The growing pains begin, the Lakers young roster showed the two sides that we will see from them throughout this season in their first two games. On one hand you have the game against the Rockets in which we won, during that game the youngsters, Randle, Clarkson, Russell, were all playing good basketball shooting at a pretty high percentage. Last night was a different story, all three off those guys were non factors, and not only that the percentage they shot at with the volume of shots they were taking, ultimately probably cost the Lakers a 2-0 start. It's frustrating because you know from a fans perspective it seems like we could've easily won that game, when your 3 best players shoot 8-30, 26% from the field, it's going to be almost impossible to outscore the other team. The Vets like Nick Young, Luol Deng, Lou Williams, and Timofey Mozgov were able to do enough to have us hanging around through the entirety of the game. Those four combined to shoot 15-35, which is 42%, and they combined for 50 points, can't ask for much more out of that group of guys, that's about their ceiling right there. The team's success rate comes down to if these young guys can perform at a high level or not, when they performed at a high level they were able to beat the Rockets, when they couldn't they lost to the Jazz. Growing pains are apart of the process, theses kids are barely old enough to drink, some of them aren't even old enough to do that, can't expect playoff runs from a team full of kids playing in a league full of men. This team is still a little ways away, but damn can they ball when they're clicking, so regardless of their record this year it's still going to be a blast watching them play. Oh, and to add insult to injury Brandon Ingram got injured last night, it didn't seem too serious since he was originally supposed to return before being reevaluated and told he couldn't. Hopefully it was just a precautionary thing and he'll be alright to come back within the next few days, the last thing we need is him losing a year of basketball from an early season injury. I'm still riding high on this young team for sure don't get me wrong, but last night reminded me for sure that there's still going to be some real tough nights for the Lake Show 2.0.
