Game Preview

The Los Angeles Lakers will be looking for an improved defensive effort when they visit the Boston Celtics on Thursday night.

The Lakers have allowed at least 127 points in each of their past five games, three of which were losses. Los Angeles, which is giving up an average of 117.6 points per contest this season, surrendered at least 30 points in each quarter of Tuesday’s 138-122 loss to Atlanta, giving up 36 points in both the first and third quarters.

“We’ve got to figure out how to give more resistance defensively,” Lakers coach Darvin Ham told reporters after the game. “Looking at it with clear eyes on how we can turn this thing around and not make those same mistakes that eventually hurt us, those self-inflicted wounds.”
