Markieff Morris thinks the current Lakers’ losing streak will benefit his team in the long haul. The Lakers’ forward spoke on the team’s recent struggles, after the 89-114 loss to the Utah Jazz Wednesday.
Morris, who started in place of the injured Anthony Davis, came close to a double-double, finishing the contest with 12 points and nine rebounds.
“It’s not supposed to click right away,” Morris said. “It’s supposed to take time. It’s supposed to challenge us. It’s supposed to feel like our back is against the wall.
And everybody needs that. It will bring out your true self when you got to fight when your back is against the wall when you lose a couple games. It will bring out your true self.”
Frank Vogel’s team is on a four-game losing streak with more four games remaining until the All-Star break. The next three of those games are against Portland, Golden State and Phoenix.
