Los Angeles Lakers head coach Darvin Ham recently made a candid admission about the team’s current mental state, revealing that the players are feeling frustrated and irritated.

The Lakers was facing a challenging first-round playoff series against the Denver Nuggets, with three consecutive losses putting them on the brink of elimination.

The Lakers had a prime opportunity to secure a victory in Game 2, but their hopes were dashed by a buzzer-beater from the Nuggets’ Jamal Murray in the final seconds.

In Game 3, the team struggled to maintain their defensive consistency and saw their offense crumble under pressure from the Nuggets.

According to reports from The Athletic’s Jovan Buha, Ham disclosed that the mood in the Lakers’ dressing room is one of irritation, but there is also a sense of optimism and a desire for change.

“Guys are irritated, frustrated, fed up, ready to make a change,” Ham stated.

It reflects team’s determination to turn their fortunes around and salvage their playoff hopes.

The Lakers are set to face the Denver Nuggets in Game 4 at the Crypto.com Arena, where a victory becomes crucial for their chances of advancing.

A loss would result in a repeat of last year’s disappointing 4-0 sweep by the Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals.

One of the key issues plaguing the Lakers this season has been their overreliance on star players LeBron James and Anthony Davis, coupled with the absence of a reliable point-of-attack defender.

They have struggled to contain the threats posed by Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic. Furthermore, their 3-point shooting, turnovers, and perimeter defense have proven to be problematic.

The Lakers’ roster composition has also presented challenges, with a lack of effective role players to support James and Davis.

The team’s bench has been hampered by injuries, limiting their overall depth and effectiveness. As a result, they have been susceptible to teams that exploit their size and skill advantages.

The Lakers face an uphill battle to overcome the Nuggets and extend their playoff run.

The team will require significant improvements and upgrades in the offseason to address their weaknesses and enhance their chances of success.
