“That’s the way the game goes. It’s a make-or-miss league,” Darvin Ham reacted after his 11th consecutive loss to Nuggets

Darvin Ham spoke to reporters following the Lakers’ 107-12 loss against the Nuggets in Game 3, making their playoff defeat 0-3 in their 11th consecutive loss to the Nuggets since 2022.

Darvin Ham called the loss a poor shooting night, stating, “The point-blank shots where guys who are off are missing shots they normally make, and that’s the way the game goes. It’s a make-or-miss league. When you can’t get a bucket and they’re scoring on a run, it’s tough. But we have to keep the scoreboard moving.”

The Lakers’ ongoing struggles have led to discussions about coaching efficiency. Fans are worried that the Nuggets’ coaching staff has outperformed the Lakers’, showcasing remarkable consistency in executing that reflects well on their coaching.

Ham’s responses regarding the Lakers’ difficulties have been severe. Whether attributing issues to referee decisions or acknowledging challenges in stopping Nikola Jokic, it’s evident that the Lakers’ coaching staff faces challenges in matching up against Coach Malone and the Nuggets.

The players’ performances are also a concern, particularly the inconsistency among role players. For instance, D’Angelo Russell scored 20 points in Game 2 but failed to score in the following game. The team’s rotation, excluding key players like LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Austin Reaves, contributed only 22 points collectively, highlighting the need for more consistent contributions beyond the star players.
