The Los Angeles Lakers are on their longest winning streak so far this season after defeating the Atlanta Hawks 134-118 at Crypto.com Arena. Five players finished the game with double-digit scoring for the winners, with LeBron James leading the charge with 32 points.
According to Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, his players are feeling more comfortable and, as a result, the purple and gold won four games in a row. “The guys are just getting comfortable with the way we’re playing right now,” Vogel said postgame.
“Our team evolves when you’re playing through Anthony Davis and Anthony Davis goes out it takes a little time for us to adjust. I think you saw that obviously with us taking some L’s early.
“But playing the smaller lineups with Bron at center it’s just allowed other guys to get a little more comfortable and has allowed Bron to get going as well in terms of not just creating everything himself but being a receiver more. It’s opened things up for guys like Malik, Avery, Talen, even Melo, Russ had a strong game with 13 assists. Just a lot things open up.”
