lakers face in the second half of the season.
