The Lakers were preparing for a counterattack in the second half by recruiting a large number of valuable resources in the trade market. In fact, it is the Lakers who recorded a winning streak by capturing Golden State and Dallas in the first two games of the second half. It is still in 12th place in the West with 29 wins and 32 losses, but it is a situation where it can raise the ranking enough because the gap with the mid-ranking teams is not large.
But LeBron’s injury put the Lakers’ plans in jeopardy. If LeBron’s absence is extended as the Lakers fear, their playoff challenge may be in vain.
Lebron is also leading the Lakers this season with averages of 29.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 6.9 assists. During LeBron’s absence, how long the Lakers can hold on has become very important.
