The LA Lakers have been poor all season and currently post a quite embarrassing record of 16-32 for a team that is so used to winning.
Three times this season have the Lakers gone on six-game losing streaks, but last night in another loss, this time to the Minnesota Timberwolves, they extended their current winless run to seven.
Since moving to Los Angeles from Minneapolis, the Lakers record losing streak stands at 10 games, an achievement posted at the end of the 1993-1994 season. The Lakers ended up with a record of 33-49 that year, a total that this seasons side will probably feel envious of come April.
Yesterdays loss to the T'wolves was another poor display. The return of Steve's Nash and Blake were not enough to improve the side as they conceded 100 points or more for the 15th straight time in a row, for the first time since they managed going 17 in a row in 1987.
With Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol already out for a few weeks with injury the misery continued to pour in LA as Jodie Meeks and Jordan Hill both had to leave the game having picked up injuries.
The Lakers will face the Cavs and 76ers on the road, then welcome Chicago and Utah to Staples Center in their next four games. Those are all very winnable games, even for injury ravaged Los Angeles, and will have to pick up at least one W if they don't want to make history for all the wrong reasons.
