Derek Fisher explains how the Lakers could really benefit from everyone being healthy and how that was a key factor in their loss to the Pacers on Monday night.
“Lakers got off to a good start, shooting the basketball well and then again you start to see the depth and the missing players like Josh [Hart] and Brandon [Ingram].”
It doesn’t take just one person to define a team, all 15 players have a role and it was evident. They are now on a three game losing streak and Fisher knows the reason:
“You start to miss those guys that shore up the bench that give starters a chance to rest so that you can sustain the defensive intensity, but even also shooting the basketball, guys with fresh legs that can attack and be aggressive out there.”
