The Los Angeles Lakers completed their seven-game road trip with a win over the Charlotte Hornets. According to Derek Fisher, the reigning NBA champions deserved a lot of credit for this record.
“They deserve a lot of credit,” Fisher, who won five titles as a Laker, said. “It would have been real easy to just kind of let this one either slip away from the beginning or kind of give in to the momentum there in the fourth quarter. Proud of the team for bouncing back, limiting turnovers. Just a good win. Losing KCP after a good start.
“But this is a good road trip. I don’t think I’d ever be proud of or normally have said the Lakers going 4-3 on road trip is something to celebrate. But this is a great road trip for this team in my opinion from the distance.”
