Lakers finding meaning in season’s final stretch as wins keep coming

By on August 17, 2020

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“At the beginning of the year we might have just gave up,” Ball said. “Take the ‘L’ and go home, be happy with a 3-1 trip. We’re growing up. We know we can win every game we’re in.”Since a loss to Charlotte on Jan. 5 brought their season-worst losing streak to nine games, the Lakers have rattled off 17 wins in their last 24 games, including nine straight victories at home.So, should the Lakers be thinking playoffs? Probably not. Entering Sunday, they remained 6½ games behind eight-place Denver (35-28), with both the Clippers and Utah Jazz still ahead of them and fighting for a playoff spot.Thomas, however, is helping the Lakers assign meaning to these final 20 games.“When I got here I really said why not win now?” he said. “Not saying it’s all on me, and we’re winning just ’cause of me, but I think I’ve put that in these guys’ minds. That we can win every game we play in. Why can’t we? We’re just as good as everyone else. Let’s win now and try to make a run for the playoffs.” This year did not mark the first time a mid-season trade deposited Isaiah Thomas into the early stages of a long-term rebuild. Since arriving from Cleveland on Feb. 8, Thomas has on multiple occasions likened the Lakers’ situation to that of the 2015 Boston Celtics, who were 11 games under .500 before acquiring Thomas and went on to win 40 games and earn the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.“It was a young team thinking rebuild and play the young guys and things like that,” Thomas said, “but we came together and was like, shoot, if we play hard and leave it all out there on the floor, anything can happen.“I think that’s what’s happening here.”After sweeping a four-game trip and extending their winning streak to a season-best five games, something is clearly afoot for the Lakers (28-34), who with 20 games remaining already have more wins than in any of the previous four seasons. On Saturday in San Antonio, they rallied behind three 3-pointers in the final minutes from Lonzo Ball to overcome a 17-point deficit and defeat the Spurs 116-112. To get there, the Lakers would not only need to make up a half-dozen games on the Nuggets, but leapfrog the other two teams, as well. A tall order. But the progress the Lakers have made is undeniable and significant to their future; both for organic growth and their ability to attract free agents in the offseason.“They’re growing up really quickly,” Coach Luke Walton said. “We see it happening and we’re excited about it. But the fact they just keep finding a way, it takes a team that believes in each other to do what they’ve done.”The Lakers will put their winning streak on the line on Monday against red-hot Portland (37-26), which climbed to third in the West with a 108-100 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday. The Trail Blazers have won six in a row, and have already beaten the Lakers twice this season, including 95-92 on Dec. 23 – the second loss of what became the nine-game skid.“There’s always going to be ups and downs in this league,” Walton said, “that (losing streak) was definitely a low point in this season. Right now is definitely a high point.”The Lakers have not lost since the All-Star break, despite significant roster upheaval. Channing Frye underwent an appendectomy, Corey Brewer was waived to be able to chase a ring, Josh Hart broke his hand, and Brandon Ingram suffered a groin injury.“It’s unfortunate that B.I. and Josh Hart are hurt,” Walton said, “but as far as the way the guys are playing and the chemistry they have and the continuity they’re building together and the trust they’re having in each other, all the things we’ve been putting value on all season long you’re starting to see those things come out while they’re competing.”The Lakers would need to win 13 of their final 20 games to achieve a 41-41 record, something very few would have predicted as even a possibility before the season. The recent run of success has led to open discussion about such things, with Kyle Kuzma saying Saturday he doesn’t “see why we can’t get” to .500.“It means that we’re moving on to the right direction,” Kuzma said. “Means that we’re growing as a group. It’s been a long season, up and down. From losing nine straight to being one of the hottest teams in the league right now.”Whether the result is the Lakers pushing the teams ahead of them in the playoff race, or just raising the bar going into the offseason, Thomas has been a catalyst for the Lakers’ progress. He said he talks to them about making the playoffs and playing to win on the court, in timeouts, on the bus, during film sessions.“I’ve seen this story before,” he said. “I’ve seen it. I’ve been in this position before so that’s easy to come in and change guys’ mindsets.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
