The Los Angeles Lakers have had a bumpy season by their recent standards. At 43-19, they are currently third in the Western Conference and looking to finish strong en route to a hopeful three-peat.
Oddly enough, when you look at LA's schedule you will notice they have been streaky throughout. There are three different occasions where they lost three games in a row, and five separate times when they have won five or more games in a row. The former streak must be changed if they want to go deep into May and perhaps June to seek that 17th NBA championship, one that would tie them for the all-time lead with the Boston Celtics.
They are doing well offensively, scoring 102 points per game while holding opponents to about 95.
I will take a look at all 14 current players on the Lakers' roster and assess their season thus far, resulting in a letter grade based on their performance.
With all that in mind, I hope you enjoy.
