Tide Turns On Lakers

Posted by

Wow, what has happened to the reigning NBA champions of late? The Los Angeles Lakers who make a habit of dominating most of the teams they meet have suddenly hit a roadblock. After last nights loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Lakers now find themselves in the unfortunate situation of having lost three straight games. That is a most unusual occurance for the team who had lost three in a row only one time since adding Paul Gasol to their line-up as a great tandem with Kobe Bryant. Interestingly enough, while momentum can carry a team along on a winning streak, it can also work in the reverse. Once you lose a game or two it can become a slippery slope where it becomes difficult to change direction. Perhaps that is what is taking place with Bryant and Crew. It will be interesting to see how long the slide lasts.
