Heat Check 2020-21: Los Angeles Lakers

by December 31, 2020
Dennis Schroder of the Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers had three key offseason acquisitions in Dennis Schroder, Montrezl Harrell, and Marc Gasol. Thus far, Schroder has been the most impactful. While Gasol and Harrell have been fine, it’s taken a bit more time to get going and nearing the same levels of production they brought for the teams they played for last season.

While LeBron James and Anthony Davis may not be as productive as they were last season through their first few games, the Lakers have looked just fine and know those two will do what’s needed when the stage gets bigger.
