Monday marked the third time in three games that the Los Angeles Lakers have gone into overtime, and the second time that they’ve done it against the Oklahoma City Thunder during that short span.

The Lakers won all three of those games, marking just the seventh time in NBA history that a team has won three consecutive overtime games, but they had to scrap for every one of them despite the fact that they were the better team on paper.

On today’s podcast, our hosts Anthony and Jas kick things off by breaking down the Lakers’ ugly 114-113 win over the Thunder, and whether or not the team’s most recent performances are causes for concern.

Following that, Anthony and Jas get into why the Lakers’ offense hasn’t been as sharp without Anthony Davis and if that could be an issue come playoff time. They also discuss KCP’s shooting woes and why he needs to get going for the Lakers to return to being the dominant team they were to start the season.

To wrap things up, Anthony and Jas touch on the Utah Jazz and if they are a threat to the Lakers come playoff time.
