Podcast: What we learned from the Lakers in their seeding games

New, comment

The Lakers showed a lot of good and bad in their seeding games. Should any of it be taken seriously?

To put it lightly, the Lakers have not exactly played their best basketball inside of the bubble.

After a number of cold shooting games, and lackadaisical effort exhibited throughout the roster, Kyle Kuzma’s game-winning 3-pointer against Denver on Monday felt like a much needed shot in the arm.

There has been recent chatter regarding whether or not there should be “concerns” with the team’s title chances after their recent performances, but with the playoffs just around the corner, the Lakers will soon get their chance to quiet the doubters.

Which brings us to today’s episode.

On this week’s edition of Talk-O-Tuesday, our hosts Alex Padilla and Alex Regla spend the majority of the show discussing if the Lakers’ recent play has altered their confidence at all in the team’s pursuit of a championship.

They also detail which aspects of their play thus far have been the most encouraging and discouraging before making predictions of who the Lakers’ first round opponent will end up being.
