The Los Angeles Lakers are not in a position that they expected to be at the halfway point of the season. After 41 games, they are seventh in the Western Conference with 21 wins and 20 losses.

According to Lakers legend Derek Fisher, the purple and gold have been improving their game as of late and things are starting to look better. “Considering everything, it’s not as bad as it maybe felt a month ago, six weeks ago,” Fisher said.

“Because there were some bad losses mixed in, couple of OKC games, another couple games that were just unexplainable the loss to Minnesota at home and the Lakers are easily five, six, seven games above five hundred.”
