Safe to say, the Los Angeles Lakers are not in a decent spot at the moment. The team ventured out to Denver to take on the Nuggets on Saturday night and wound up on the less than desirable finish of a beatdown, as home team proved to be the best, 133-96. The misfortune thumped Los Angeles to 21-22 on the season and keeping in mind that they are as yet in the seventh spot in the Western Conference, they’re presently two games back of the six seed. More importantly playoff spot.

The Lakers have battled with consistency this season for various reasons, yet in eyes of Magic Johnson, something different was out of order against Denver. Johnson posted a tweet after the game abrading the Lakers for an absence of exertion and saying that Jeanie Buss merits better compared to how the group is treating the floor.

“We as Lakers fans can accept being outplayed but we deserve more than a lack of effort and no sense of urgency,” Magic Johnson on Twitter. “Owner Jeanie Buss, you deserve better.”

It’s a really condemning assertion from Johnson, a Laker legend who is as connected to the team as anybody, regardless of whether he broadly found employment elsewhere in their front office during a game. Yet, regardless of this, Russell Westbrook was gotten some information about the tweet after the game and clarified that he trusts Johnson, while qualified for his perspective, doesn’t have the foggiest idea of what continues during the teams every day.

“I do not have a reaction,” said Westbrook, who scored 19 points on a 7-for-15 shooting, an improvement from his recent shooting slump. “Everybody is entitled, in this world, to their opinion. Regardless of what that it is. You can either take it and run with it or you can take it and put it in one ear and out the other or you cannot respond to it.”

Saturday’s misfortune was the Lakers’ third straight, dropping them back beneath .500 at 21-22. As indicated by information assembled by Stats and Information, this is the initial time since James’ tenderfoot year that his group was beneath .500 at the 43-game characteristic of its season.

The team will get their chance to bounce back on Monday when they will face Utah Jazz.
