Head Coach Frank Vogel’s job was already rumored to be in jeopardy and last night’s loss to the Indiana Pacers did nothing to improve his prospects. The Lakers had a chance to come together and make a statement in support of Vogel but failed miserably. Dan is certain they couldn’t have scripted a worse outcome and doubts Frank Vogel will still have his job when they return to Los Angeles after their upcoming 10-game road trip.
Dan Patrick: “This is a game you’re supposed to win. This is a game where the team comes together to support Frank Vogel, ‘We’re going to put together a great effort here!’ And then all of a sudden you go, ‘We lost at home...’ If you were going to script, and this is the land of scripts; if you were going to script a worst case scenario, you did it! Home loss to a bad team, a bad road team; Russell Westbrook gets benched, doesn’t stay around to talk to the media.”
