The Lakers took another step to the edge Sunday with a 136-115 loss to the Golden State Warriors. There still are 72 games still to play, which is not altogether comforting for a team that is 1-9 and one that has yet to establish any sort of defensive intensity.
Coach Byron Scott said the Lakers gave up too many transition baskets because of a lack of effort.
“Our guys were jogging,” he said. “We can’t win that way. Period.”
