The Lakers are still struggling to implement Coach Mike Brown's hybrid Princeton offense. On the plus side, the team is shooting an impressive 49.8% from the field.
Obviously by the 0-3 record, something is not working.
If the Lakers are falling apart nightly, it's because of turnovers.
Through three games, the team is averaging 19.7 turnovers a game while their opponents are at 12.0.
The Lakers would like to be a better defensive team and they will be eventually this season. It's difficult to play defense when turnovers are feeding the other team's fast break.
So far the biggest culprit has been Kobe Bryant with five a game. Metta World Peace (3.7) and Dwight Howard (3.3) aren't far behind him.
