The Los Angeles Lakers’ Struggles Cannot Be Blamed on Darvin Ham

The Miami Heat showed on Wednesday that they are better coached than the Los Angeles Lakers. The Heat pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 110-96 victory, and the Lakers were reportedly unhappy with head coach Darvin Ham’s constant lineup changes. The Lakers have struggled to close out games and rank as the fourth-worst fourth-quarter scoring team in the NBA. Despite criticism, Ham is trying to maximize the roster he has been given, which includes largely veteran players. The Lakers will need to make changes to their offense if they hope to avoid a similar, early end to their season.
