The bad from the Los Angeles Lakers’ win:
Did anyone scout Jerami Grant and let the Lakers know that this guy can play?
Sometimes when Lake Show Life gets on the coaching staff (Which is almost a daily occurrence these days!) it’s about the most obvious adjustments that do not get done. Like coming up with a simple plan to slow down the ONLY OFFENSIVE THREAT the Detroit Pistons have in Jerami Grant.
You see, what got lost in the fight and the Russell Westbrook/Anthony Davis explosions was the fact that Grant lit the Lakers up for 36 points last week. That and he knocked down five 3 pointers.
Anyone think that the Los Angeles Lakers reputable defensive coach Frank Vogel would have noticed? PFFT!
Lakers fans, the Detroit Pistons would have been beaten by 50 points if Jerami Grant wasn’t just as hot as LeBron was in this game. The only human being in the building that could stop Grant in this game was Detroit head coach, Dwane Casey, who for some reason sat this guy down for an extended period of time.
Jerami Grant finished with 32 points (11-20 shooting with four 3 pointers!), 6 rebounds and 4 assists.
The quality of play for both teams!
If you thought the Sacramento game was bad, this one was worse. Bad shooting, sloppy play, turnovers, bad execution. Hopefully, the beer and food were good for the Staples Center crowd because the basketball levels for both teams were definitely flat.
