Major Problems LA Lakers Must Fix Immediately

The Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Los Angeles Clippers 125-101 on Thursday night in a game that exposed nearly all of the team's fatal flaws.

Mike D'Antoni's group found themselves in a massive hole early after failing to record a single point over the game's first five minutes, while Blake Griffin outscored the Lakers 18-17 after one quarter of play.

Although the Lakers flashed glimpses of promise in the second quarter, the team's defense simply couldn't find ways to contain the Clippers' lethal attack, as they allowed Chris Paul and Co. to post 64 first-half points and 101 through the game's first 36 minutes.

With just 28 games to play after the All-Star break, the Lakers appear to be in serious danger of missing out on the postseason party.
