If the Lakers don't solve the problems on defense, they might very well not make the playoffs. If they do make it, they won't get far. I certainly don't see Nash helping with the defense.

I can agree that the lakers could solve their problems with improved D, their offense is top 10 in the league in both shooting % and total points. The cRaptors, however, are near the bottom in both. In fact last 4 games their field goal percentage have been pretty bad: 35%, 39%, 40% and 40%. Just dismal, how can you expect to win with that? On the year the only Raptors regulars with decent shooting % are Derozan, Amir, Ed and JV. Jose's lighting it up from 3, but his overall % isn't great. Lowry dropping fast, at 40%, soon to be in the 30's if his shot selection doesn't improve. Every other rotation player has a shooting percentage in the 30's, excluding John Lucas' 27% and Landry Fields 21%. All you Alan Anderson fans realize he was shooting 31% before being injured right? Without a doubt one of the worst run offences in the league this year.
