After a 13-13 start to the season, the Lakers are just 5-21 since. Yesterday was their 6th consecutive home loss, tying an all-time franchise record set 21 years ago in 1992-93. LA's current win percentage of .346 puts them on pace for their worst season since 1959-60, when they finished 25-50.
The Lakers are just a pathetic basketball team right now, and as Celtics fans we should be relishing in their misery. Unfortunately in this bizarro NBA season there is a major downside to watching them struggle:
Last night's loss dropped LA's record to 18-34, which for the first time since early November puts them ahead of Boston (19-34) in the draft lottery standings.
