Key Stat: Allowed 34 fast-break points in two first-round games
It takes a team effort to mess up this bad in one area.
The Los Angeles Lakers feature one of the worst transition defenses the NBA has seen in recent years, as a combination of age, slow foot speed and poor execution has haunted them all season.
If they don't have it fixed by now, I highly doubt things will get better as the first round goes on.
In each of the first two games against the San Antonio Spurs, L.A. yielded 17 fast-break points.
Game 2 was especially embarrassing, because everyone on the Spurs was getting free. Speedsters Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard weren't the only transition beneficiaries; guys like Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter were getting easy buckets as well.
The Lakers need to cut those fast-break allowances in half if they want to stay competitive in this series.
