The Lakers coaching staff was pretty much thrown together a couple weeks back and it showed last night against the Knicks. Kobe Bryant was having some lower back troubles and needed assistance from the Knicks training staff. Not a good look for your team Mike D'Antoni.
The Lakers would go down big early before fighting back late in the game and ultimately losing 116-107. The offense looks out of sync, and the defense couldn't stop a nose bleed giving up 41 points in the 1st quarter. Magic Johnson had a few words for the defense. Dwight Howard resorted to some pushing to get a basket against Tyson Chandler, and then fouled Carmelo Anthony causing him to twist his ankle which you can watch in the video below.
