The Lakers summer league team finished play Saturday night after a fast-paced, action-packed battle against the Warriors in which they eventually bowed out with a 83-77 loss. However, the improvement of this year’s team in comparison to last year’s squad was immense, most noticeable in a comparison of the final score in the last game. In 2012, the Lakers lost to the Warriors by 40 points. This year, it was just 6. Obviously the Warriors fielded a different team, but they are still the cream of the crop in terms of young talent in the summer league right now.
While we will be giving more extensive, personalized break downs for key players from the summer league roster, lets start with a run-down of performance for each player on the roster and how they performed.
