Kamenetzky Brothers's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Mike D'Antoni and Steve Nash assess the quality of the Grammy Road Trip.
So, the Lakers head back to L.A. with a 4-3 roadie in the books. It's certainly a better clip than their road form on the season, and the best performances, win or loss, came against the best competition (Brooklyn, Miami). However, the Lakers remain four games below .500, and it doesn't feel like much ground was gained.
So was this a positive or negative trek? Here were Mike D'Antoni's thoughts:
"It's good. We competed tonight. It's too bad we blew the one in Phoenix, but other than that, we're making strides. We can still do this, but (Miami) set the bar and this is what we have to get to. So this is good for us if we use it as a learning experience and iron out the problems."
The coach's sentiments mirrored those of Steve Nash:
"It's not a disastrous trip, but we would have maybe liked to have gotten another one. Probably the Phoenix (loss) is the one that hurts the most. But, you know, we still have a chance to continue this run of form, which has been a little bit better. You know, we get a chance to win two of three or three of four from here on out."
A chance they better cash in, unless guys are big on mid-April vacations.
