Kendrick Perkins Highlights The Dark Side of LA Lakers After Anthony Davis' Injury

Despite Anthony Davis' injury, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Washington Wizards 119-117 to earn their 13th victory of the year.

LeBron led all scorers with 33 points, seven rebounds, and nine assists to lead all Lakers starters in double figures.

Lonnie Walker IV scored 21 points, while Thomas Bryant added a double- double of 16 points and 10 rebounds.

Once more, Anthony Davis' injury has kept him on the sidelines for a long time. The Lakers' success in November was greatly influenced by Davis' play.

The Lakers' record sans Davis is now 2-2 thanks to their victory against Washington last night.

Kendrick Perkins, a former NBA player, expressed his concerns about the Lakers in an interview:

"Obviously, they need AD, and we wish him well, but honestly, what were the Lakers doing? I mean, they don't have the roster right. They don't have the pieces.

"Unless they were planning on making a move, this is just going to send them back even more."

But Perk went on to say that the Lakers can survive in the Western Conference:

"LeBron is going to break the record... Russ has been playing phenomenal, Dennis Schroder, his energy on both ends of the floor has been great, and Thomas Bryant has shown some spurts.

"I think they're going to be okay. I think that they're going to stay afloat around that .500 range until AD gets back. I think they're in a better position than the Warriors."
