The Los Angeles Lakers completed a series of five home games with a loss to the Chicago Bulls. After winning three of those games, the Lakers are set to take a five-game road trip to the Eastern Conference.
Along the way, the purple and gold will face the reigning NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics, Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers.
According to Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, the road trip will be good for his team, which is looking for consistency. “We welcome the road trip,” he said. “It’ll be good for us. We’ve been struggling, a little bit up and down we’re fighting for consistency and changing environment should be good for us.”
The Lakers currently have eight wins and seven losses. This record is good enough for the seventh place in the Western Conference.
