The Los Angeles Lakers went through a four-game losing streak in February and also lost the last game before the NBA All-Star break. They have turned it around after returning to action. The reigning NBA champions are have now won four games in a row after defeating the Charlotte Hornets last night.

According to the Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, his team needed a break even though they did not want to talk about it previously. “It was definitely needed,” he said.

“We didn’t want to talk about it at the tame but it was clear our guys sort of hit a wall after the short offseason. We came out of the gates strong, suffered some injuries and then that stretch before the break it was pretty clear that our guys were a little bit fatigued, the shots were short, the minds were a little bit fatigued.

“But we’ve come out of the gates, I think Bron set a great tone for us saying it’s go time post All-Star break. Our guys have really responded with really good play against some good teams to lead this four-game winning streak.”
