Dwight Howard Says the Lakers Need to Step Up on Defense

NBA365 ProductionsSenior Writer IIOctober 28, 2016

The Los Angeles Lakers have been in a bit of a rut as of late and have lost three of their last ten games. 

Dwight Howard knows what the team needs to start winning games.

We caught up with the Lakers during their shoot around in New York City to hear what the big man had to say about the team's recent performance, their defense and what he expects from his teammates. Even though he is averaging over a double-double per game and is a known NBA perennial All-Star, he seemed to speak his mind after practice.

Do you agree with Howard? Let us know in the comments below if you do and what the Lakers need to do to get back in the wins column!

*All statistics are as of 12/13/12
