The Lakers hold the fourth worst winning percentage in the NBA with an overall record of 13-37, which includes a road record of 6-20. Their most recent display of inefficiency has covered three cities during their current road trip. The path to these cities (New York, Milwaukee, and Orlando) are shown below.
On February 1st, the Lakers began their trip in Madison Square Garden to play a team with a lower winning percentage than them. The fans in the building witnessed the lowly New York Knicks blow-out the Lakers 92-80 behind 31 points from Carmelo Anthony.
Milwaukee was the location of the next substandard performance by the Lakers. On February 4th, the patrons in the BMO Harris Bradley Center witnessed the Lakers give up a six point lead with less than a minute to play in regulation and lose to the Bucks 113-105 in overtime.
The Lakers continued their road difficulties this past Friday at the Amway Center in Orlando. For the second game in a row, the Lakers lost a fourth quarter lead, eventually losing to the Magic 103-97.
The final stop on the current trip will be in Cleveland. Even though the Cavaliers have dealt with their own problems of inconsistency this season, Lakers fans should not expect their road struggles to turn around anytime soon.
