NBA Handicapping: Lakers adjust defensive game plan

Cleveland at LA Lakers -15 O/U 199

Are the Los Angeles Lakers turning the corner defensively? That is what Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson will tell you. Jackson and assistant coach Chuck Person reportedly "added a few tweaks" to the team's defensive scheme over the past week which yielded positive results. LA remains one of the strongest “under” team in the league. Since opening the year 8-3 to the “over”, the Lakers have gone under the total in 20 of their last 27 games.


"We're figuring out the defensive system," Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said. "We never really had a system. We've always read and reacted to each other. But I think putting in the system will help us down the road and help us be better. We're just learning."

"We're trying to break habits, more than anything else," Jackson said. To really learn, you have to break the old habits. Some of those are difficult to do. We've been playing a form of defense that has been pretty good for us the last four years. But we're trying to make some adjustments in it and breaking those habits take some time."
