So far this season, had the Lakers made all their free throws, they would have been in a better position to close out several games, such as the New Orleans home game earlier in the season or Toronto or the Philadelphia home game or the Phoenix home game. NOW I KNOW IT’S VERY DIFFICULT TO MAKE ALL YOUR FREE THROWS BUT IT IS SOMETHING THE YOUNG LAKERS NEED TO STRIVE FOR.
If they had made all their free throws in the fifteen games they lost so far this season, they wold have won 5 more games. That would have changed their record to 15 and 10 and they currently would be in fourth place in the west, only trailing Golden State, Houston and San Antonio and above the Timberwolves!!!!
