In the 2021 NBA playoffs, the Los Angeles Lakers lost their first game to the Phoenix Suns.
The Lakers came back to tie the series in the second game, thanks to outstanding efforts from LeBron James and Anthony Davis. However, as we head into game three of this first-round battle, there are still some issues that the club is attempting to answer.
When you look at the scoreboards, it looks like both games were close and hotly contested. While this is true to some extent, there was one aspect of game two that stood out: the attitude displayed by the Laker players at the Talking Stick Resort Arena, which was considerably improved.
The next several games will be intriguing to watch, but Laker Nation should temper their expectations a little. The Lake Show might be easily cancelled in the first round if it does not find consistency across the floor.
